I finished Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge PHD a couple of weeks ago and now I'm reading John Kabat-Zinn's Wherever You Go There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life.

The unabridged version of The Three Musketeers. Its kickass. Anybody read House of Leaves? I loved that book.

I think I shall read Adam Smith's 'The Wealth of Nations' (mainly because I've borrowed it and owe it back) and read Robert Heinlein's 'The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress' as well. That way I get one book of theory/facts and also a book of fiction so I shouldn't get too confused!
Read The Fountainhead. Quite possibly the best book I've ever read.

Hehehe. My IQ rises when I quote Rothbard, so I suppose it has a flow-through effect. Like capitalism! Lols.

My girlfriend is currently in possession of my copy of The Fountainhead (as I have enough to keep me busy for months). But I should very much like to read it when she's done with it.

You definitely should. Its amazing. It really made me think about the way people function individually, versus in large groups.
Also, check out House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski, for a very interesting, albeit bizarre, read.

I'm looking forward to it. I imagine it would make you think about those things, it's Rand :P
Considering she lived in Soviet Russia and had witnessed the tyranny of collectivism first hand, it was naturally what got her going.
I will try and find this House of Leaves!
I finished Robert Heinlein's 'The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress' the other day. Most enjoyable. Although it was supposed to present a political ideology, it did seem to me to run back and forth a fair bit without really having a definitive position until right towards the last section.
Now reading Meltdown.

I'll have to check it out. House of Leaves should be available at major bookstores, I believe. But, hell, I live in the States, and you live in Aus, so it might not be :P. I just started a book called The Deep Economy. Its by Bill McKibben, and its this guy's theory that if civilization looked beyond economic growth for the sake of growth, and tried instead to establish more localized economies, which were more self-sustaining than most places are now, then the global economic crisis would end. Interesting idea, but I just started it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Ahh, that argument. Who enforces the localisation of economies? i.e. who forces these economies to stay small? Doing so will restrict standard of living from growing due to decreased competition and integration between communities. I dare say that if this were the case, we'd have no GFC. But we'd also have hugely lower standards of living. Privatising the money supply would have the same effect but without the decrease in living standards. That's my theory.
But yeah, tell me how it goes!

I will. I'm sort of starting the book with a bias against his theory, simply because I don't think that human nature and greed will allow growth to stop: the corporate entities that be won't go away simply because people start buying fruit at farmer's markets. We'll see how it goes though.

Finished Meltdown a couple of days ago. Now reading Murray Rothbard's 'America's Great Depression'. He may be the among most right-wing economists ever, so I'm actually a bit embarassed to say I disagree with him on the money supply - he appears to be anti-freedom :P

CD we should have gone to that death metal gig at the Arty tonight instead of masturbating politics (you) and porn (me... and you) on a healthy Saturday night. But I'm about to post in the now playing thread about something that is worth me staying in....

Just finished:
The Stainless Steel Rat by Harry Harrison. Pulpy sci-fi about a space crim who gets busted and signs up with the space cops. Spends time assimilating and battling wits with a criminal always one step ahead of him. Humorous, which I actually mistook for just being whimsical. The sort of book that has exclamation marks in it :-)
The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect by Roger Williams. A computer becomes all-powerful, and molds reality to fit human desires. Its creator, and one of the humans it pays particular attention to, struggle against it. I first read it some years back when it was only an online free read at kuroshin. Brilliant book that I've now been able to read in dead wood format. Still very excellent.

Just finished reading 11, count them, 11 Raymond E Feist books in a row from the Riftwar, Krondor and Serpentwar series. Mad mad mad.

Now i'm onto The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo written by Steig Larsson. 3 or 4 chapters in and its looking like a good book, full of political references, murder and random other intrigue

Heh, that is most unfortunately true!

I just read a short work by Friedrich von Hayek called 'Choice in Currency: A Way to Stop Inflation' which was OK. While I wholeheartedly agree with the message in the book, there wasn't really ANY in-depth analysis, it was too damn short! I also have his 'Monetary Nationalism and International Stability' which will probably be more in-depth. By the way it's opposed to monetary nationalism

I just read Angels & Demons whilst overseas, for no other reason than it being on hand with a fellow traveller. Easily digestible enough story, absolute juvenile, crap, pandering, downright insulting writing style though.

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. Written at the start of the nineties about the end of 80s yuppiedom and consumerism. Patrick Bateman, who works on Wall St, narrates, and he's a bit nutty. Rather obsessed with the material world and brands, struggles to find something in life that isn't bland. Add in some over the top sex scenes and violence in between the brand shopping lists. Very good. I've been liking it even more upon reflection.

Finished Murray Rothbard's 'America's Great Depression' today. I was surprised that it really didn't get into anything about Roosevelt, it mostly focused on Hoover.
I think I'll get working on Rothbard's 'Egalitarianism As A Revolt Against Nature, and Other Essays' now.

I just got a copy of Lenin's "The State and Revolution", from 1934. I'm looking forward to reading it.
