Found this at a thrift store today :) It's been years since I read a romance novel.

Oh, don't you just feel a little destitute when a book ends with the hero so miserable and unrealized.

Sorry it's a little dim. I really felt a little disturbed when I read this page to think about all the cultures and practices and just simple joys that people used to have that are lost to more rigid, oppressive, social expectations. How people are so often shamed out of the things that make humans free. I haven't devoured a book like this in years, but Crome yellow is just so artistic and thoughtful and deep. If

Bklover You‘re right- it‘s sad. Makes you wonder how many of these traditions are just lost. 10mo
HippiesPJparty @Bklover Yes! And what the world would be like if they hadn't been. 10mo

This book gives a pretty accurate example of how propaganda works and who it works for. It's also pretty funny, orginal, fast paced, and not a bad story either. I had a lot of fun reading this book. Highly recommend!

Inferno | Dante

The only book to ever give me nightmares. Its so old and yet still so terrifying and it's message has not been lost.

blurb

This book is packed with documents and real stories of the crazy, dark things the CIA did to test radiation and how the atom bomb was created. Sometimes all the dates and numbers can bog the book down a little, but that's just the cold, hard evidence. It's arranged perfectly and is absolutely jaw dropping. It's pretty hard to even see the world the same after reading this.

I forget the name of the painting on the cover, but I always get lost looking at it. This book is so trippy and dark and skillfully written. One of my favorites.

HippiesPJparty Yes!! Awesome thank you! I want others to be able to look at it in more detail. :D 11mo
Graywacke It‘s such a curiosity, that painting. 11mo

This was the book that made me the cynical, overly analytical person I am today. The more time goes by, the more it feels like we're living in an Orwellian society. More than that, though, it seems we almost always have.
