I remembered something else I was going to blog about. I just finished reading two books that I can recommend, one fiction and one non-fiction. The fiction one is The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. A warning, though: this 900+ page book is just the first in a series. I think Sanderson caught something from Robert Jordan while working on The Wheel of Time. Still, I recommend anything Sanderson has written; he’s one of the best fiction writers I’ve ever read.
The non-fiction one was Known and Unknown by Donald Rumsfeld. One of the things that impressed me was how he was always insisting we have to question our assumptions. Also, I can’t resist linking to my favorite article about him.
