In all honesty waxna ma ka fahmin boogan. However, I take the stance that Tegmark shouldn't be considered as an intellectual but as a sci-fi novelist.
Anyways this is a "Tube Book"; whole purpose of the book is for commuters to read the cover and think "Maash'Allah! Ninkanuu waa mutacalin". Breaking stereotypes. Black guy reading a book on the fucking universe is not something you come across.
The old geeljires were full of pride and honor. My favorite quote from him is when he refused to pay tax at Berbera and when he said They are making our children their children in refernces to the Christian missionaries work in Somalia
Republic by Plato. The book puzzled me already by the first pages especially by the discussion on what a just man is. I disagree heavily on what Plato said, especially when he alluded that a just man shouldn’t not partake in a bad deed even when it’s in the defense of justice otherwise according to him even if you are just partaking in a bad deed for the sake of what is good it makes you bad as well, he also thought that a just man cannot define and say who a bad man is which is ludicrous but still understandable in the same sense
Finished the my sister is a serial killer book needless to say it was actually worth the hype I just wish I read it earlier. I can see this easily being pick by Netflix to be made into a show. Back to reading being and nothingness that shit is LONG as hell.
Someone give me a book recommendation I like true crime/ horror I think I've found my new niche
It really depends on what I'm reading if I really enjoy the book I will spend 4-5 hours reading the book. If it's a short novel around 2-300 pages I can easily finish in two days. Books that don't interest me or that are slow in the beginning may take a week or longer . I good to a weekly book club and we all decide on a book for the month or that week. We come back and discuss what we have read, that motivates me to read chapters or books when I don't feel like doing so.
When I'm busy with Uni related work I don't read as much , but still try and finish any books on my reading list. I see this as a hobby just the same as shitposting on here or binging a Netflix show I just spend a couple hours of my day doing it. The key is just time management I use a excel spreadsheet and follow my to do list for the day once that's out the way I can do what I like.
