Some Tom Clancy book (SSN something or other). It's not great but keeps me occupied during my downtime working.

The Art Of War

I also read The Art of War twice, albeit many years ago--when it first came out.

So you are 2600 years old?   Shocked

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

Was reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, but after 300 pages and not a single thing of interest happening, I gave up.

Baby. That thar's a man's book.

I enjoyed the conversations in the beginning with Lawrence and Alan Turing, but after that, there was no plot progression at all, I had no idea what the conflict is, and reading about laying fiber cables undersea is incredibly dry. If I read 1/4 of a book and have absolutely no idea where it's headed, that is a poorly written book imho.

Cryptonomicon is a very enjoyable book. It gave me such great pleasure to read it. It's not often that you get an epic tome of fiction that combines treasure hunting, cryptography, a grand tour of WWII, hacking, Cap'n Crunch, the South Pacific, nerds, and dot com scheming.

Truly a wonderful book.

I'm now reading The Unincorporated Man. It seems that many here might find its premise interesting.
