  • Anyone still read books?

    My reading goes in spells...

    Just started 'The Idiot' by Dostoyevsky. Some really brilliant character development in the first few pages.

    Last year I read 'Crime and Punishment', maybe one of the best novels ever writen.

    ^Awesome! I do read books.. and not on an app or a kindle. I like holding a book in my hands.
    I stayed up until 4:30 am reading an amazing book last night. I also go in spells depending on my schedule. The last three books I read.

    A Good Wife, Escaping the Life I never Chose, A Memoir, Samra Zafar/Meg Masters.. A Pakistani girl of 17 marries a Canadian man ten years older and moves to Canada to a terrible life of abuse. The ending is beautiful.

    The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***, Mark Manson

    Educated, A Memoir, Tara Westover

        I got two kindles, one of the ancient ones with the foward/back and side buttons.
        And a slightly newer 'paperwhite' that has back-light and touch screen, which failed on me. After about a month trying to persuade it, finally got it to reset. Still it sucks compared to the ancient original model. (Lighter in the hand)

          Reading two at the moment…….

          Red Skin, White Masks: Rejecting the Colonial Politics of Recognition: https://muse.jhu.edu/article/588016/summary

          And

          Boneyard.

          It’s a story told from some poor soul who lives on some Thai woman’s property today who used to as a young person creep from backyard to backyard in his neighborhood growing up peaking in on young girls and how he felt during those visits.

              Very interesting Landy, instead reading work which encourages critical thinking, you envelop yourself with a masterpiece of intersectionality and progressive indoctrination.
              Apparently being a SJW requires some serious study...

                Heh, yeah and I like the theme where you have the protagonist in one of his cherished books being a peeping Tom.

                Now what to be made of that!

                      Just started this one.

                      Be interested to get feedback from Dr. Earl on this subject!



                      One reviewer had this to say

                      "Reefer Madness in the Age of the New Jim Crow"

                      But another reviewer had the following to say: "When Mother Jones Magazine and The New Yorker support an anti-pot book, we should pay attention. Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, knows how to research and report. The statistics tell the story we know but don’t want to believe. The last time I saw the valedictorian of my HS class, he was smoking a joint and pumping gas for a living."

                        ^
                        Well, finished it and the author went into critical analysis that really does make the case that psychosis can be brought about from smoking Pot.

                        Depending the the THC levels etc.

                            I still read books both fiction and predominantly non fiction as in engineering books and others. the last fiction book i read was 1984 and before that a homage to Catalonia. A good non fiction book I would recommend is Brain Sex. Not as well know as women are from venus men are from mars but IMO a much better book that gets far less publicity due to its lack of PC.
