Back to books, anarchist or otherwise.

I'm actually interested in which books people are reading at the moment. One good thing about the lock-down has been having time to get stuck into some good books. Which Patrick O'Brian are you reading Vape8ion? I read Master and Commander a few years ago, good book. Patrick O'Brian also translated some of Simone de Beauvoir's work, more good stuff. I have just finished; Into the Silence, The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest, which is a really excellent tome (if you're interested in that sort of thing). Now I've just started; War, Ice and Piracy by Samuel Gurney Cresswell, which is also interesting. After that I plan to read anything by Flann O'Brien or Dervla Murphy that I might not have read yet. They are both good authors and funny too. I particularly liked The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien, which I was also fortunate enough to see as a play. This is an excellent time to get stuck into good books. I like political books too and was recently given The Madness of Crowds by Douglas Murray which is truly dreadful. It's so bad that unusually for me, I don't intend finishing it. He writes for The Spectator which probably tells you all you need to know about him.

This thread has nothing with books.
Criminals don't like police, you know.

The answer to 1984 is 1973 § Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.

ACAB is a way of highlighting that the problem lies with the institution, not the individual. So yes, all cops are bastards, even your cousin, uncle, whatever.

Anyways, back to the topic of books. Got a new one in the mail today about mindfulness and compassion that someone recommended me. I'm far better at buying books than actually reading them.
