    I'm not reading so much these days for personal enrichment or enjoyment as I'm trying to double down and finish my remaining credits, but I do get some in here and there.

    1) The Bible (in perpetuity)

    2) I'm slowly moving through all of Shakespeare's sonnets. Every once in a while- on a bus or during a lunch break- I break out the old ebook and devour another one. I may attempt to memorize a few of them.

    3) Why We Buy: the Science of Shopping by Paco Underhill. Interesting and inciteful. I've only barely started on it, and have mostly left it aside. When I have a bit more well-rested free time, it will be the next book I conquer.

    4) As for fiction, I've yet to read The Great Gatsby, so that is next on my fiction list.

    Devils Guard, a story of the Nazi Brigade of the French Foreign Legion fighting in Indochina. I'm fascinated by their approach.

    And lots of accounting nonesense for my WGU MBA .... This class takes me well over the mid way hump, only 1 paper, then 4 more classes left!

    The Bible (I read it every day.)

    Good to Great and Good to Great and the Social Sectors by Jim Collins

    Radical by David Platt

    I've read through several dissertations this year. Yes, just because I wanted to. Once you've completed the grueling process of writing a successful dissertation, the process/system becomes ingrained in the psyche. Some never want to look at one again. Others (like myself), if the subject of the dissertation is of personal interest, enjoy reading through the document looking for all the nuances of the scientific method.

    Recently discovered and thoroughly enjoying the mysteries of Louise Penny, about Quebec police inspector Armand Gamache. Intelligent, well-written, clever plots, and "cozy" (which seems to be the term for mysteries without graphic violence or profanity). Still Life and A Fatal Grace are the first two.

    And of course, The Bible every day (well, Ezekiel 23, anyway...).

    I'm on the penultimate book of rereading Stephen King's Dark Tower series. He recently wrote a new book that fits in between books four and five, so I took that as a cue to reread the whole thing. (Including Salem's Lot, which I reread first since I think of it as "book zero" of the series.)
