      I’m reading “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness” by Rossiter; “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder” by Savage; “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics” by Haidt and “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America” by Coulter. They are helping me understand current events from a whole new perspective.

    Having completed “In the Garden of the Beasts”, I read that the author was greatly helped by referring to Kershaw’s “Hitler Hubrus”, which gives insight not only to Hitler’s life, but the mentality of the German people which allowed the Nazi rise. Also, “Amusing Ourselves to Death”, posits that it’s not 1984 that we have grown into. Rather, it’s Brave New World, with perpetual entertainment and drugs. Relief from these serious works has taken the form of “The Art of Hearing Heartbeats”

    In a Nabokov phase, having just finished Pnin and Lolita moving on to Ada. But a little respite now with one of the Shannara fantasy trilogies.

    I am reading 1491: New Revelations of the Americas B4 Columbus, by Mann. I live on near-ocean land that has been deeded since the 1650s. It’s given me a whole new way to imagine my surroundings.
