Who /lit/ here? What books have you been reading? I've been reading the hobbit lately. Amazing book. Wagecucks don't have time to read.
I liked blood meridian
What did robots think?
Pic related not so much
I recently read a book called the Crisis of Democracy, its really interesting because it basically the ideology of an organization called the Trilateral Commision whivh seeks to undermine the foundations of democracy. It was written by people from G7 countries who later became influential politicians. several cabinet members from the Nixon, Carter, and Reagan.
Because democracy came to become available to all people, not just one demographic, with the right of women and minorities to vote came the issue of answer to a wider spectrum of voters that could not be as easily consoled. This would represent a problem for democracy because too much input is an issue. I really recommend it.
Reading a fuckload right now.
>Child Abuse in Freud's Vienna
>Up to Leviticus in the KJB
>The Embarrassment of Riches
>I Am Providence (Unabridged)
Yeah, Hemmingway is a bad Cormac McCarthy honestly.
On that last one, what's your fav. Lovecraft story?
Has to be The Thing on the Doorstep or Through the Gates of the Silver Key for me.
Never read Lovecraft
What's your recommendation
How could you get over the whore part
Fiestas sound fun as fuck though
Pickman's Model. Solid introduction to both types of Lovecraft stories - the universe is out to get you and human degradation is even scarier than a hostile universe.
I unironically liked Fate/Apoc. Just when you think it can't be more "fuck yeah" it escalates. Where are you up to?
>tfw reading watership down as comfy escapism between more serious reading
Highly recommended to any robots looking for a comfy book. It has some pretty intense feels but it's basically 450 pages of getting comfy in forts with chill rabbit friends.
I just finished the lotr trilogy. Very good, indeed. I had forgotten all about Saruman's exploitation of the Shire at the end of the book. It was kind of odd to place it at the end of the novel, after the defeat of Sauron, but I enjoyed that part of the book nonetheless.
Right now, I'm reading Shakespeare's The Tempest, because I heard that the main character, Prospero, is a wizard. I was not disappointed. I'm reading it out of a giant compendium of all of Shakespeare's works. There are these weird annotations that make no fucking sense and constantly refer to some collection of essays written by ?????
I like literature but I don't read because it's near impossible to find a good book between all the over rated shit and the pretentious bullshit. It's harder than finding good films.
I mean, the Hobbit? Really? You give NEETs a bad name. That's some high school tier shit.
>I like literature but I don't read
Do you even realize how stupid you sound? It's very clear that you dislike "over rated and pretentious bullshit" because you don't understand it. Reading The Hobbit is better than thinking that you're above reading.
I don't read but I used to. I stopped because I can't find good shit to read. Your argument is as shitty as your taste, too. I've got perfect reading comprehension.
You don't even need to be too intelligent to understand The Hobbit. A 14 years old kid can understand it perfectly.
Maybe you're just shitty at finding things to read. The fact that you can't find anything interesting out of the thousands of years of written text tells me that you don't like to read. Also you dislike pretentious books but you think that a good work of literature has to be hard to understand?
Not hard to understand but I'm not getting entertained by something that doesn't make me put my brain to use. It's like watching a Captain America movie.
Besides, that's exactly my point. There's million of books so even if 10% of them were worth reading (a huge overestimation) I'd come across 90% of millions of books worth shit; and those also happen to be the most famous ones.
>Not hard to understand but I'm not getting entertained by something that doesn't make me put my brain to use. It's like watching a Captain America movie.
I'm too smart to enjoy literature, that's why I come to r9k instead. Wagecuck threads require me to use my brain.
I guess that's a good point, but I think your criticism of the OP is uncalled for. Autists are into escapism, which the fantasy genre is very good at. Even though OP is reading The Hobbit now, it might lead him to more difficult books in the future. Remember book fairs and the times when your mom would let you get one book at Barnes and Noble and it was never enough? I can't crush that happiness in an anon just because the book he's reading isn't patrician enough.
OP here Im just reading for the sake of entertaining myself and childhood nostalgia. Fuck that dude though I just love reading fantasy and sci-fi. Getting into some Lovecraft too as well.
Reading Blood Meridian currently, loving it so far
>tfw the Judge gives his speech about war
knowing that man existed irl without McCarthy even having to exaggerate his features gives me chills
dude FUCK democracy
Seriously, you're telling me you're actually okay with Chad, Stacy, Tyrone, and the other normies having any influence in policy-making?
I thought you were better than this, robots. Here, I suggest you read this http://www.thedarkenlightenment.com/moldbugs-open-letter/
Sorry for slow reply, anon, work a shit
Anyway, i'm only into the first volume because i'm trying to get versed in everything type moon. One of my friends called me a secondary because I've only played Fate/Extra and watched all the Ufotable TM anime.
Fate Apoc is seeming pretty badass so far, though. Semiramis is my favorite
