    Conservatism is the blind and fear-filled worship of dead radicals.


    Oh, we're always all right. You remember that. We happen to other people.

    And I see fire, hollowing souls
    And I see fire, blood in the breeze
    And I hope that you'll remember me...

    Just started 'The Lost City of Z' by David Grann earlier today, and I'm about to dive back into it. I picked it up at the book store last week, as it's my 'ideal' when it comes to non-fiction -- historical true stories of expeditions/ events/ historical unfoldings/ ventures into the unexplored or little-known wild / non-westernized areas. Plus since I've been to the Amazon several times now, it has a personal appeal as well.

    There is one of the first edition cleric books which goes into tons of depth about religions and philosophies and how to weave them into your world, besides another book on ninjas (which was pretty good too in its depth and period references) its my favourite.

    I am reading three books (I need to stop doing that):
    - Brain on fire by S. Cahalan - so so good!
    - Shantaram by G.D.Roberts
    also once for a while I read one chapter of Cosmos by C.Sagan

    But yesterday I downloaded 5 more free books from amazon that I haven't read yet, so soon I'll have a few new things to add into the mix.
    Are you one of the people who get obsessed about the author and start to read everything by them?

    I don't always, but I've definitely done it with several authors.
