I’m continuing to read Fatal Discord (Michael Massing)  and Why Your Five-Year-Old Could Not Have Done That: Modern Art Explained but finished a few other books in the meantime. They are

  • A Burnable Book - this is Book 1 of Ross Holsinger‘s John Gower series. I stumbled across Book 2, The Invention of Fire,  last year and backtracked to this one. I recommend both. 
  • Change Agent - the latest Daniel Suarez book. I enjoyed this one, as I have most of his other novels. 
  • The Japanese Corpse (Amsterdam Cops #5) - This one is quite dated with way too many racial/ethnic stereotypes.  The whole series is like a time capsule of the 1970’s. I have enjoyed most of them, but this on dragged on too long.  Earlier, I’d read The Death of a Hawker (book #4) and found that one entertaining. 

Starting back to to school next week, so I’ve been browsing Halmos’ Problems for Mathematicians Young and Old to get thinking about my Problem Solving course.
