Classic Clashes of the Carolina-Clemson Football Rivalry: AState of Disunion by Travis Haney (5/10) 27. The Two-Income Trap by Elizabeth Warren (8/10) Somehow never finished the Hunger Games series - really enjoyed the final book and looking forward to the new prequel that is out. Kokoro yoga seems fine, just not an interesting read. Interesting Stories is basically "the Russians dug a big ass hole and go to the Hell" sort of tales; somewhat enjoyable, quick read. Dare to Lead and Marc's Mission are great "self-improvement" books that I'd recommend; Marc's Mission is aimed at kids though definitely well worth it for adults. The Jakarta Method and The Two-Income Trap were both recommendations from this thread that I'd re-recommend (Jakarta Method is about US anti-communism policy in the '40s-80s its impact on the world whereas Two-Income Trap discusses the changes to housing/schooling/credit cards that have lead to an increase in bankruptcy and financial misfortune for the middle-class in the US). Project Hail Mary is easily the best book I read this year and an all-time favorite. science fiction + heart + laughs + "wow, that's fucking cool." will make a really good movie I am sure. would highly, highly recommend it.
