    • What was it about?

    • Ready Player One is a dystopian novel, and as such, takes places in the futuristic setting of the year 2044, with the entire world held in the clutches of many global, economic, and social problems. Global warming, overpopulation. and mass unemployment are just some of the larger issues at hand. Many people, including the teenaged protagonist Wade Watts, use a virtual reality video game called OASIS as an escape from these hardships. The realistic simulations and developed technology allows players to immerse themselves entirely within the game. It is a type of MMORPG, or Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. The game was created by James Haliday, who had announced on his deathbed that he had left something called an Easter egg inside OASIS. To find the egg, a player must find three keys and unlock three gates. The first person to find the Easter egg would inherit Halliday’s massive fortune and the entire corporation of OASIS.

    • There's also a movie coming out this summer.

  • “Free Will” by Sam Harris. That is the last book I have completed, but I’m currently on “The Moral Landscape” by the same author, Sam Harris. I have not been able to get to it because of my class readings getting in the way, so I’ll have to get through the semester to finish that book.

  • I probably should remember the last physical book I read, but I don't so I'm going to list (some of) the light novels I'm currently reading, which I am all up to date with (at least the English translations of when they are in other languages):
    "I was reincarnated as a magic academy"
    "Kumo desu ga, nani ka"
    "I was a sword when I reincarnated"
    "Monster who levels up"
    "Devil evolution catalogue"
    "The death mage who doesn't want a 4th time"
    "The charm of soul pets"
    I have about 50-60 or so others on the backburner on tabs on my phone, and probably another 40-50 unfinished (still being translated) in bookmarks.

  • Pretty Girls By Karin Slaughter
    Summary- More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed.

    • This is definitely on my reading list. No one better to learn from than the greatest physics teacher of all time.

    • You can't be wrong with Feynman, one of my favorite quotes from him "If i can't explain in a way that a child would understand, then i don't understand."

    • Yep, that's the theme behind the Feynman Method.

    • First love paradise ~ what was it about?

    • This is an amazing and special novel. The author of the novel is highly sensitive and a close eyewitness, so that the whole thing is preserved like a surviving specimen. The whole book repeatedly, with extremely close to the victim's perspective, straight at a kind of people take away your precious pain and pleasure is the plunder of people🍀
