Do you need to read the first three books in the Hainish series to understand it?

I generally rotate through small piles. I read mostly when I go to bed but I have a hard time picking a book so I just read a few pages until it sticks or I move on.

I'm reading:

Dune

Feminism is for Everybody

Gender Trouble

Girl, Interrupted

Guards, Guards

People's History of the US

Our Enemies in Blue

Words of Radiance

I'm also reading The Ego and His Own, and it's pretty difficult. But since taking an interest in leftism, half the books and articles I read now make me feel like an idiot, so it's ok.

Also is How Not to Die worth a read if I've already watched his talk at Google?

nah, "the left is as bad as the right"/centrism is the smartest opinion possible out there.

I recommend reading the new translation of The Ego and His Own called The Unique and its Property!

You can find it in the sidebar of f/Egoism.

Would 'Ego and His Own' be worth a read even if you aren't an Anarchist, or an Egoist'?

English isn't my first language and i haven't finished the book yet, but I found it a hard read, stirner does a lot of repetitions and "ranting" and the language feels old.

On the other side, the content of the book is still relevant today, and you should read about anarchist egoism anyways, since it's quite influential in modern anarchist thinking. I don't have any more "modern" authors to recommend to you to read instead right now, thought.

If you're into older philosophy. I found it to be a pretty tough read.

The new translation is much better.

Firestarter by Stephen King. Wanted something light to page through after finishing The Room by Hubert Selby Jr, so I picked up this copy from my local library on my way home from work, since I somehow never managed to read this one.

It's interesting seeing just how much influence this book had over the direction, tone, and even plot of Stranger Things. Plus it's a breeze to read, got 60 pages into just during my commutes.

Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It's really good so far.
