Book Three: The Temporal Void

You might find a few more regular updates on books. While I took a head start because I had chosen three books that had tiny text and a very large number of pages and had no idea how much time or how quickly I could read, I have discovered, I can read very quickly if they book pulls me in. More on this in the next book review.

Think Like a Freak

Book two for the year, not quite fiction but certainly not something I would say is work related. This is the third book from the duo of Dubner and Levitt but very different from their previous two Freakonomics books.rnrnrnWhile the others involve the pair discovering and arguing certain facts and outcomes this is all about getting people to think in the way that they have been for years and how both the original books were delivered. It gives little examples and bits of information to illustrate their points and the way that they will work, ideas of how to, as it says, think like a freak or in the way that they do. Small things, simple changes.

The Dreaming Void: The Void trilogy: Book One

Right at that point I had decided I need something to read and something physical... I feel that I'm actually more likely to read something properly if it is a real tree, I have a few other books by Hamilton (none read by me but given to me with a big recommendation), this offer was there staring me in the face so I went for it.
