    Im reading a book about how liberal elites are effecting the removal of freedoms, freedom of speech, civil liberties by promoting the division of society through woke conformity. Economically on the left but culturally on the right. Fascinating! Stylish writing and funny aswell. On the closure of media into woke conformity:
    ‘ When you read a novel you want to sail down the Congo River to meet Captain Kurtz, not Kamala Harris…’😁

    Brian Patrick Bolger ‘ Coronavirus and the Strange Death of Truth’

    When it comes to zombie novels, most are corny, lame and predictable. Its pretty rare to find a good one, so I can highly recommend the "Surviving the Dead" Series by James Cook. Reading book 9 now.

    i also like to read many books in pdf format. From time to time I transform paper books into pdf with helping camera pdf scanner and extract any text from scanned documents with OCR App also can easily process pictures with color & perspective correction.

    I like ancient philosophy and Roman law. I recently found a cool overview of the aphorisms https://freebooksummary.com/category...ry-of-the-cave of the ancient philosophers. I became interested to learn about the duality of words and the Greek philosophers talk about it. The word death meant the cessation of bodily existence, but the Stoics believed in the soul and the eclipse of the mind.

    There's a theme here.
    The psychedelic explorers guide is a great book. How's the other one so far? Worth a read?

    Got Michael Connelly, "Fair Warning", just sitting there.

    Bought it for Jury Duty, then managed to get that postponed for 6 months.

    I doubt I will end up sitting on a jury.
