Official Week Of Book Reviews

It’s been a long day thus far, and I’m ready to fall out or fall into bed. I’m writing mostly because I need to get back into a writing mode. Fairly soon, I’ll have tons of papers for school, and I’ll need to get back into that mode to do a good job.

One bit of news: I made the Dean’s List last semester. My certificate came in the mail last week. So, whoopie! or whatever.

I do have plans for this week. I’m officially making it the week of Book Reviews. Yes, that’s right. I’m going to do it. I’ve read a few books that need a little bit of thought and reflection on them. Last post, I reviewed The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology by Ray Kurzweil. My upcoming reviews will include (in no particular order):

  • The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
  • Radical Evolution: The Promise and Peril of Enhancing Our Minds, Our Bodies — and What It Means to Be Human by Joel Garreau
  • Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson

So, encourage me to review these books this week. I’m still reading Fantastic Voyage by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman. Now, I’ve started on The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by Thomas L. Friedman; If You Want to Write: A Book About Art, Independence, and Spirit by Brenda Ueland; More Than Human: Embracing the Promise of Biological Enhancement by Ramez Naam; and Emma by Jane Austen

Yes, I need to finish one book before I move on to the next. I know this, yet somehow, I don’t listen to myself.
