What is the last book you read?

Kant's "Prolegomena to Any Future metaphysics."

Name your 3 favorite books and one that was just a big disappointment

Probably: 1. "An American Tragedy," Dreiser 2. "Camera Lucida," Barthes 3. "Collected Poetry and Prose," Stevens I'm not sure I could call this a disappointment because I wasn't expecting much, and I hesitate to phrase it this way in case I come off as biased, but "Atlas Shrugged" was a stunningly bad book. And I'm not talking about the politics at all. I can like artists whose politics I find contemptible, but this book was artistic garbage.

Have you ever re-read a book because it was just so good?


Who is your favorite childhood author?

Arthur Conan Doyle


I want to read with others, talk about what we read, and meet people.
