  1. And what proportion of those books are destined to remain in your antilibrary, AE?

  2. I’m making a concerted effort to read more philosophy, but I think that the literary theory ones will probably remain unread. Jomini is also dry reading, so I probably will only read snippets.

  3. Eclectically excellent, although is not clear to me what type of speed is implied by Virilio’s title.

  5. A.E. : I wonder what’ll it be like if it was Clausewitz that was bein’ read durin’ those years before the Civil War, instead of that Swiss conman who got every General mimickin’ Napoleon with their hand inside their coat?
