Re: What book are you currently reading?
Finished "Moonwalking with Einstein" by Joseph Foer, which was about memory and what techniques people use to memorize crazy things like the random order of a deck of cards in under a minute. Rather interesting, though as I told someone on the subway when she asked, it isn't a self-help book that will improve your memory and the methods used actually take quite a bit of practice and work to master. Still, gives a lot of insight into how memory and the brain works.
Now reading "Daughter of the Empire", book one of the Empire Trilogy by Raymond Feist and Janny Wurts.
It's amazing to me that, unlike in the real world, people on the internet will wear "everyone thinks I'm a moron" as a badge of honour.
