Nechayev was a contemporary of Mikhail Bakunin, a Russian nihilist/anarchist who set up revolutionary cells over Russia, killed a guy for disagreeing with him, went on the run over Europe and spent the rest of his life in a Russian labour camp.

...I'm posting this for the lulz, because seriously at this moment I'm reading Star Wars X-Wing : Rogue Squadron. The first in Michael Stackpole's series.

We have a library between a few of us here at work, so I was looking for some fast entertainment. I first read this one in high school.

In addition to that though I picked up a copy of 1984 from my parents while in Florida who didn't have a clue that they even had it. It's a bit too deep for at-work/commute reading, but the presence of it at my desk makes me look intelligent.

Why? I have it in print right in front of me. I can't read on the screen anyway because after a while it makes my eyes jump really bad.

Because then you dont have to look from book to screen.  Its easier.

Plus you can copy and paste slogans from the book and randomly IM them to people.

double plus ungood book that orwell one. Animal farm was teh l4me tho

My former flatmate is a star wars addict. He forced me at blasterpoint to read 'Tales from Jabbas Palace' It turned out to be a really cool read, anthology of short stories, each revolving around a different assassination attempt, made upon Jabba during the scene in the second film.

Well, The X-Wing books are fucking awesome. Stackpole is probably one of the best SW authors, I'd say even better than Zahn. The first book gives me a horrid toothache with the annoying Corellian happy cakes and shit.

Went on a book buying spree.

Carl Schmitt's Concept of the Political, a couple of ideology textbooks (mostly for reference purposes) and The Grooves of Change by JF Brown, about Eastern Europe from the 80s to today.

Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
