Dark Sacred Night (Harry Bosch #21), Michael Connely 2018. October 13, 2018 - the day I picked up Harry Bosch #1 The Black Echo. Been reading them one after another and slowed down on purpose to make them last. A few pages in and this latest one is good already.

A book on tool steel published by Allegheny Ludlum. Very informative for the time.

Conflict Cummunication: A New Paradigm in Conscious Communication, by Rory Miller. This is one of the better books I've read in a good while (and I've been reading some good ones, too).

Another Jack Ryan Jr novel.
Just finished a decent James Patterson novel. It was about his Texas Ranger Rory Yates. It was a murder mystery. I figured out the killer before the first 100 pages. Still a decent read.

I have been interested in the problem of "too much" lately. Too much information, too many blog posts, too many tweets, too many movies, etc. etc. This has made me interested in information itself. I was curious if the academics of the world have come up with any interesting models to deal with it.

So I have been reading "The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood" by James Gleick. I'm only about 50 pages in so far, and it has mostly been a quick recount on the history of computing and information theory. I'm still hopeful it will provide something, but I'm starting to think it's all "soft" stuff. I may have to pick up a textbook on the matter, but I'm worried that route will lead to reading so dry I never get further than 20 pages in...

Started reading 'Alone at Dawn' on Monday... I'm about 1/3 of the way through and man... Operation Anaconda was a shit show. Great book though.
