No Country for Old Men, Moral Minds, Predictably Irrational.
Recently finished: On Chesil Beach, The Amazing Adventures of
Kavalier and Clay, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. The
Fly Swatter (a biography of the economic historian Alexander
Gerschenkron - he used to challenge his Grandson to read passages
from history books in under 2 minutes, yell out time splits as he
was reading, and then quiz him on the contents - his grandson wrote
the biography), Foucault's Pendulum, Slaughterhouse Five.
Some books I like (these were my favorite books when I was a senior
in high school and since then I haven't bothered to reconsider what
my favorite books might be now):
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Foundation trilogy, Dune,
Ender's Game, How The Mind Works, and Up Your Score: The
Underground Guide to the SATs (2003-2004 edition).
My favorite TV shows are The Wire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Friday
Night Lights, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under
(especially the final episode), Arrested Development, Curb Your
Enthusiasm, the Daily Show and Colbert Report, and the first three
seasons of The Office (and if this were 10 years ago Seinfeld and
Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump (I like a lot of movies, but never
really thought about which were my favorite, I'm not sure why these
two came to mind)
