Topic: How do you choose a book?
Posted: 21 Feb 2020 18:16

I usually get interested in something in history, or in personal improvement, etc. Then I find out what book(s) are considered the "best" in that area by those who live and work in that area. Finally, I find the one best book, and bury myself in it until I just about "wear it."

Topic: Who is your favourite author at the moment?
Posted: 21 Feb 2020 18:06

As for who is my favorite author, that is almost impossible, but Plato, Nietzsche, Shakespeare's Plays and Sonnets, William Butler Yeats, Tennyson, Hemingway, Dostoyevsky, Gogol, Patanjali, Laozi, Frederich Hoelderlin, Schiller, Dante Alighieri, and many, many others. It really depends on what area I am caught up in at the time.

I have been having a lot of fun recently trying to get through as many Agatha Christie books as I can. She is the lady who invented Miss Jane Marple, Hercule Poirot, and Harley Quinn. They always challenge your inner detective.
