Books

Here are some books that I've been reading. Lately I've been reading historical books and some of the classics. I figure there's thousands of books out there so I might as well read some tried and true excellent books!

I started this log on February 12, 2019.

Current Books

East Of Eden - John Steinbeck
I'm a few chapters into this one and so far it seems like it's about two families from California in the turn of the 20th century. This is the sort of book that I usually don't like, but this is good.

Books I've Quit in 2019

Orthodoxy - G.K. Chesterton

Too wordy! I should have known that a guy who wrote (dictated?) this many books might have a lot to say. However, much like Frank Zappa, he didn't seem to know when to get rid of stuff. This book was like word spew. It could have been more interesting if it was more concise. It was too dense and repetitive for me.
