My two cents, but please share yours:

The annual series on reading the US Constitution will begin in the new year, and the Abundance Frontier series will continue, too. Enjoy.

What was your favorite book that you read in 2017?

My two cents, but please share yours:

It was tough to choose, but I’m going with Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham. The main character, Sebastian Rudd, became more interesting as the story progressed.

What are you currently reading?

My two cents, but please share yours:

For fiction, I’m reading One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus for my neighborhood book club.

For nonfiction, I’m still plodding through WTF?: What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us by Tim O’Reilly. This newly published book examines near-future technology from a mostly AI (artificial intelligence) perspective.
