One of the benefits of having a list of books I’ve read over the past decade, is that I can post the occasional “what was I reading on this date X years ago” entry.
So looking at October 24th:
- 1999, 10 years ago, I had just started reading Milton’s “Paradise Lost”.
- 2004, 5 years ago, I was in between two excellent books, Paul Bowle’s “The Sheltering Sky” and Charles Bukowski’s “Last Night of the Earth Poems”
- 2008, last year, I was looking at Bill Eppridge’s great photo set “A Time it Was: Bobby Kennedy and the 1960s“
Currently, I’m reading the interviews that make up Vaclav Havel’s “Disturbing the Peace”.
