Just finished the Nagasaki book. I'm happy I read it but happy it's over too. Up next will probably be "Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget" and then I'm taking a break from depressing books for a while.

I'm at 28 books for the year, which is kinda depressing that my reading rate is going down. Do you guys have goals for yourself with the books you read?


Don't beat yourself up over numbers. Quality > quantity and all that.

I decided to bite the bullet and now I'm reading "A History of Western Philosophy". It's very much the book you'd expect to be written about history in 1945, in my opinion. Hopefully it gets better.
