Dear 100 Hour Board,

I know that this has been asked a lot before, but times keep a'changing, so here we go: read any good books lately?

-Art Spiegelman


Dear Art,

Right now I'm reading The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. It is such a good book, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to read.

Other than that, I actually consider the textbook for one of my classes to be really interesting (though I recognize that reading about taxes probably isn't enthralling for a lot of people).



Dear Art,

The most recent book I read was Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari. It's a really good take on the modern dating scene, and does a good job of balancing humor and actual research.

Before that, I read Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I liked it, though not quite as much as the Discworld series.

-The Entomophagist


Dear person,

History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell is really good so far (I'm not done yet, it's like 700 pages and it will probably take me all semester lol it's okay if you don't want to read it). I think the subject material is really interesting, and I think he was himself a fascinating person - it's fun to read his opinions and feelings between the lines and try to figure him out.

Also, I'm listening to the Harry Potter books on audiobook, which I like to think is basically like reading a book. It's been probably 8 years since I've actually read a Harry Potter book and they are even better than I remember. 



Dear Maus,

I've enjoyed many Malcolm Gladwell books, and most recently I read Blink, and loved it. I think I've already referenced this on the Board, but I recently read The Bonds That Make Us Free by C. Terry Warner. It was one of the best, life-changing books that I've ever read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is a human.

Keep it real,
Sherpa Dave.
