Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Its high time I start reading something besides epic fantasy on my business trips and make better use of my reading time with some nonfiction. My main issue is that I have zero idea as to what's good in my areas of interest: China, gender, politics, history, drugs, social studies in general, animals, and history off the top of my head. I've also had a number of those interests kicked off simply because on the rare occasion I did read a nonfiction book it was well written enough that I stayed interested. So a book doesn't necessarily have to fall in to that category either, those are just subjects I know I could read about even with dry writing.
Nonfiction I've read and liked:
America: A Citizens Guide to Democracy
... And that's actually about it.
Did not like:
Guns, Germs, and Steel. Dead boring and I only made it through because it was an audio book and I was driving.
The only subject matter I specifically avoid is anything especially gruesome in detail. My imagination runs away with me plenty so stuff about Unit 731 or details of concentration camps etc I'd rather avoid.
