I've just spent a week in Tenerife with the family, where I vowed I would start reading more.
I kicked off this new-look me by reading 'The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz', which is a true story about a father and son who stuck together, and survived, the Holocaust, but lost nearly everyone else around them. It's heart-breakingly stunning and I'd advise everyone to read it. It's a bit heavy, as you'd expect, but also full of courage and tells a story of how a bond like that can get you through anything.
Wow! Great recommendation Nick, I'll add it to my queue. I'm currently reading "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance With Dragons" simultaneously as the books were supposedly written as one and divided geographically instead of chronologically. I've got a handy guide telling me which chapter of which book to read and as I'm reading on my Kindle it's pretty easy and without need of post-its.
Just completed 'Zonal Marking' by Michael Cox from zonal marking site and author of 'The Mixer'. Both good reads. ZM book goes a little heavy on matches /tournaments but nonetheless a great football book!
I've followed Zonal Marking's website for a long long time and I find Cox great at explaining things tactically. He even inspired me to try my hand at blogging on tactical approaches here in South America, unfortuately it wasn't really my thing as I'm not constant enough to keep something like that going.
Also, regarding reading, I just subscribed to Marvel's "Marvel Unlimited" service, which offers over 25k comics issues with pre-made collections and the possibility of setting up your own library. You can access it on your computer and phone, with panel reading but the best way to read them is on a 10" tablet, where I really don't find difference with reading a physical comic. It costs $9.99 if you do month-by-month and around $6.25 per month if you do a yearly subscription.
Besides the A Song of Ice and Fire books I'm reading, I'm also reading the complete "Civil War (2006)" Marvel Event, with all the tie-ins and side stories, it's over 100 issues.
