Current Books I am Now Reading

So one thing I thought that would be fun is to list the books I am currently reading (either for the first time or for the hundredth time, just for kicks). I will post the book and if my schedule permits, a short column of what I think about the book(s) so far. I ENCOURAGE my readers to comment on this page about the books I am reading and their views of the books. Readers can also post what they are reading and suggestions for me to read in the future.

I have recently started Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and have been glued to the 1168 page novel ever since. I can definitely see why many people look with disfavor on this book due to political and philosophical aspects of it, but I must admit it intrigues me to look further into Objectivism.

Who doesn’t love Shakespeare’s The Tempest? It is a fantastic little play with great comic relief by the famous Trinculo and Stephano, who will make you chuckle every time you read the play.

  1. Wow, you’re in the middle of two excellent works of literature and I love the contrast between them! I’ve made posts on both of these books in the past, so you should check them out when you’re finished (unless you happen to like spoilers :).

    Thanks for following my blog, by the way. I’ve followed yours as well.

    • Thank you for following my blog!

      Atlas Shrugged is coming along very well and I am impressed with how well Ayn Rand wrote the novel. The Tempest is an old favorite of mine and I love diversifying myself through all kinds of literature.

      I will definitely read your posts on each of the books!

  2. SJEnthusiast,

    Haven’t read Atlas Shrugged, but loved The Fountainhead. Rand’s ability for poetry, despite her rather unsympathetic viewpoint, is astounding. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

    The Tempest is hands down my favorite Shakespeare. Apparently it’s his only play not based on any source material.

    Thanks again for visiting us on the Copia blog and check out my other book site ‘Living with Literature’:http://livingwithliteraturee.com/

    Cheers!-

    • I love Atlas Shrugged so far and will definitely post about my progress soon! Ayn Rand is magnificent and I will be sure to read the Fountainhead afterward.

      Very interesting, I did not know that about the Tempest! I will be sure to visit your other site as well. Thank you for following my blog!
