LISSAGARAY PROSPER-OLIVIER
History of Paris Commune 1871

Did you finish Bakunin?

Yes,very quickly. I devoured his books.
Now this by Lissagaray is the best book about paris commune. Paris commune was one of the finest and most humane revolutions

I ordered an audiobook.
So far I’m enjoying it.

I don’t have the concentration to read books.

I’m totally assuming that you’ve read Marx’s Civil War in France.

Maybe if you try few pages and gradually increase them?

I have read about it.
Both communists and anarchists claim Commune as theirs. But it’s no one’s.
It was a work of many anonymous people-heros

I can read a few pages but my concentration is shot.

I prefer listening to audiobooks because I can be doing other things while I’m listening.

I have two PKD books I want a read and a bio of Hugh Everett 3rd. I just gotta focus. I’ve been buying ebooks too because they are cheaper and no one wants to read my textbooks after I pass. It’s easier to move around and store but I hate reading on the computer. I like the real thing.

I recommend reading to all fellows who have paranoia

I bought some second-hand book last year. They were issued in 1970s or 1980s.

I can get peace in mind when I am reading a wonderful book.

Me too.
I already read the new books i bought.
Time for new books.

Because I cannot read for long stretches at this time, I have turned to books of short stories which sometimes are very interesting. I like to ask, “Why was this story written?” The best, to me, was “Great American Short Stories,” compiled by Paul Negri. It’s 258 pages and costs $2.41 on Amazon Kindle.

I apologize, I quoted the wrong book of short stories as my favorite. My favorite is “40 Short Stories, A Portable Anthology,” third edition, compiled by Beverly Lawn. This selection was the best. I bought it at a used book store.

Same I have trouble concentrating and staying focused most of the time.
