What’s Ricky reading?

I’ve spent the last year or so working my way through Don Quixote, and I’m still nowhere near completing it. It’s not that it’s a bad book, it’s more that I’ve been reading multiple other things at the same time. At the moment I’m reading Nineteen Eighty-Four, which I was given for Christmas, and a micro-economics text book (I don’t know why). I’ve also just started reading Einstein’s Relativity – The Special and the General Theory which I found on Karen’s bookshelf. I’ve also become and avid reader of the The Economist, which NICTA QRL has a subscription of. That newspaper (yes, I know it looks like a magazine, but it’s a newspaper, okay) invariably makes for interesting reading. It has become my primary source for keeping abreast of what’s happening in the world. The writing is excellent, and whenever an argument is made in favour or against a policy etc., it is always well reasoned. It also has good coverage of the most important or interesting scientific news of the week, and each quarter it has a special section on technology, which is often very cool.

So much to read, so little time…
