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.

Finished Zinn, and Bookchin's The Next Revolution.

Liked both, will probably read them again at some point. Zinn suffers a bit from being too quick of a survey. The Next Revolution has really come into it's own in light of the decentralized push of block chains and git.

I've started some new stuff, but will leave that for the next book thread.
