What are you reading?

Everything else. Sometimes even national leaders just want to hang out.

I'm currently re-reading Darwin's 'Voyage of the Beagle'.
And again...
Finished that: Now [back] on his 'Origin of Species'.
(My copies of the two are combined into a single volume...)

That’s a good one. I reread Lord of the Flies about a year and a half ago. It’s a very worthwhile read.

I’m currently working my way through Melville’s Moby Dick. I basically just started it but am enjoying the novel so far.

A true classic, it is. I'm sure you will enjoy it thoroughly.

I'm reading "Black Leopard, Red Wolf". It's an African-inspired fantasy by Jamaican writer Marlon James.

"Self-Defense for Gentlemen and Ladies: A Nineteenth-Century Treatise on Boxing, Kicking, Grappling, and Fencing with the Cane and Quarterstaff"

I never cared much for modern weapons, but I am generally paranoid enough to want to learn some form of self-defense. I became interested in Colonel Thomas Monstery's work after learning that he made a point of teaching women as well as men, one of few back then who was willing to. And it worked, the women he trained could beat any master fencers/duelists. I want to be like that.
