Wrapped up reading The Conquest of Bread a week or so ago. The various ramblings about agriculture are a bit of a slog. The Lovecraft-esque casual use of a slur near the end was disappointing. Next up on the radical leftist list is some Bookchin.

Got half way through I am a Strange Loop, set it down and haven't looked back. Douggie just isn't for me.

Also been plunking my way through Zinn. Just hit the 1900's. Woot.

Haven't managed to read any fiction since I stalled out on War and Peace.
