2015 Reading

It's been a while since I've written about books.  I've been reading away though.
Terry Pratchett's final outing, The Shepherd's Crown.  A fitting end for the discworld series.  It it obviously less polished than the other discworld books, seemingly pieced together of various parts.  But it is coherent and Pratchett through and through.
Another Pratchett book I had not yet read, Soul Music.  An interesting book that has Pratchett's hilarious perception/commentary paralleling many things in the non-fantastical universe.
After reading a friend's recommendation of the dystopian Oryx and Crake.  It reminded me alot of the dystopian Wool.   Another friend was recommending a more social/business oriented book, Never Eat Alone.  I had a few good takeaways from this book.  Growing up listening to the Heavy Metal Scorpions, I was interested in the book And Speaking of Scorpions by the drummer Herman Rarebell.  I also reviewed the book counterpart to this TED talk, The Upside of Stress.
