    The Big Short was a good read...but it helped to familiarize myself with some the jargon early on.

    Just finished Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Short book but not a particularly easy or entertaining read. Some great passages and cool to get into the head of a guy that was almost literally the king of the world 2000 years ago.

    Just started The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway....god I love Hemingway...can't believe I didn't read this decades ago when I was on a Hemingway kick.

    Recently finished The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman. It’s a historical narrative about the first 30 days of World War I. Everything is well sourced but it reads more like a novel than a documentary. I found it thoroughly captivating...so much so that it kind of ruined me from starting another book right away...still need to process the magnitude of what happened a hundred years ago.

    Love Family Guy. LOL @ Balzac!

    Currently reading The Grapes of Wrath. Never read it before...my daughter is an English Lit major and wanted to talk about it so I started reading it. God what a depressing story.

    Read most of Vonnegut's stuff decades ago but missed a few. Just finished Breakfast of Champions. I'd forgotten how whimsical yet thought-provoking he can be.
