    Bought it almost 10 years ago and never got around to reading it (same with many other books, I’m trying to make a dent in my backlog...)... but currently reading The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein.

    Headed to STL this weekend and been wanting to visit this for a minute now. Thought I'd read up on Cahokia before I stop there.

    Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky.

    I’ve been meaning to start reading Russian literature for years and I’ve finally taken the plunge. War and peace once I’m done with this. :myman:
