A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counselor, a multitude of counselors.Charles Baudelaire

I can't believe that I have not posted for 2 weeks. Must be post Xmas langour or laziness. I'm reading two interesting biographies at the moment, one on Josef Stalin and the other on Mao Tse Tung. Both dictators and murderers exceeding Hitler. The banality of evil comes out in both books as does the overarching theory of Communism and the party line. Makes for sobering reading in a new century. DK

We are now in 2009. A time to read more books. Last year was a bit of a downer on my reading for a number of reasons. I only read 72 books, well below average for me. Still it is now a new year with new opportunities. I'm sure that 2009 will bring me further enlightenment from my pursuit of reading. Happy New Year.
