Hi, all! I can't believe the last post on this thread was over four years ago. A lot of interesting titles mentioned here, though. I am looking forward to sifting through this thread more carefully to identify potential reads.

I also hope it is alright to make a belated post on this thread. It is always nice to hear what one is reading and why. I hope this thread is active again :D

Anyhow, I am currently reading non-fiction for personal purposes and coursework (which, unfortunately, is tedious and mandatory).

Non-fiction: I am currently reading John Keane's Global Civil Society, which is a very interesting account of associational power and alternatives to the nation-state paradigm. It mainly focuses on the possibility of a border-less global, non-violent civil society. Keane's arguments are very convincing and well-presented. Interestingly, he categorizes social units such as sports clubs, theatre groups, and other similar units as constituents of global civil society. Very interesting.
On the other hand, I am also brushing up on college-level Chemistry for my Phd proposal. The readings are fairly straightforward, but excessive, in my opinion. I don't plan to read the entire list. I'd like to skim the material carefully to save some time. It's quite tedious to read title after title of natural science. Phew!
