Reading Sorrows of Young Werther and I find myself identifying very strongly with the protagonist.

Reading God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens mostly to see what the fuss was all about. To me, they are little more than above-average blog posts in terms of quality and depth-among secularists Richard Carrier provides better arguments while Paine and Ingersoll are more readable.

Read an excerpt for Comparative Politics and it was absolutely fantastic. I wonder what Simfan thinks of it.

Nastume Soseki. Umeji Sasaki is the translator. (Botchan's an absolute delight. If you like it maybe also try Wagahai wa neko de aru.)

Excuse me for my gross error. I do hope to read some more East Asian literature over the next few months.

Still a better sociopolitical work than Atlas Shrugged.
