Here we go again. It's 2018 and time to reset the book reading challenge. Let's all try to read one book a week this year, but if that's too much just list whatever you read because reading is fun. Also, try to rate the books you finish from 1 to 10 so other people can see what might be a good book to pick up.

1) Currently Reading - Oathbringer (The Stormlight Archive #3) - Brandon Sanderson

No way I will be able to do 1 per week. My goal is usually 2 per month, but I dont usually make it.

I finished this one just after the new year:

1) Neptunes Inferno: The US Navy at Guadalcanal / Rating = 5/10 Its a pretty dry non-fictional recount of events. No character development or progression, bounces around quite a bit, hard to follow.
2) Currently on The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers

I rarely read for fun anymore, but:

"Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are" has been good so far.

2) Currently Reading - Persepolis Rising (The Expanse #7) - James S.A. Corey

Holy crap that was a long ass book! It was really well written, but shit, I guess that's why it took Sanderson three years to finish.

^Yeah, I loved The Devil in the White City. I don't read much nonfiction, but I learned of this book on this board. I was initially intrigued by the serial killer, but wound up more fascinated by the fair. Wish I could have experienced it. I've dabbled in coin collecting since I was a kid, and this book inspired me to get the quarter and half dollar commemorative coins the US mint produced for the fair.
