Well I have always been interested in the existentialists and this is a great primer on the subject. Part discussion on the underlying philosophy of existentialism part history of the movement focussing on both the French and the German schools. What came across to me was how flawed these philosophers were; volatile, sensitive, friendships breaking and reforming, and in one case associating with Nazi‘s. But they lived an examined life.

Velvetfur That book is on my TBR, having heard of it on here! I love existentialism, and this is a great review which gives me a really good idea of what this book is like - thank you! 4mo

So I found a copy of this out of print book! I absolutely love road trip books and travel memoirs.
This is Simone de Beauvoir‘s “diary” from her four month US trip in 1947.

Since I have no plans for an upcoming road trip I‘m going to virtually travel across the US (and back in time)

An interesting look at Satre and Simone de Beauvoir. With an insight into some of Camus and Heidegger.
Sarah Bakewell makes some complex philosophy far more accessible.
Beauvoir is frequently referred to in glowing terms. Personally, I much prefer the writing of Camus, but it's interesting reading a different perspective.

I love reading about historical moments like this. I am really enjoying this book and reading through at a leisurely place while I speed through some other books.

Long train ride from Boston to NYC, but with some good company. I could use an apricot cocktail right now.

4⭐️ I know I never say this, but this book was too short. I wanted to know more about De Beauvoir‘s life and the people she met. Or why she was never married or lived with her life partner. This book is a great first look at her life, but I want more.

Gissy But I love that illustration! 😍❤️ 12mo

Some idiot in my apartment building threw out this perfectly fine bookshelf so I am spending my evening filling it with my books. Saves me buying yet another one! These are some books I bought on a quick shop in Maitland while there for the Aroma festival back in August. They haven‘t been unpacked from the bag since due to lack of room. I‘m a hoarder but I don‘t need less books, just a bigger house!

abbielistenstobooks Love that cattle art! 12mo
LapReader @abbielistenstobooks Thanks. It‘s from Cow Parade. So far I only have 2 but would love more. 12mo
gradcat Looks to be in pretty good shape, too! Fill it up!! 12mo
