    I really love that this was more story-driven than action-packed. The mystery hooked me.

    I feel so pumped to come up with a talk and present somewhere after reading this!

  • 4 stars The Road to Little Dribbling
    The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson

    Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

    Still my favorite Neal Stephenson book, his story of the near future is both disturbing and hilarious.

    Apart from disliking Benedict Cumberbatch with an American accent, I enjoyed the story immensely.
