What book/s are you currently reading?
I recently finished The Zen and Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Next up comes A Theory of Monads, a lovely first edition from 1922 on Liebniz's theory of monadology. I think monads are but part of philosophy is knowing what's and why so you can know what's not .
things they carried is a good book imo and i will stand with it in the face of annoying tv tropes users who dislike it
"O’Brien has expressed surprise at how the book has become a staple in middle schools and high schools, stating that he "certainly hadn’t imagined fourteen year-old kids and eighteen year-olds and those even in their early twenties reading the book and bringing such fervor to it, which comes from their own lives, really. The book is applied to a bad childhood or a broken home, and these are the things they're carrying. And in a way, it's extremely flattering, and other times, it can be depressing."
"In 2014, the book was included in Amazon.com's list of 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime and credited as the inspiration for a National Veterans Art Museum exhibit."
Doesn't sound like it needs any bodyguards but I'm sure it appreciates the sentiment
The writing was p idiosyncratic all the way through, appropriately. i kind of don't associate it with all the other books I've been planning to read but hey it got me reading again, so that's a step.
