    Just finished after far too long of a time Fight Your Own War: Power Electronics and Noise Culture

    Lots of information from the very beginnings of it all to now and a lot of in depths looks at various niches in it and views on it sort of presented in a zine like manner. Broken up into a bunch of section I suppose you can read in any order.

    The text was really small and packed together in this one so it was harder to read and I'm trying to read more even though reading is extremely difficult for me. Many months of Lions Mane treatment down I know am excited to have found the ability to and try to every day now bit by bit to help fluidly integrate it into my life. I able to read more and more every day now while remaining more functional because I noticed before when I would read after a while I would get very slow and mentally unstable if I did too much which is no longer happening as easily. Like I'll become fixated on the text but after my mind isn't able to switch out of that isolated mode of function if that makes sense and immediately move on to some other sensory experience. I've never heard of anyone else with the issue so it's obviously either very rare or to embarrassing with those that have whatever to call this condition to talk about in fears of being called stupid or crazy.

    Anyhow next up and currently reading is Grudge For Life: A Book About Ramleh by Richard Johnson. Which so far appears to be a series of interviews with someone from the group and other commentary. Limited to 500 copies too so probably soon be a very rare text. No idea if the author did anything else but I like to focus on a single text at a time.

    I finished Pet Semetary. I didn't like it. I found it to be boring, and King prose isn't my cup of tea either. I also read Write to Market, it's writing advice to write a book that sells; nothing insightful I found.

    Now I'm reading the last 100 pages of Catch-22. After I'm done I really have to continue to work my journey through Ulysses, which I've read up to chapter 7.

    For quite a long time now I’ve let my reaing be unorganized. I’m unsure if it’s the right way, might go back to the rule: 1 non-fiction and 1 fiction before moving on to new books.
    Fiction books are the Vera Series from Ann Cleeves and the DI Smith Series by Peter Grainger.
