    Still on Pepys' diary. Over three years in and I feel like beginning it again due to having now familiarized myself with the many in his life.

    Zoinks!

    I have more Eco, Baudolino a historical fiction (Medieval Europe: go figure) and T. S. Eliot.

    The annotations for The Waste Land are roughly ten times the length of the poem itself. So it goes.

    A book that I often listen to is "Logically Fallacious: The Ultimate Collection of Over 300 Logical Fallacies" by Bo Bennett. It helps to improve your reasoning ability & it keeps my internal fallacy detector nice & sharp.

    very cool
    not as cool as Bellum Iugurthinum, but still a good read.

    For clarification, just over three years has passed in the diary 1659/63, not me reading it over a three year period. Reading for about 5 months now. There's over a million words.

    Aha, 'zoinks' retracted.

    After a year, today I borrowed again Edmund Wilson's diaries from the library. I still don't know whether I like it or not. Somehow, I keep going back to it.

    He was a jewish doctor who survived horrors of WWII and Auschwitz. He did find meaning and used his experiences to help others.

    Eastern Europe in the mid-twentieth century was a version of hell so ghastly that it's unimaginable today. So many fell or were marched off and vanished amid total war.

    Будет интересно слушать твое мнение о Хаджи-Мурате. Да скажи мне после того, как ты прочитала!

    I've got a couple things I'd put on the back-burner, but I'm thinking I could use something Russian about now. I still have very little in that department, specially old Tolstoy.
