The Book List #5

Since my car died I've gained two hours per day extra reading time. I've got to be honest and say a lot of this week's spare time was spent playing Animal Crossing instead of catching up on all the books I have to read.. (sorry not sorry)

I didn't enjoy The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner as much as I did As I Lay Dying. I guess 'enjoy' isn't the right word for Faulkner's books but I feel I missed something with the The Sound and the Fury; the stream of fragmented consciousness was just too much.

Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep by David K. Randall was such an enjoyable read; the prose was fluid and gentle, making it easy to read in one sitting. Randall explores how sleep is complex and relatively unknown to us, taking readers on a tour through the realms of dreamland exploring the dark hours that make up nearly a third of our lives.

  2. if you're interested in the science of sleep, here's a great TED talk by a circadian neuroscientist who explains why sleep is so unnegotiably important to get enough of: http://www.ted.com/talks/russell_foster_why_do_we_sleep.html
