Promoted on my reading list



September 26, 2008 – Comments (3)

I pulled Hayek's The Road to Serfdom off my shelf this past week -- it's been there for quite some time, waiting to be read, one of many that I know are classic, must-read material. (It's embarrassing how many books I have that are in the queue, so to speak!) I see no better time than the present to go ahead and do it, given the current circumstances on many of our minds. I hope to make headway this weekend.

I know I'm not Oprah, and nobody really cares what I'm reading. ;) But I hope everyone has a good weekend.

To be honest, I'm not gonna read that book (I can see for myself what has been happening with my very own eyes, and I don't need to read books on the downfall of the US and our bubble economy to convince me).

I wanted to say though, glad to see you blogging here Alyce, I've always enjoyed your mostly level-headed analysis on the main fool site, hopefully you'll keep adding posts here, because I do enjoy reading a more editorial opinionated piece from some of you guys who I respect a lot.  (I'd have to put deej and bent up there with my favorites too.)

And completely OT: kudos to your parents, because "Alyce" with a "y" is just really freakin cool in my book. :)

Thanks for the comments guys! Demondoug, I agree, I don't need the book to see what's happening, haha. And I have always known that philosophically The Road to Serfdom would pretty much be preaching to the choir for me. But... it is a hole in my reading I have done on such topics so now seems as good a time as any to go ahead and do it.

I was CAPS blogging a bit in 2007, not sure why I stopped, but I am back, and I have seen so many bloggers here like you who are offering so many good insights, especially given the current historical (and outrageous) circumstances we all face. So thank you for the kind words welcoming me back into the CAPS blogosphere. :)

And my mom thanks you for the compliment, haha. I have to say I am glad she made that decision too. I'm fond of my "y," haha. (Although a recent flame commenter on one of my articles said I was a knucklehead who couldn't spell my name right. HA!)
