Reading Notes Introduction

I keep a scribble scrapbook of notes for possible development as K. modules, blog posts. Some of those notes are inspired by reading, reading now on the kindle, gift from (bk &) theMarcus, able to expand the pitch for my aging degenerating eyes, I also have the source text already digitized. I’ll cite passages here, maybe some other time designate, dedicate a post to move them to …

Why I mention a particular book is a mixed bag: read and you’ll see: maybe I’m recommending it, “Here lies wisdom, go thou, and do likewise.” Maybe I’m mentioning it to disagree, to correct it, to argue against it. Maybe I’m pointing out that it duplicates, parallels, or maybe plagiarizes something I’ve been saying and doing for half a century.

Authority is one thing some of my candidates here may have, but not necessarily.


I’ll go blind, die long before more than a percent or two of this is well-begun.
My personal section has a literature section as well. You may also try searching for any author here.
bk gave me a kindle with like 300 books on it: many I knew, many I’m thrilled to meet: and commend here. bk has offered hundreds more since, greatest present!

All of K. was a bibliography of a kind, contained reading references and notes passim.


You know some authors are so appealing one falls in love with them as it were: Charles Dickens, for example. Stephen King, sometimes.
In my recent to current reading Sarah Vowell is a writer I just love! She’s not the only one. And Tom Standage has just joined the list.
