Things have been hectic this week and so I haven’t had a chance to write a proper post. But I promised myself that I would put up a post each week, so here it is.
This week I’ve been reading N.T. Wright, who I’ve seen referenced as the greatest living theologian – book Simply Christian. I have a summary Aquinas did of his Summa Theologica and several books on St. Francis to read also.
I’ve also been working my way through Java data structures; it’s interesting to see how much more I can understand things with that background. Tree searches, for example, are a key component in Artificial Intelligence. I have six chapters in this book, which is more of an introduction; then, I have books dedicated to data structures and algorithms to work through.
I’ve also been keeping up on my reading in international affairs. I just got a book from the library on counterinsurgency called Hearts and Minds: A People’s History of Counterinsurgency. I also have been going through a survey book on strategy and I have Louis Freedman’s Strategy: A History waiting for me as well.
So lots of work and reading; tonight, though, is date night at the symphony and Mozart!
