I actually had to listen to the Tao Te Ching because there isn't any PDFs to DL but the narranator was the best I've heard , prob due to him studying Zen for 15 years
But I'm gonna listen to it a couple more times

My goal is to read 24 books per year. If I stay off social media I can read about 100.

over the last week:



best book i've read from 2017. no competition, tbh. i loved this book. it's about a russian dude whose on house arrest in some big famous russian hotel, next to the kremlin. there's not much of a big narrative arc in the story. it's more like short stories within that context. but it was so good.



this was cooler in concept than in actually reading. a graphic novel, where every page is the same corner of a house. except it's over the course of thousands of years. it's interesting to think about, but not something i'd ever return to.



cool psychedelic visuals, as expected from jesse jacobs. the story was kinda meh, though. not as good as his previous work, imo.



pretty great pulp western. didn't realize it was a true story, until the epilogue mentioned it, lol. worthwhile light read.



pretty fascinating and terrifying, lol. random fact: between 2011 and 2013, china produced and used more concrete than america did in the 20th century. damn. the results of the book make you feel pretty pessimistic about the future, so reader beware.



not bad pulp detective novella. not something i'll remember by next year, but a nice light read. *shrugs



pretty good stories by joe kelly. a fun read, but i wish the narratives were longer. the standalone chapters are fun but forgettable. i guess i was expecting more, and am undervaluing it, because of that.



read this last night, because my brother's acting in a performance of it this weekend. seeing the show tonight. this was so good, as most of moliere's works are. some laugh-out-loud moments, even though it's centuries old. great plotting. highly recommended for people that read plays.

currently:



jesus, this is hard to follow. jim woodring had hallucinations in his childhood, and bases a lot of these stories on those hallucinations, as well as his dreams, verbatim. they're super hard to understand or make sense of. but pretty fucking cool, regardless. halfway through right now.



starting this in four minutes, when my lunch break starts. my friend said it was real good. that "everyone should read it". so looking forward to it. happy that it's a short read. when i put it on hold at the library, i thought it was going to be some massive book, i think because of the title, subject, and hype.

i go to the library almost every day. it's on the way home from work, so i just swoop in quickly and grab the shit i have on hold. tonight, i'll be picking up fredrik backman's beartown and ray dalio's principles. all the books i listed above came from the library (except for the moliere, which came from a theatre library on the other side of town).

but i also buy a lot of books too. typically stuff i can't get from the library.

i'm lucky. my province has a really good library system. you can get items from any library in the province shipped to the library closest to you. according to municipal affairs, there's about 22 million items in that library system.

it'd be worth looking up. there are so many rare or OOP items that my city's library doesn't have, but some library elsewhere in the province has it, and i'm able to get it. particularly academic books. my local public library doesn't have a lot of academic works, but, since it can borrow from university libraries, i can still get those works through my public library.

Listened to some of the power of now last nite, I wanted to stab my ear drums out with a fork. This guy basically rehashed old teachings. I think the same can be said about law of attraction , which I have yet to read/hear. These authors are making a cash grab from plagiarism

i can't stop thinking about the stories in that frank book. it's weird. i didn't understand them, but something about them sticks with you. like a dream, i guess. plus, it doesn't hurt that the visuals are so good.

jt, i know you're a cormac fan. you might like this new book:



i haven't read it yet (i'm in the hold line at the library for it), but the reviews are pretty hype, and it seems to be a cormac mccarthy type of book.

Y'all really have to listen to the Tao Te Ching , I play it 2x a day on head phones at work , I really love this book. Also I started listening to this other Tao explained by Alan watts it sounds like by his voice. I like Alan watts a lot , but I disagree with him on that the ego is a positive aspect as he always states
