The book that stands out to me would probably have to be: "Rocket and Lightship" because of the depth of the essays. Worth reading if you ask me.

Camille | 14 comments I gave up on the Marx and Engels Reader, because it was just too dense. The Marx-Engels Reader by Karl Marx
I finished Intellectual Foundation of Information Organization by Elaine Svenonius Also finished Insane America's Criminal Treatment of Mental Illness by Alisa Roth which was very interesting, a must read.
Also finished Democracy in Chains The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America by Nancy MacLean
And a book I forgot to mention, Essays by Wallace Shawn
that was also an interesting read about a range of topics.

Not sure what i'll read next.
