...probably you are reading the wrong books...for you I mean, not that the content is unworthy. Oftentimes I do the same thing, and I find its just not the right time to absorb whatever is the book is offering up.

Just Finished reading "BlackSkin White Masks" by Frantz Fanon.A fairly well known book I assume. very insightful. will have to return after a better understanding of certainpsychological terms and concepts shared there

Trying to return to one called "To have or to be" by Erich Fromm. ANother very insightful book. Looks at the "having" and "being"modes of existence. of particular interest I found the application of these two modes to learning.

I find the mind works like that eh. You may decide you going to read some book or other but the mind knows what it needs to connect with at a particular point in time and so you may sway to what you may not have intended initially to read or stubbornly force yourself to read the book and perhaps getting less than you would from it had you read it in its season.
Another lesson learned from that is that in sharing books we may give to others books or information which they are not ready or inclined to connect with at a particular point because we felt so inclined at a certain point. Came to me when I found myself unable to comfortable read what was offered me at a certain point thought engaging the same books at another point reading them came easy.

Iniko Ujaama...am really feeling your second point. Someone I really respect, perhaps respect the most of all people I know suggested two books to me and I have not gotten around to getting either. But I must have read quite a few books in the last 6 months I keep wondering if it seems I don't want to read them. Just not the right time.

Indeed suggesting books in a general sense is a cool scene, but if its directly it can be an imposition just like any other.
