I never read/have the patience for it so I'm going to do this super fucking light. Gonna try to go for 12 books/1 book or comic a month. If I do 12 books it'll be more books than I've finished after I turned 18. Dope thread, will update later on if I actually hold on to my goals and keep it going.

1. Permanently Suspended - Anthony Cumia (2/5)
2. Fire and Blood - George RR Martin (3/5)

fire and blood was cool as i got into it. not sure how much foreshadowing or anything is involved but its cool for what it was. a dry history of the targaryen kings of westeros. also i got through it quick cuz i skimmed a bunch cuz it was ZZZZ worthy but word

1. Miracles by C.S. Lewis (4/5)
2. Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis (3.5/5)
3. The Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan (2/5)
4. Maps of Meaning by Jordan Peterson (5/5)



im sure pilgrims progress was fire 3 hundred years ago but that shit was way too blunt and obv in its allusions and allegory. good message but again no new insights and clumsy in deleviry based on more modern literature of its genre

maps of meaning may be one of the best books ive ever read.

Read the first half of Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. I can't imagine it not being good. I give 12 stars out of 14.5 stars. Will never finish it.

You wanted more? I can see why if so. I’m not rating it off of technical ability or prose just personal enjoyment.

I’ll post my updated list later. Currently reading Michael Lewis - The Undoing Project.

I think it took me a third read to really get it, but once you get past the prose it's got some amazing moments. Definitely not the most fun read, the first two times I read it were for different classes

I read the One Piece manga every once in awhile. I bought a history book about Antisemitism by Deborah Lipstadt. I'm also reading one or two pages every week or so of The Optimist's Daughter by Eudora Welty. My book reading life is waning. Thanks 4 motiv@tion.

Meh. I read it a few years ago when I started doing these cause every one sweats it. Machiavelli was a piece of shit and this is just an entirely too long winded version of the prince. 48 laws to being a lying coward. Even apart from disagreeing with the overall message there's way DOPER philosophy books you could spend your time on. The historical references are somewhat entertaining and interesting though.

The prose was just almost TOO dense. I'm also glad that I read maps of meaning prior to this work because I think he articulates a lot of the ideas from this book with a lot more clarity. As far as Christ being the death of God....obv I disagree lol....but its a fascinating concept.
