I've updated the “Recently Read” sidebar. If you have an interest in mountaineering, Fallen Giants is worthwhile, although it has less technical analysis about the progress of high-altitude climbing than I'd like, it gets a bit repetitive, and its view of contemporary climbing is too predictable (all about the evil offspring of commerce and self-actualization). Traffic is a lot of fun, and very helpful to those who seethe about the cluelessness of other drivers (you know who you are!). The Lightness of Being could have done with a better editor — some repetitions, unflagged forward references, missing definitions — but it's really stimulating at the LHC opens up for business.
I'm close to finishing Haruki Murakami's memoir What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, which I'm loving although I'm not a runner. He teaches without preaching about focus, endurance, limitations, and aging.
