    I just discovered this series of essays earlier this morning. There appear to be 6-7 volumes on various future science topics. Ordered this volume that fits a special interest.

    According to Amazon since the beginning of the year:

    Ellroy - The L.A. Quartet
    Murdoch - The Sea, the Sea and A Severed Head (one volume)
    Powers - The Gold Bug Variations (finished it today - my comments are elsewhere)
    Several books about dogs, especially Boston Terriers, because I'm on the lookout
    Wright - Native Son (read)
    Schuyler - Black No More (read)
    James - Black Leopard, Red Wolf
    Cronin - The Passage (read)

    plus mysteries, thrillers etc. from the library.

    I purchase far too many books, but recently I got:

    Robert Jenson, An Introduction to Theology
    Marx, Capital Vol 1
    Keston Sutherland, Poetical Works 1990-2015
    HP Lovecraft, The Annotated HP Lovecraft
    Faulkner, Novels 1936-1940
    Morrisson, Song of Solomon
    Christopher Smart, The Religious Poetry
    RS Thomas, Collected Poems 1945-1990

    Definitely more, but that’s a sample.

    I spent $70 on a book called "From Proto-Indo-European to Proto-Germanic: A Linguistic History of English".

    It's a highly technical text intended for those of us with linguistics degrees But very interesting nonetheless.
