Great Book. SlimJim22 and I have quoted from it. While very speculative, it shines a little light on a very interesting subject. There's a lot of out-there assertions, but I only grabbed it for the cosmic muons on sentient beings.

Do you all really read 1/4 of a book then start reading another one? Then stop and start reading another one??? Everyone seems to be 'reading' 10 books at a time :)

I am reading Saigon Express atm. Last book was classic Wilbur Smith, River God. Love Taita!


Well, I listen to books on tape on my ipod and in my car.  I read a book in my room, a book during office hours if I am not busy researching or writing proposals, and a book in the bathroom (lol).  So, I am usually working on four books, though the books I listen to on tape I have usually already read.  Like right now I am listening to Les MisÚrables, and I just finished crime and punishment.  The books I read at my office are usually biology related like the demon in the freezer or Protein Misfolding, Aggregation and Conformational Diseases or The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.  Then at home I read a variety of things, right now I am reading The Good Earth by Pearl Buck and A Separate Piece by John Knowles.

"Everyday Life of The Incas" by Ann Kendall.

A second time after 23 something years.

Oh, and I am also reading "The Conquest of the Incas" by John Hemming.

And "Lost City of the Incas" by Hiram Bingham, plus "The Discovery and Conquest of Peru" by Augustin de Zárate.

I am trying to find something, and comparing texts.

I hope the books will all survive the onslaught, lol

And I should add two to the pile of books I am reading:

"Brazilian Adventure" by Peter Fleming (about finding out about the fate of Percy Fawcett's expedition; a good read for those who love adventure), and Brian/Percy Fawcett's "Exploration Fawcett"  (even better), the Dutch edition ("In de greep van onbekend Amerika").

I wish I was there again......

I've read a lot of his articles and speeches but none of his books.  He's actually more credible
than his detractors sometimes.  At least he sticks with logic.  I think he's a very good writer but
I'm less impressed by his contentions and the support for them.

He won't be forgotten anytime soon.

I'm still reading the Pyramid Texts.  :geek:

I'm fascinated with a book called A Voyage to Arcturus, [David Lindsay]
I've read it quite a few times, although I still struggle to fully understand it...I re read it every few years..I've just picked it up a few days ago to give it another bash.
