We might be at Peak TV now, but we've been at Peak Books for at least a century, and if you enjoy reading, it's physically impossible to read every book you want to, much less waste time with ones you don't.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
