Reading log, 2018

Not many great books this year, but there were a few. My favorite is Mildred Pierce by James M. Cain. Number two is Into Thin Air, by Jon Krakauer, about climbing Mount Everest.

I also enjoyed the collection of short stories by Ted Chiang, Stories of Your Life and Others. The titular story, “Story of Your Life,” was made into the science fiction movie Arrival, released in 2016.
