    Just finishing Rex Stout's The Second Confession, a Nero Wolfe mystery. One of the best, so far, in the corpus. I'm reading them all in order.

    Lightxmyfire, that’s on my list! I finished Robert Jordan’s WOT and loved it, and I’ve heard good things about the Malazon series as well. I’m itching to read it now

    @Smokey - I can't recommend the series highly enough! Strap in, it's a lot and you won't be able to put it down!

    Just finished Tombland by C.J. Sansom. Very deeply researched Tudor England historical novel, the latest in a series that starts with Dissolution. All are recommended.

    Rereading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. First read this high school. It gets more topical by the year.

    @Missionpipe Objectivism is certainly an interesting philosophy to ponder. Now that I'm older I might have to re-read that one as well, ~100 page philosophical Galt rant toward the end blew my mind at 14. I've also heard in his later work Terry Goodkind applies a lot of Rand's perspective to his fiction, which is interesting considering it's Tolkienesque fantasy.

    Enjoy the book and your retirement even more! Cheers!

    Listening to "Mycroft and Sherlock" by Kareem Abdul-jabbar. It's an excellent listen. Luckily the 15 hour day is almost over.
