Hey that was just one store. I imagine the day's haul would be double or triple that (and inflation has halved the buying power of the dollar since 1990)

A while ago she caught flack for having something like 25 street parking permits.
I remember that. Its funny that with a house in the tens of millions that it lacks a adequate parking and why does she need that many cars?!

Am currently laboring through American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis on the second attempt to beat it.
It's not a well-written book and in places very boring, not to mention controversial, however it does appear on some lists of "100 books you should read b4 you die".
Having said that, the protagonist is into male attire, drops brand names, some of which are still staples here, and in places it reads like it could have been written by one of the regulars in WAYWRN on classic menswear )
For example...

I enjoyed American Psycho but remember Less Than Zero being way better. Glamorama was the one I couldn't finish and then kinda forgot about BE Ellis.

Also, the gruesomeness of AP didn't even phase me back then, as I was just coming off of Exquisite Corpse by Poppy Z. Brite.

My horror show of a book, which I just finished, was Enemy at the Gates. My god, I can't even begin to name some of the things accounted in that book that proves that we are the true monsters which our ancestors have projected into myths.

I'm now reading Quicksilver, by Neal Stepehnson - I haven't been so delighted by a clever historical fiction book since I read Baudalino, by Umberto Eco.

A great book and much recommended reading.I guess most of us knew that being underslept sucks,
but it's pretty shocking how little focus as society we give to the problem of lack of sleep which
impacts your physical, mental health, learning and work.

tl;dr sleep 8h per day

Murray's book is a look at gloomy state of affairs in Western Europe as he calls it "Culture running on empty" and clash with Islam and what it might mean for the continent in the future. The book doesn't make bold statements or predictions but makes an interesting point here and then.

Sowell's book is concrete in its rather harsh criticism of intelligentsia(especially leftwing) but whether you're leaning leftwing or rightwing this is a fantastic read.

Starts off very interesting, this is a 6 tome memoir by Winston Churchill that deals with events leading up to ww2 and ww2 itself.

They’re on the digital pile to read @wojt - thanks for the quick take.
