Which translation do you recommend?

Ficciones by Borges

i'm writing it in turkish and i don't recommend reading translation tbqh.
you'd better learn turkish.

By smarter if you mean be able to profess information faster compared to the rest of the population given no constant background knowledge, no books can help you do that.

If you want to seem smart, try philosophy.

Shakespeare

>>7653072
infinite jest
>>
After reading your post? Any high school educational book

You should read "On Reading and Book" by Schopenhauer.

Smarter or more learned?

If the former, try some of these:

Gödel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter
The Road to Reality by Roger Penrose
Euclid's Elements
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Oh, and throw in the Greeks while you're at it, why don't you - go grab some Plato and Aristotle and become learned simultaneously.
