This is a discussion on What are you reading? within the INTP Forum - The Thinkers forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by Cheeseumpuffs Just getting into the series, huh? They do get harder to stick with as it progresses, ...
Just opened up The Quantum Universe (and why anything that can happen, does) By Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw. Yup. Quantum Mechanics before bed :)
I got a lot of used coffee grounds from Starbuck's, Denny's, and other places that sell coffee. I mixed quite a bit of it into heavy clay-loam soil here, then watered it in. The garden bed smells like a coffee house. Then I started thinking about the earthworms getting a buzz on caffeine. Anyway, coffee grounds for the garden:
The fountainhead by Ayn Rand.
Browsing this thread, I suddenly wanted to know more about reading habit of INTP, so I searched for INTP group on Goodreads and then disappointed to find out that it has only 1 member. Hm... I think it's quite interesting to get to know more about us INTP through what we read, and we can discuss or recommend books so why not join in group like that if you have account there... ok just saying (haven't joined yet).
And sorry for my bad English.
Foucault's The order of things: an archaeology off human sciences. Screams Ne stereotype to me right now. Fun to read so far; constantly feels like he has a million good points and an amazing direction and yet not much of a hereand now point at times.
Also got some cheap Dickens and AC Doyle compilations on my e reader for vacation reading. Definitely much more enjoyable now than when i was in grade school, though I'm still reserving judgment on whether I think they're really tha great.
I'm nearly finished with my Jack London book (which was awesome) and now I feel like I want to do some more intellectual reading.. any suggestions?
Now I'm reading The hunger games trilogy (slowpoke, I know) and the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy trilogy of 5 books. I'm enjoying them both, the humour of Douglas Adams (hitchhiker's guide) is just wonderful, random to say the least.
Previous books I've enjoyed that are non-fiction and somewhat intellectual but more than just theories, are the books from Dan Ariely, 'predictably irrational' and 'the upside of irrationality', with a third coming soon. I've also enjoyed Leonard Mlodinow's 'The drunkard's walk, How randomness rules our lives', although it wasn't as smooth to read as Dan Ariely his books, could just be me though.
There are many books I yet have to read, I seem to have a tendency to buy them faster than I can care to read them, which isn't uncommon here I suppose.
Barbara Pym. I have a thing for 20th century (and 19th) women writers.
