I’ve been reading a lot of good stuff lately, but the literature I write about probably gives the wrong impression of who I am. The most precise way I can describe myself is that I’m a guy in podunk Wisconsin who washes dishes on Saturday mornings. There’s nothing erudite or fancy about that.
I have a growing list of books on ancient history to delve into. In particular Ancient Greece has my attention at the moment. Is there a larger project in the offing connected to all of this Ancient Greece reading? Maybe.
But redundancy is bad for the soul. Reading too much of one type of book inevitably leads to boredom of the mind. And boring minds lead to boring people. Data indicates that the world does not suffer from a lack of boring people, so there’s no need for me to become boring to aid world stability.
It’s time to read the dumbest book ever. The problem is that I have no idea what book is the dumbest. So I’m turning to the great people who read this blog.
Give me a pitch on a book that you believe is the dumbest book you’ve ever read. I will pick one book which sounds dumber than all the rest and read it by May 1st.
The winner of the dumbest book challenge will be reviewed on this blog.
Pick wisely, argue forcefully.
May the dumbest book win!
