Metal Music Manual: Producing, Engineering, Mixing and Mastering by Mark Mynett.

Metal Music Manual by Mark Mynett

Am just over half the way through. Well written informative book on the subject. Very good.
Plan to use the knowledge to produce some metal, although I am not from a metal background.

Even more reason to read and do. As this is how you learn and how new things start. :-)

Women, by Charles Bukowski.

Former skid row drunk, former post office employee, Henry Chinaski, is finally making himself known as a writer and a poet, and sees his emerging success as a means to cure his four year long dry spell without sex. A Christmas present from my wife, this is funny in a wonderfully juvenile way that only Bukowski could write.

Recently, I bought myself a great device pickmyreader.com and I began to enjoy reading various interesting stories that interested me in the bookstore. I weighed the pros and cons before buying and decided for myself whether it was worth it or not. For example, an e-book takes up little space, and can contain a large number of interesting and exciting stories. The last book I read was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I really liked it and I advise you to pass the time by reading it too.

Flaubert, Madame Bovary (1856)

I've never thought much of her morality, but I love Flaubert's writing.

Simulcra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard.

I'm finding it a good source of media and literary analysis but I disagree with its understanding of how reality works. I find that his perspective is limited - he assumes his reader has the same experiences and demographics to him - but he's really prescient in how he basically foresaw our online world esp in terms of things like online marketplaces (eg Amazon) and online socialising (eg social media).

It's my first Bookriot challenge: read a book that you have been intimidated to read.
