Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.
June 8, 1949: George Orwell's dystopian classic, Nineteen Eight-Four, was published 68 years ago today. The popularity of the book led to our adoption of the term "Big Brother" as shorthand for a surveillance state.
Harry Potter's series is a turn-off for men but turn-on for women?
Bible is a turn-off? Sure.
There is a list of books that I would say a total turn-off. Twilight, 50 Shades, The Secret, Deepak Chopra, are all on the turn-off list for all gender.
It is harder than I thought to name four favourite books. If I read have to, I would imagine myself stuck in an airport with a delay flight, and which 4 books would help me survive.
Decided to dive right into this after enjoying god Is Not Great. Fascinating so far.
In fact, I think his reading of this is far better than the previous book. Since this is a more personal piece, he takes his time. He doesn't read nearly as quick, avoiding that "rushed" tone. I really wished god Is Not Great was read in the same manner since I'm sure that I missed a bunch of stuff.
Anyway, I'm enjoying Hitch-22 right now. I think that was my point. Did I have a point? What are points? Who are you and why are you eyeing my wine collection?!?!
