I am about 20% (neat kindle feature) done with American Gods. I forgot how much I enjoyed this book. While I dont have a favorite book per-say, It is in my top 3-5.

I tried reading The Vegetarian, but I think I need alcohol to get me through it. I'm reading After Dark by Haruki Murakami, but I just started and it's great so far. Other than that, I don't have much to comment on.

Pretty much just read historical biographies on John Tyler, William Henry Harrison, Martin Van Buren, and Andrew Jackson. Currently reading about James Polk.

Did work in a work of fiction called The Raw Shark Texts. Kinda love it. It's this pretty meta-mystery novel that turns into the film Jaws, but with a "conceptual shark." Hard to explain, but I enjoyed it a lot. Dialogue is iffy, but otherwise solid.


Currently reading:

One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps

and

The Impeachers (about the impeachment of Andrew Johnson)

I finished books 1-3 of the Dark Tower Series. The Wastelands was some wild shit. Fucking Blaine.

I was reading Wizard and Glass. I have it and the rest of the series on my Kindle. I plan to finish it eventually but realistically I am hoping to do a lot of my reading in Spanish While I am stateside. I want to save the majority if not all of my Kindle books for when I am back in Guatemala.

I am reading "Esperanza Renace" pretty good read. I read it in English when I was a kid. Extremely interesting to read it as an adult but in Spanish.

Next on my list are:

La Sombra del Viento, El Amor en los tiemps de Colera, Cien años de soledad, El general en su laberinto.

Once I finish those I plan on reading:

Eso (Steven Kings "IT" the spanish edition).


I want to buy the Spanish Editions of World War Z and the Stand but physical copies are ridiculously expensive. Ill have to purchase them digitally in the future.

Wizard and Glass is my personal favorite of the series. I used to read it over and over again, obsessively. Definitely let us know how you liked it.

Reading Teen Roland interacting with High Society is pretty dam amusing. It reads like War and Peace set in the Dark Tower Universe.

Its good.
