A friend who is a reader here (and a monthly donor!) recommended a book recently, while we were chatting during evening drinks and cigars at Acton U (he and his wife went to that, too – smart people).
I just finished the audio version and I must pass it along. It was great fun!
Consider listening to it, since an audio book plays a part! I had it on my Kindle, with the Audible option (which, in a cool way, synchs across your reading options).

It’s wonderfully nerdy and old fashioned at the same time.
Don’t have a Kindle yet? Get a Paperwhite HERE. One of you wonderful readers sent me one. I have been using it in tandem with my older Kindle. The Paperwhite is super slim and small, easy to slide into a pocket. There is the Kindle Fire HERE. I haven’t used one of those yet.
