Never could get through him. I think I finish one book for ever ten I start. Usaully reading five to ten books at a time. Books laying all over the place. Open and face down. or with book marks. Reading Lolita In Tehran, interesting book by Iranian professor living under one of the most repressive regimes against women in the world during the nineties. She is now teaching at Harvard. She started a book club in her home for her students. A lot of woman to woman things over my head but I liked her description Lotita's seducer as a "solipsizer of women" half way through it but had to take it back to library. "Madame Blavatsky's Baboon" about the charlatans who brought the new age movement to America, funny I still think Krismanurti makes a lot of sense no matter what his origins. "On Bullshit", a tiny little book by Princeton professor. And a couple more. I know I am welcome. Be back when I can. This place here is kind of an internship for me.
