I've been reading the Chuang-Tzu, ancient Chinese/Taoist philosophy, for awhile now but it's slow going so far. The Tao Te Ching was easier for me for some reason.

He's on my reading list! It's rough, huh? I'm reading Books on Fire. It's a slow read for me but good.

It might be that I'm just not in the right mood for it. Or maybe it gets easier once you get deeper into it.

I will definitely give him a try one of these trips to the library. Thanks!

I started that book and didn't finish it. It is a rarity for me to not finish a book, so I guess that says something...

Still slogging through On the Oceans of Eternity the 3rd in the Nantucket trilogy of the Change series by SM Stirling. The first in the Nantucket set and the first in the Change set were more post apocalyptic and dealt with the time of the "event/change" and the years immediately thereafter, while the rest of the series becomes more "alternative history". While I sped through those first 2, the rest I've found myself slowing down the reading pace considerably.

Still an interesting series though.
