This was fun to read, but really just a superficial soap opera about Constantinople during the crusades, trying to save itself. There's a through-line of "true religion" running through that doesn't ring true. Anna has disguised herself as a eunuch t...more
Why People Believe Weird Things by Michael Shermer

A scientific approach to non-scientific thinking. It's interesting to learn what psychological and social forces push people toward believing things that make no logical sense. Often they even know that there's no logic, but they insist on their beli...more

A fascinating read, but I wanted more science. It felt a bit like it was geared to undergraduates. I wanted more in depth explanation of the science behind, for example, mirror neurons. I like that he approaches the topic from several angles - dreami...more
The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis by José Saramago
"Saramago novels are always worth reading, but this one perhaps less so than works like "Seeing" and "Blindness." The premise is an interesting one. Fernando Pessoa, the great Portuguese poet, has just died. Shortly thereafter, one of the fictitiou..." Read more of this review »
