Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

"The Shaolin Monastery" By Meir Shahar

pretty good read. He's translated a lot of documents and many of the stele at the site
and come up with a fairly accurate portrayal of what the Shaolin monastery is and historically how it has functioned since Tang dynasty.

It's a good read for any martial arts enthusiast.
Coconuts. Bananas. Mangos. Rice. Beans. Water. It's good.

Seriously, I am reading JAMA, a book about how to become a father and when I have time a book on iterative software development.

Try his "drawing of the dark" an awesome fantasy about...beer, and "the anubis gates"...they all follow sort of a loose cosmology of how magic works in his multiverse.

I just finished Deep Survival by Laurence Gonzales, highly recommend it.

Before that I read an outstanding book, Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely
