Well, here it is, the final day, and I have another question.

Max, may I ask for a recommendation of a non-magic book you've recently enjoyed reading?

When I'm not traveling, most of my reading is non-fiction. Haven't read anything lately that knocked me out (e.g., "A House on Fire" by John A. Jackson -- a history of the Gamble/Huff/Bell music entity that was well researched, but not told with particular flair). Most of what I read in non-magic non-fiction is probably of little interest to most on this board (would anyone really want to wade through "The Complete Journal of Townsend Harris," as I recently did?).

In fiction, I recently caught up with several of the later entries in Richard Stark's "Parker" series, which are tremendously efficient storytelling.

A couple of longtime favorites: "Call It Sleep" by Henry Roth, and "Einstein's Dreams" by Alan Lightman.
