Have you ever read a book *on your phone?* I started doing it yrs ago when I couldn’t wait for my copy of The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton to arrive in the post so I downloaded a sample. Wound up reading whole book on my mobile & 100s since! Oh look: https://t.co/giriRRreQj https://t.co/1pl74ESKvt

Tim Marshall

Just read Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall (@Itwitius), pub. 7 yrs ago, & it really makes CNN et al. look terrible w/ their “What’s going on it Putin’s mind?? Impossible to know!” stuff. As ever, history BLINDINGLY illuminates the present. Good book! https://t.co/sFZNtjcWGu

Walter Tevis

Just read The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. Very good. Astonished to discover he also wrote the novels The Hustler, The Color of Money AND The Queen’s Gambit. Not bad!

Independent People

Halldor Laxness
rob delaneyrob delaney

Independent People by Halldór Laxness is kicking my ass in. Easily, easily one of the best books I’ve ever read. Like Knut Hamsun & Alice Munro, he is a worthy recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Luxuriate! https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/77287 https://t.co/QZ8AxE1ZAM

A Life in Parts

Bryan Cranston

Just finished Bryan Cranston’s autobiography. It’s really good! Was just interested in Breaking Bad behind-the-scenes stuff but his childhood was fascinating & set him up perfectly to play Walter White. Smart, thoughtful guy. Recommend!

A Heart That Works

Rob Delaney

Any time I've spoken or written publicly about [my son], countless people have gotten in touch with me and said how much it helped them... That's not because I'm anything special, it's because I'm giving voice to the experience of bereaved parents and siblings.
