I don't think you need to apologize for that.

Post Re: What are you currently reading?
Hello everyone. New to this site and this is my first post.
I am a fan of dystopian novels and I am currently reading "We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin,
it's basically a mixture of Huxley (Brave New World) and Orwell (1984), both of which used "We" as inspiration for their respective novels.

Glad to see somebody reading "We". A novel that deserves to be better known.

I'm reading "The Second World War" by Antony Beevor. Amusingly, my father's unit gets a mention: "...although inexperienced and ill disciplined to a point which left British officers almost speechless with rage (it) proved to be a collection of formidable fighters".

Currently I am reading Ulysses by James Joyce. For the first time in my whole life the book makes sense to me. I think I miss many of the puns and connections but I am totally enjoying the book just as a great story. I look forward to finding out what will happen next. Joyce is a great writer and so very funny.

I think you've discovered the secret of reading Ulysses: It IS a great story and everything else is secondary.

Post Re: What are you currently reading?
Just finished reading "Alexander Hamilton" by Ron Chernow. Yes, that is the book the Broadway musical "Hamilton" is based on. Currently about 2/3 of the way through "The Eighth Science Fiction Megapack," a collection of short stories and novellas. Just started "The Reason for God" by Timothy Keller. Next on my list: "Walden" by Henry Davis Thoreau, and "Miracle at Philadelphia," by Catherine Drinker Bowen, about the Constitutional Convention of 1787. I have been meanng to read these last two for years, just never got around to it.

I'd forgotten that Stephen King's Under The Dome is way better than the TV show :)

Post Re: What are you currently reading?
I just finished Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance. The author grew up in the Appalachian culture in a town near me, then got into the Marines and from there graduated from Yale law school. So he has been a part of quite a few American sub-cultures and has interesting things to say about all of them.

Currently reading The Terror Years: From al-Qaeda to the Islamic State by Lawrence Wright. This is a collection of some of his magazine articles that have been updated, quite good...
