“I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.”
-- Henry Miller

Gave up on this because San Francisco people are insufferable as shit. Waaah waaaaah our city is changing waaaah waaaah. There's no real portrait of the city as it is now because it can all be waved off casually with "its just rich tech people". Only read if you want to see other people's onanism to when they were cool.



Now im read8nf "Diamond Hill" by Kit Fan. Very good. Not entirely sure i know what its about but it is very good.

I finally finished Wheel of Time...
It's hard for me to remember a point in my life when I wasn't reading Wheel of Time, pretty sure I still had my whole life ahead of me when I started it.
Anyways, now I'm reading "The Last Watch" by J.S. Dewes.

That sounds interesting.

I'm reading The Map That Changed The World, by Simon Winchester:

I find it fascinating how different we look at the world compared to our ancestors.

Stampede is pretty good. And it;s like 250 pages. Worth a library checkout.

All of Winchester's work is good, methinks.
 

suited?

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.
Both are excellent. I've only read one of Douglas Murray's books (the one you posted here), but have read almost all of Sowell's books. He did a spinoff of Intellectuals and Society that expands the section on race - "Intellectuals and Race."

Reading this right now. It’s about how art, literature, and philosophy was shaped by World War II and especially the Cold War.

Seneca's "Letters on Ethics." Timeless wisdom from a Stoic. Abridged versions are available containing perhaps 25 letters. Look for an edition that has all 120+.
