Deer and the Cauldron
Possibly starting Vanity Fair

I read one fictional book and one non fiction. For the non fiction one, I take notes to understand it better.
Currently reading:
>Non-fiction: Nichomachean ethics
>Fiction: Atlas Shrugged

Day of the locust

The hidden life of trees

A bunch of papers on dromaeosaur anatomy and the new Utahraptor.

I have just finished The Brothers Karamazov and am stuck between reading one of the following followed by the others:

> Les Miserables - Hugo
> Crime and Punishment - Dostoyevsky
> The Idiot - Dostoyevsky

Not sure which to read next, I'm leaning more towards The Idiot but would welcome any advise

fuck off skitzo-pedo-poster of /brit/

U.S.A trilogy by Dos Passos, written when he still believed in Socialism.

Bleeding Edge. Might also read some short stories now and then to spice things up.

do yourself a favor and stop reading fiction

Who the hell reads Karamazov before Crime and Punishment?
I recommend you take a break from Fyodor.
Don't jump into Les Miserables either, unless you are a vicarious-masochist who loves sorrow and pain. It really is a depressing read - for the most part. Yes, it is incredible, but I would recommend something lighter. Don't sink too deep in the slough. Read "Three Men in a Boat" by Jerome K. Jerome or something.

I'm taking a break from non-fiction I've only ever read non-fiction bar a few books so I'm giving fiction a bigger try now

Demons by Dostoevsky

the protocols of the learned elders of zion
started reading it because the jew at my uni was going on about how its the funniest conpiracy book ever
and reading is a little hard because of how accurate it is and how things have progressed exactly how the book illustrated they would since its publishing in 1909

Notes from the Underground.

I had already read it many years ago, but I figured I should give it a second reading now that I can actually understand literature. Turns out, it was a great idea. It's been a very rewarding reading.

The anecdote where the writer is hellbent on getting “revenge” by bumping into the officer in the street cracked me up

The count of Montecristo
Actually right now I'm to sick for reading

Watership Down!

IRC desu

Great Expectations. I'm about 1/4 in and it's honestly quite mediocre.

>new Utahraptor

Almost done with Pride and Prejudice, thinking of reading more Austen after I finish this. Emma? Sense and Sensibility? Mansfield Park?

It was a far stockier animal than we previously thought. Almost like a twenty foot long hyena. The 'wings' are abnormally short for a raptor, this might've been due to its large size, if that's true, this effects the way other large raptors will be reconstructed from this point on.

It's absolutely fascinating.

Why don't you fuck off this board?

Notes was my first Dostoevsky, I wasn't sure I was supposed to find it so funny but I don't think I've ever laughed while reading a book as much as I did while reading that
pic related makes it 100x more funny

How are you liking Pride? I read it in high school and I didn't like it too much. I can't remember much but I just remember thinking 70% of it felt like boring filler and the rest was decent.
But I wasn't super into literature back then so maybe my thoughts are misguided

do everyone a favor and stop posting.

>My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
Halfway through I'm kinda underwhelmed because I expected a lot of this book because it was hyped and praised so much. It's still a good book and I'm enjoying it; would recommend.

The heart is a lonely hunter (sounds gay I know)

sounds like your Expectations were too Great ;))

Not the user that you replied to, but I read The Idiot first, then The Brothers Karamazov, and then Crime and Punishment, so whatever. The Idiot was actually my favorite of the three.


It’s basically /r9k/: the book

hows datc

Still getting through the Veeky Forums starter pack
I'm currently on Fahrenheit 451 and will most likely read A Picture of Dorian Gray next
I've already read The Great Gatsby, A Clockwork Orange and Lord of the Flies though so I'm doing alright.

220 pages into The Strange Death of Europe

why are you memeing yourself like that? start with the greeks ffs

Can't decide if I wanna read that or not, any good? What's it actually about?

I don't really care that much for philosophy if I'm honest.
I have read Herodotus and Thucydides if that counts but that was for my History A-level

Euripides and Berserk


finished one of the greatest works of all time and started another one

it seems like i'm only satisfied with the very best; i've tried reading lesser works recommended for beginners and i appreciate them, but they bore me with their lack of ambition - only the absolute peak is engaging and good enough to be worth reading

About halfway through. It's aight so far.

Stirners Critics


I havent read any Cossery, would you recommend him?

Read Crime and Punishment.

Nice. I just bought it a couple days ago.

Currently I've been reading short stories by H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Fydor Dostoevsky.
I kind of want to start reading The Odyssey or some Shakespeare plays soon, though.

The Screwtape Letters

Alri /brit/ yank

don't read lovecraft, poe, and dostoevsky at the same time.

you're setting yourself up for wrinkles and eyes slightly too wide.

make sure to keep something of society in your circulation when you tackle things like this. stay varied.

Good work, keep going.

Susannah a best.
On a different note, I never would've thought a Wild West version of Arthurian England would work so well.

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Narcissus and Goldmund. My terrible hot take on it -- being a little less than a third through -- is that it's "The Chad Virgin and the Giga Chad". I'm basically at the part where Goldmund meets the knight and his two daughters, and some of these scenes with Lydia are just...a bit much.

Crisp (ed.), "How Should One Live?: Essays on the Virtues"
Fisher, "Metaethics: An Introduction"
Keown, "Buddhism: A Very Short Introduction"
Sandberg, "French for Reading"
Tatarkiewicz, "Historia filozofii"
SEP article on Aristotle's ethics

also rereading parts of
Culdasa, "The Mind Illuminated"
Hursthouse, "On Virtue Ethics"

Just finished The Fire Next Time. It was an enjoyable read.

Thoughts on Foltz? He's a professor at my uni I'm debating if I should take one of his courses.

What do you think of The mind illuminated so far?

The dictators handbook

I've read mindfulness in plain English before, it was shorter, still very good. Mind illuminated is more deliberate, it's a step by step guide. Does good job explaining concepts like peripheral awareness and attention, sometimes on other contexts like on a guided meditation somebody says "maintain awareness", you don't exactly know what he means if you haven't learned it somewhere else already. The book is as secular as it gets. So far I'm only 20% in and I've just recently started doing mindfulness.

Non-Fiction: pic related
Fiction: Moby Dick

the book was a part of a series. all of the books were really concise and informative. I'd say go for it if he's teaching something you're interested in.

SPQR (how to make Roman history sound boring)
The death of ivan ilych

honestly not in the mood to read at all. I usually get at least 50 pages in a day but sometimes you just wanna watch several hours of anime and feel like shit instead.
