Book # 36 is finished. The Prince by Machiavelli. This was one of those books I always wanted to read since it is referenced so often in other literature (hell, the man earned his own word), but I never really came across a copy and it seemed like it might be a little dull. It was actually very interesting. The once you get into the flow of the language it is really pretty easy to follow and he makes a lot of interesting observations about people and societies. The “it’s you or them” attitude is a bit cynical, but at the same time, he was addressing someone who was looking to conquer other nations, so it does sort of apply. Overall, far more interesting than I anticipated and a much better read than I thought too. Oh, it’s also really pretty short.
I really have nothing else to report at this time.
