Wednesday reading — questions and answers

What I've been reading

I read, or rather listened to, What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions. I would describe the performance by Wil Wheaton as 'competent,' but other than that it was a fun roadtrip book.

I read My Brilliant Friend, the first of those Neapolitan novels that everyone's been raving about, and understandably so. There are nowhere near enough books where the most important relationship is a complicated friendship between two women—well, girls, in most of this volume, anyway.

On our return trip we listened to David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants. Malcolm Gladwell is always an engaging writer—maybe even a little too engaging—but I have to say, he has the most soothing voice. I could listen to him narrate his own books all day.

What I'm reading now

The Story of a New Name, the second Neapolitan novel.
