The Encyclopedia of Celtic Wisdom, A Celtic Shaman's Sourcebook. I found a lot of neat history in it. The title says encyclopedia but it is a book, not a list of defined things. I got it from a really old pagan/wiccan lady that grows all kinds of exotic plants in her house. She gave me a ton of stuff. Next year I should be able to turn people into toads.

It's great so far. First hand account of WW1, Spanish civil war, etc. from an Italian Stirner-influenced anarchist who was in the thick of it.

just finished “The Long Haul” by Finn Murphy who was a long-haul trucker. was interesting as from the outset he said he wouldn’t engage with any silly trucker cowboy myth type stuff as it’s all crap. he was a long haul mover which was cool to hear about but i fucking hate moving so there were a few pages where i couldn’t help thinking “god that sounds like a nightmare.”

just started “La vida privada de los árboles” by Alejandro Zamba. highly recommend his “My Documents” short stories which is available in Spanish and English

I just finished Daoism and Anarchism by John A. Rapp which I really enjoyed.

Yesterday I started reading Against the Grain by James Scott.

Daoism and Anarchism

I couldn't get through it! But it's a cool book with a lot of great info for anarchists.

I like that story, Peach Blossom Spring, and how he explains its significance, also.

I almost got stuck at the second part about Mao but after that were the appendices with translations of old Daoist texts, which I can recommend! Probably the thing that kept me reading was my fascination with Chinese culture.
