New Books

Just finished a few books and getting started on a fresh batch. The newly completed ones are:

The Sea by John Banville
Disenchanted Night by Wolfgang Schivelbusch

The Sea was interesting, kinda depressing, but the narrator's description of the loss of his wife was fascinating, especially to someone who's lost a loved one. Disenchanted Night was really cool, describing the social history of artificial light as it went from candles to gas lights to electric light during the nineteenth century.

This round:

One Bullet Away by Nathaniel Fick
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Tony will be pleased with this one)
Mathematics and the Physical World by Morris Kline
