So anyway, thought you'd be interested, I'm currently reading two books written by musicians.

Phil Collins' Not Dead Yet and David Byrne's How Music Works. Bot are definitely worth a read. The former is more or less our typical autobiography, but I must say I'm surprised how well it's written, how much fun it is and it's generally a very interesting read. It might help that I never actually had any problem with Collins in general and I never understood the hate, but even if you did hate him, I think you might be interested in the book.

The latter is ... very atypical. Part autobiography, part musical theory, part musical sociology and anthropology, part music business tips... but I think it's very brilliant. This one is a must-read even if you hated Talking Heads with a passion (is there even such a person?).

On the Malazan front I'm still reading Esslemont's Return of the Crimson Guard - it's a bore, really, but I try to persevere.

Also re-reading the Rowling's Galbraith books, 'cause Lethal White just came out in Czech and I

Opened Master and Commander, but I don't know if I'm not gonna postpone it. Seems a bit too grand a stipulation to make to myself currently.

Also reading The Benedict's Option and The Seven Storey Mountain on the spiritual front.

Are these books translated into Spanish or do you read them in English?

Just read Philip Pullman's The Secret Commonwealth. One of the rare occasions you can take a guess what the author was reading when he was writing.
Don't get me wrong, I quite liked it - there are not so many books (apart from some encyclopaedias) that have "black metal" "Bulgaria" and "elephant" within the body text - and I appreciated those inner jokes I recognized, or thought to recognize. Eagerly anticipating the third part, and hoping there will be no pandemic involved.
