What book are you reading? Part 20


Recommended Posts

i bought kitchen confidential a couple years ago and even though its on my list, i have a few other books i want to read before i get to that...but a lot of people in this thread have suggested it, so i would go with that.

 

i loaned it to a friend to read before i started in, and they said i wouldnt get it since ive never suffered myself to work in the food industry (way i see it, once you get in you dont get out. and i dont like cooking food/washing dishes THAT much)

 

also i went to my local barnes and noble (no, not with intentions of supporting them with my money, with intentions of walking out with a copy of 20,000 leagues under the sea) and they didnt have a single unabridged copy. i even asked. nonsense.

 

im hitting the road monday and i packed howard zinns peoples history, tolkeins Silmarillion and a book about knots.

Good thing you clarified that you weren't going to pay for that book.

 

A thread all about reading books would definitely crucify you for buying a book.

Why the fuck would you buy a book from barnes and noble instead of a bookstore in the first place? Thats like walking past the guy busting his ass to make a living making badass food in his foodtruck on the way into mcdonalds. To pay more for the same product. :rolleyes:

i dont really buy books from big book stores either...i just get them at the public library book sales or thrift stores...most are fairly new condition and cost anywhere from $1.50 to $2.00.

 

i did get 2 books from borders a few years ago, but thats cause my ex got me a gift card from there.

with the crossing--have you read all the pretty horses already? it will make a big difference in your perception of it.

 

i don't know that its necessary, but might be.

Just picked up Philosophy of Physics: Space and Time by Timothy Maudlin. Excited to get into it over the next few weeks, always been a fan of that sect of contemporary philosophy.

 

In honor of Halloween, I implore people to look up Algernon Blackwood, I prefer his short stories to the novels but most of his stuff can be found online for free on public record-type sites.
