A thread to highlight your current reading and for your comments on them (NB if you think it is particularly interesting though, make a new thread).

That still gets read? That's a pretty arcane and eccentric read. I figured if that book was known at all today, it was a piece of trivia in Irish lore as something you got pamphleteered with, like a somewhat more respectable forerunner to Chick tracts
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

It's kind of a notorious book that could only really be used and looked at as an artifact of fundamentalism, or maybe a piece of some crazy import that turns into Americana that zaps and "spiritualizes" the American mind in rather obnoxious ways.

Just got a hard copy of John Derbyshire's Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism. Read a pirated version last year and wanted a physical for the collection.

Just read The Undying Spirit of France by Maurice Barres. Barres is a fascinating character but this wasn't a very compelling read.
