If nothing else, I am committing to posting books I read this year to LJ.

So far, it's been just two I've started and finished in this calendar year. Pathetic, I know.

The first was fiction, "Gentlemen of the Road: A Tale of Adventure" by Michael Chabon. Enjoyable, but I don't see myself revisiting. The adventures of a pair 10th century AD Jewish mercenaries.

The second was a biography, "The Man Who Loved Only Numbers: The Story of Paul Erdos and the Search for Mathematical Truth" by Paul Hoffman. Erdos was a famous mathematician who spent his life travelling the world to co-write papers with other mathematicians. Enjoyed that a bit more, and it reminded me of all the math courses I took.
