I've never really read many travel books before but I like Paul Theroux so I thought I would buy all of his books and I'm currently on this one. I would imagine some Brits don't care for this particular book.

Michael Totten also technically writes "travel" books but his are different. This is one of my favorites.

The amount of reading material for school this semester qualifies as "college rape" (one 200/500-page book per weekday).
Besides that, today in the subway (my "leisure" reading time) I've started Les Mots et les Choses by Foucault (in French and Spanish is "The Words and the Things", in English I believe it's The Order of Things).MBTI: INTP (though I'm PINT-sized) * Ti = Ne > Fi > Ni > Si > Te = Se >>> Fe

I finished A Midsummer Night's Dream today and I now know I am in a way that Old Nedar's Helena.
East of Eden was very recently begun on that closing. There is good promise there it would so far seem.

Just finished The Trap by Sir James Goldsmith. Written almost 25 years ago, it was so predictive of our world today.
Well worth the read, with very insightful words on topics ranging from globalization, factory farming, to nuclear power.
Sir James was a billionaire and a politican, among other things. Various YouTubes are available from him as well. Dead almost 20 years, almost like a voice from the grave....Originally Posted by Archilochus

Read This Side of Paradise as I begin a venture into the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald. I also have a short story collection of his thanks to the true wonder that is a library card.Let thought and reasoning be your guide, it certainly is mine!
Always forward, never back!
I look to the day and smile. Because I know that the worse days are behind me and that when the worst does come, it'll be the end for me. So no point in not smiling at today, right?

Dune, by Frank Herbert.
Which, I have learned, is just as great as everyone says it is. It's a classic for a reason.Originally Posted by Nørrsken impersonating EJCC
