June - July Reading List

  • Good Calories, Bad Calories. Gary Taubes.

  • Triplanetary. Edward E. "Doc" Smith.

  • Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea. Jules Verne.

  • The Swiss Family Robinson. Johann David Wyss.


  1. Woo exarkun! TriPlanetary was June/July reading for me too! :)
    (Literally -- started during end of June, finished during July)
    Clearly, that indicates tummy poking must be initiated!!!!

  2. You read a lot! What did you think of those books? I was the one who recommended _GCBC_ to you at PyCon 2009. I read _20KLUtS_ and _SFR_ when I was a kid and now I don't remember. Well, good opportunity for me to discover them anew, this time perhaps with my children.

  3. I always feel like I read so little these days. :)

    Thanks very much for the GCBC recommendation. It was extremely interesting and enlightening (somewhat sad too, but better to know than not to know). I've passed on the recommendation to a couple other people. :)

  4. I think that reading coincidences yield poking protection for at least 30 days.

  5. I am unsure about that, tiny friend!
