I really enjoy sci-fi, philosophy, and books about “life.” Lately I’ve gotten more into traditional woodworking and pre-industrial era living.

I have more books than I can read, but I’m always looking for recommendations. :-J

@xylogx thanks, I’ll check that out! I’ll give you one back since you mention on your profile that you’re in IT. Cyberstorm by Mathew Mather. You may have already read it, but it’s worth a look if you haven’t.

Also, Andy Weir wrote another one called Randomize that included quantum physics. It ended up only being the first few chapters though. Not sure if he plans to finish it.

wants to read Worked by Joshua Klein

Joshua Klein: Worked (Paperback, 2022, Mortise & Tenon Magazine) No rating

The podcasts and videos from Joshua and Mike have been amazing new perspectives on traditional woodworking and the philosophy we can bring forward from historical practices. This book seems to be a great intro to the world of hand tool woodworking and provides a straightforward look at how to start. The fantastic photos really aid in understanding the descriptions of practices.

Physics descriptive sci fi thriller

5 stars

I really enjoy Andy Weir’s writing especially because he brings his experience with astrophysics to his story telling, so essentially everything that happens in the book is how it works likely physically occur in real life. Some people may not enjoy the amount of description of physics throughout the book, but for me, it enhances the story.

This book is the most “thriller-y” out of the books I’ve read from the author. It did a good job of hooking me on and wanting me to discover more about the past of the protagonist. The map in the book aided in envisioning how the story unfolds.
