🤔 David Since Dune was mentioned I'd like to add in 'A Fire Upon the Deep' by Vernor Vinge. It was an interesting read and certain portions of the book were compelling in that it caused me to sit and reflect upon what it means to exist as a species. It's an exciting read with drama on a large scale, and has caused me to want to read more sci-fi classics

🍁 John J. Oh, really? I'm still formalising it in my head; haven't even finished my first run-through. But I'm under no illusions about how tough it's going to be to implement! Are you still making progress?

Jakub Janarek "Crashed" by Adam Tooze - a recount and explanation of the '08 financial crysis written 2 years ago or so. So far, very dense but rewarding.

🧅 Onion Samson Reading Catch-22 for the first time. Halfway through. It's hilarious and brilliant. Power struggles, hierarchy, and lots of ludicrous moments to laugh along with.

☔ Johannes Death's End by Liu Cixin, the third book in the Remembrance of Earth's Past trilogy. A to me in parts very cynical but intriguing take on the sci-fi genre.

🎲 Jamie The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck. No idea where the book came from, but I'm happy to have it in my possession. I absolutely loved The Grapes of Wrath. Going to look for a copy of East of Eden as soon as I can go to a second-hand bookshop

🧞 Bit Dune. It's a great book and the time I spend at home now made me feel less intimidated at the size

🟩 Koralatov 'Dune' is excellent, and works perfectly as a standalone book. Depending how much you like it, the sequels are well worth a read. I think 'God Emperor of Dune' the best of the entire series, with 'Dune' itself a close second, but 'God Emperor' is very love-it or hate-it.

🤔 David Dune is such a fun read that it makes the size less of a problem and more of a gift
