My husband’s second quarter reads are here! It is down a bit, but that’s because once the weather warmed up, he spent more time outside in the garden/hop yard. He also had a relatively short-lived addiction to playing Roller Coaster Tycoon on the iPad. His reading choices all managed to reflect his trifecta of science nonfiction, Native American history, and (translated) science fiction. As is normal, getting anything out of him regarding his thoughts are near impossible. I know he loved Sapiens because he made me watch the corresponding TED Talk video and then told me to read the book. He intends to finish The Passage trilogy, so I take that as a vote of confidence for the series (and the books fit multiple Read Harder categories, so added bonus!). He also likes Yoss’ books. Where I’m a sucker for a good romance novel, he’s a sucker for translated science fiction.
