the problem with your argument is that when you read 5 books ayear you kinda want to know that it is worth your time

It was pretty good, but a bit fragmented in terms of an actual clear timeline. This is my first foray into history, really, but Russia shows a return to type..

Oh, I got a trial subscription to audiobooks* and got two free books. I listened to The Girl on The Train - jfc that was shit - and am starting to listen to A Scanner Darkly, which is a book I wanted to read after reading Ubik. This one is narrated by Paul? Giamatti so is very good so far.

*Will not actually subscribe as I like reading. Noticed the trial offer when buying a Kindle book. As a tangent, I found out many years ago that a related-forum-stalwart was an Ayn Rand objectivist disciple who never read a book and only listened to audiobooks. Homeschooled guy; very smart but wow I could never understand what motivated him in his beliefs...especially because he was living off welfare and had done so since 'school' finished.
That's a good start. My grandmother was a librarian. My mother was a librarian. Her sister is a librarian. I had no chance from birth.

Don't forget to get some books about WWII from the Russian perspective.
The Siege of Stalingrad was epic, and Beevor did a book just about that.

I've got the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich on my kindle, it's on this years to read list though probably won't be read for a while. After W&P I'm going to go for something light that doesn't need a character list or constantly flicking back to earlier chapters.

I'm going through a very dry bit of the book, it's taken me 2 days to read 20 pages

I am pretty convinced of the existence of a Q like document, maybe along the lines of the Gospel of Thomas, preceding all the shits. I also think the Diadache, or a predecessor, makes sense as one of the earliest writings.

I think Paul sucks. I think James and the other Apostles thought Paul Sucked Big Donkey Balls.

What the hell is this smiley? Why do we have it?






Not a Pisces, but Aquarians can drink on saturday night too = p

I had a boss who was always telling me he wanted a report but he "didn't want War And Peace". So I read it, so I knew what he didn't want.

But I'm buggered if I can remember much other than the battle scenes and that it ends with
Spoiler
a May-September wedding.
