Breaking the Maya Code is excellent.
Fascinating subject when you realize the Maya are still there. In fact, the entire immigration to North America is an intriguing topic

Yeah - interesting combination of epigraphy, cold war idiocy, and misguided cultural beliefs.

Yep... the Maya collapse

1) Wasn't really a collapse as much as a long term period of rolling state failure and migration

2) Doesn't appear to have involved a large scale population collapse, but merely a collapse of the political/religious/state structures. The Maya didn't disappear - their model of kingship and large cities just faded back into small communities.

Sadly, they're no longer made. Discontinued for the American market in 1981, European market in 2009, and Japanese market in 2012. The Japanese and Europeans love them for trout.

Alaska by James Michener. When I started it my Kindle said it was 27 hours long. Not sure how they determine that number, but my damn Kindle feels thicker and heavier.
