- I'm continuing to read 'Brothers Karamazov'. The second half of it is due for next November.
- In October, I read 'Will in the World' by Stephen Greenblatt. The book is a biographical look at Shakespeare. It attempts to reconcile what little is known of his life with things that appear in his plays. It's interesting but not convincing. In fact, for nearly every theory, Greenblatt points out counter evidence. A good read for general info and interesting, but I wouldn't take it to the bank.
- Friends of mine convinced me to give the Game of Thrones books a read. I'm part way through the third book now. The story is something of a retelling of the War of the Roses set in a lightly fantasy world. The writing follows several characters and virtually no one is safe. It's compelling and very readable. The series has five books so far with (at least) a sixth one due at some point in the future. After the third one, I plan on setting it aside for a while.
I'll post the reading list for year four in a couple of weeks.
