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.
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
