"What I'm Reading"
Have you given thought to anything by Ayn Rand, or have you already read a good deal of her works? — Jon Lupen 05:17, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
- I've been meaning to borrow The Fountainhead from the library. Several friends from college recommended it. What would you suggest? Bobby Stein 07:05, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
- I have Anthem and The Fountainhead in the back of my car, been looking to start them. Anthem is a good place to start as it's fairly short. At just over 100 or so pages, you could probably finish it in an afternoon. I read Atlas Shrugged not too long ago, it's a marathon of a read, but it's one of the best books I've read. We the Living is also worth looking at if you liked Anthem, The Fountainhead and/or Atlas Shrugged. — Jon Lupen 14:23, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
- -takes notes of good books- May I ask what kind of genre these are in? I could always add onto my 25+ book list. ^_^ -- Azazel the Assassin/talk 15:56, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
- I could make it through 100 pages a lot easier than the 700+ of The Fountainhead so perhaps I'll start with Anthem. When I used to commute to Manhattan by train and/or bus I devoured books on a regular basis. Ever since we moved to Seattle I've only been able to digest essays and memoirs. Too busy! Thanks for the suggestions. I'll put them in my queue. Bobby Stein 15:59, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
- @Azazel: They are classified under scifi and philosophical. Anthem is about distinquishing yourself from society and maintaining your identity, and Altas Shrugged is about... a lot. I'll get back to you on your talk page about that when I can put it down into words.
- @Bobby:I know right? During school I can burn through a book rather quickly. I read Atlas Shrugged and all of it's ~1070 pages in about a month and a half with a busy schedule. When summer hits and classes end, I just keep going and have trouble sitting myself down long enough to read more than some wiki pages and computer tech articles. If your like me, you might have to schedule some time to read. X) — Jon Lupen 16:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
- Sci-fi and Philosophical, two of my four favorite genres. I'll definably look into those books. As for reading - humorously enough I also used to devour books - till Highschool ended, used to read 100 pages a day, at least, back then (unless I got caught helping my dad in the garage for some project over half the day x_x). Now with college I've been occupying my time with too much, and with my habit of reading three books at a time, that's no good. x) I need to set up my own reading schedule sometime soon... -- Azazel the Assassin/talk 17:22, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Unlike my question above about Exuro Flatus, this question is more for personal curiosity. Evennia refers to the Seer as a "she," yet there is no way to really tell what gender the Seer truly is. Was it (the Seer) written to be a she, a he, or androgynous? Just wondering! :-) -- Timeoffire45 rawr 20:55, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
- The voice does have a more "old woman" kind of feel. So I'm sure it is either female, or perhaps the race only has one gender. =o Though I do wish we knew more about the Seer (as a race that is). -- Azazel the Assassin/talk 21:31, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
- Definitely agree with that last part. I'm just curious because it sounds to me like it's either an old woman kind of thing or an unaging, overly-enthused guy. Ah well, again, I'm really just curious is all. -- Timeoffire45 rawr 03:27, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
- Though Evennia refers to the Seer as a female, the Ancient Seers are actually genderless. Bobby Stein 19:18, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
- Is that an implication on the race? =o -- Azazel the Assassin/talk 00:05, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
- Is that why the Seers (for there are two of them that we know of, I think... or is there another one out there I don't know about?) can't reproduce to re-populate the world with their race? :-P -- Timeoffire45 rawr 02:34, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
