I'm reading a collection of Steinbeck short stories before I go back to rereading Ovid. I finished The Moon is Down today and I really really liked it. Probably my favorite of the four I've read so far. Just Cannery Row and The Pearl left; so far CR in a way feels a little bit like a retelling of Tortilla Flat. I'm only thirty pages in so it has room to grow but the whole aesthetic of it definitely gives me that feeling. It must just be something related to the Great Depression in general, I'd suppose.

Anyway picrel is my stack of Greek/Roman shit to fill out the holes in-between Homer and Virgil. I'm excited to get to it after I finish studying the Metamorphoses a bit more.

And so was Statius. I know that, it was just a loose turn of phrase to simplify the message, nothing particularly meaningful about it.

99% of non fiction is just fiction masquerading as the truth for a century until more information becomes known that falsifies what was previously thought of as the "truth".

I think as a total explanation of Austrian economics in one book it's good, pretty heavy overlap with Human Action, but more accessible
