Last week I read three books, which seems to be roughly the average at the moment. Two of them were by Viktor Frankl and the other I’m not yet allowed to name because it won’t be coming out until later in the year. But here’s a brief round-up anyway.

Previously I’ve been mini-reviewing books in the reading list section at the end of my weekly round-ups, but they’ve been getting a bit long and unwieldy of late so I thought I’d move them to their own separate post.
Sometimes a book will merit a post all of its own, or I’ll be given a book by a publisher in exchange for a full review, in which case they’ll be reviewed separately. But I do like to keep track of the books I’ve read and what I liked / disliked about them, and I read so much that I don’t have time to write full reviews of everything.

If you’re just starting to read about philosophy of mind, this is probably a good one to read. It ties together the psychology, neuroscience and philosophy quite nicely, without going into too much depth about any of them.
Finally, a week in which I have once again had time to read as much as I like. This week, six books, most of which were novels. I’ve now moved onto Augustine: Conversions and Confessions by Robin Lane Fox, which I expect I’ll stick with for a while.
I walked up to the librarian.
“Hello,” I said, “I would like to read a book in which the protagonist’s point of view switches between the present and the past. Do you have any suggestions?”
