Current Reading

This blog is primarily for me to blog my responses to books that I'm reading. Sometimes I blog about other stuff too, though.

I'm currently reading Notes on the Death of Culture: Essays on Spectacle and Society by Mario Vargas Llosa.

Next book: The Essential Galileo

A while ago I read snippets of Galileo.  I liked his style, but because I just read it without journaling or discussing I retained far too little.  (See, I can admit the  problems of a "wall of text": Those problems come when you don't follow it up with something to sear it into your memory.)  Now I'm reading an anthology of his writings, edited and translated by Maurice Finocchiaro.  More details to follow.
