What I've been reading lately

Been doing a lot of reading lately and I figured I'd share some of the better things I've come across. Nothing super new, but nevertheless, all worth checking out IMO:
Just My Type - A Book About Fonts. Fun as a diversion, and you'll learn a thing or two about type along the way. Really worth the read, and it flows extremely fast.
Thinking, Fast and Slow: Somewhere between pop psychology and a doctoral thesis. Fascinating if you haven't taken a college-level psych course with an eye towards decision-making recently, but covers a lot of the ground that modern psych classes do, so maybe not worth it if that's your path. But Kahneman is a great writer and won an economics Nobel -- so he's clearly worth listening to.
A Song of Ice and Fire -- if you are a fast reader and/or have lots of time to burn. Also, if you don't mind an author who is unsentimental about his characters.
The Art of Fielding - Better literature than all but maybe 2 or 3 books I've read. Writing is sublime, story is very good. A very fast 500 pages.
