    Reading Books

    I'm not that big into reading, but I realize I need to change that, because reading isn't THAT painful, and that I learned the most successful people do a lot of reading of books and are always learning. I have my Conan The Barbarian/Destroyer books and yes they are fun to read. I also have the Man Cave Book, which I bought for a few dollars on eBay several years ago to get ideas for my man caves and it was very enjoyable to read and look at the pictures.

    I'm considering going back to my local library after 6 years away, and I'm going to be reading up on things that interest me and that I can do to better myself. I want to read up on Trump, and computers and technology since that's where my top interests are. I want to learn about modern computers, software, phone apps that I'm missing out on, because my computer skills are old and back in the Windows XP and Windows 7 eras.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    I've been reading Ryan Holliday lately. Daily Stoic is very good. I've just begun Ego is The Enemy, which is also good. Very thought provoking books, with more good ideas per page than most, without much fluff. I'd recommend him, if you want something more philosophical or reflective about big life issues, but still easy to read/digest.

    Though probably not worth it for you, an electronic reader's a good thing for some. There's many many books out there on any subject. More than you'll find in any store. Some are cheap, only a buck or two. High quality true adventure like I go for, it often costs more, but there's still a big selection out there for ten or twelve bucks. Sometimes less, specially since the pandemic hit. Sales must be down. Your books are stored in an online account, so they can be replaced if anything happens to your tablet or reader. Mine came from Barnes & Noble, but I think Amazon is big on electronic books as well. You run them off gift cards or your credit card. Buys your stuff right at home.
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    I hadn't read a book in years and bought a Kindle and now plow through them. Mostly classics.

    I started with "simplified English books" published by "Penguin" collection. I bought them in a FNAC shop. I guess you have Fnac shops in spain. If they do not have them, they can probably order them.
