又一遍。

看了好半天,终于明白了新的是第七集,接在八几年那集后面的。还挺好看的。

一共看了二十一本,虽然小说多了点儿,但是还好吧。毕竟同时因为义工项目还看了很多其他的内容和读物。最好看的是The Art of Travel。最有用的是The Zurich Axioms和Thinking,Fast and Slow。都有改变思考方式的作用,很不错。觉得一年来自己的中文水平在缓慢提升,中文词汇量水平缓慢增加,中文写作水平也在爬升过程中,甚感欣慰。但是英文水平有点下降。语言这个东西,用什么什么就灵光。我一年写了这么多中文email,所以用进废退,无可奈何。但是2016我打算增加英文阅读量,以便保持自己的英文水平。多看小说也没关系,因为小说看得快。而且2016我的中文阅读内容已经排了很多很多了,能有多少时间看闲书都是再说的了。

  1. Thinking, Fast and Slow
  2. The Martian
  3. 琅琊榜
  4. 大般若波罗蜜多经(第二会)
  5. 再生缘:我的温柔暴君

  7. 春莺啭
  8. 双阙
  9. Religion for Atheists

  5. 赤道
  6. Ant Man
  7. 一轮明月
  8. The Miracle Worker

很好看。看了很久,因为书很长,而且需要思考,消化。所以大概从七八月开始看的吧,中间穿插着看了很多小说,调剂口味,断断续续地看到了十一月,在回美的路上,去北京的高铁上看完的。中间还带着书去独墅湖散步,在湖边的椅子上看了不少。我打算写多一点。因为中间因为一件跟老公有关的事,我们就相关问题讨论了很久。有关什么是忽悠。什么是可以接受的忽悠。忽悠能否被接受。什么是底线。等等。从技术到道德的全面讨论。总之书很好看。很多中国的互联网大佬都推荐。我才看的英文版。看完,我有个感觉,这些大佬恐怕都没有自己看:)

话说我第一次在国内看IMAX电影。要看的是Everest绝命海拔。但是我们到了,电影院说设备出了问题,要我们一个月之内回来看。当时是星期六,可我星期一就去北京然后就回美国了。所以我们星期天就回头了。很好看。根据Into the Thin Air改编的。A mountain disaster at the beginning of commercializing the Everest. 看电影前几天我还在和老公说现在爬珠穆朗玛峰的成功率都是100%的。参加一个团队,有人替你背东西,只要天气好,大批大批的人登顶成功。你看王石,听起来怎样怎样,其实交了钱就行。但是几天之后看了电影,觉得王石还是挺厉害的。就算有很多Sherpa,有人替你规划,替你组织,替你训练,你自己还是要有很多很多的drive和strength的。王石还是挺厉害的。不能随便小瞧别人。我错了。

The Scorch Trial就是移动迷宫,看起来是个Teenager电影系列的第二集。和Hunger Games很像,也是个Dystopia故事。虽然是Teenager电影,套路很强,但是就像Ant Man一样,其实还挺好看的。我不反对把第一集或者第三集也看了。
