AND

"The Borders of Life" by G.A. Kathryns a.k.a AgedAngel.

Needless to say I'm already a fan and I don't even have the book yet!

Snow City by G.A.Kathryns (AKA Aged Angel on this forum)
I loved this book! The only way I will ever get to play Bach’s Chaconne is by identifying with the main character, a professional CG player :) It was an interesting read and I am still thinking about the story and where it went - the mark of a good book in my mind. So thank you, Aged Angel!

Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny. Twenty Lessons from the 20th Century - quite educative for those who observe the steady transformation of democratic states into populist and authoritarian regimes with growing unease.

"Factfulness" Hans Rosling. Interesting and useful for re-setting (and hopefully discarding)
