Re: What book are you currently reading?
Been listening to "Sate of Fear" by Crichton, which while fantastical, offers a good breakdown of the misinformation and confusion around the term "Global Warming". A little surprised to get the sense that he was rather anti-GW, but since I'm not done, I'll wait for his personal take that he puts at the end of these types of novels. (His essay on genetics science at the end of Next truly made that novel.)
Also beginning "Magician: Apprentice" by Raymond E. Feist, which is the very beginning of the Riftwar Cycle. Currently, the series has 28 novels with at least two mroe planned. Not sure I'll read this one straight through, but am tempted to. He's an excellent story teller, without his novels getting too laid down with extra information.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
