I've been really interested in Ayn Rand, although I've never read any of her books. I was hoping to read Anthem and Atlus Shrugged (which I hear is also very good).

Originally posted by triGEAR for some reason i'm really afraid of reading ayn rand. i have no clue why, though.
Perhaps because she's a conservative ethnic-cleansing fascist? I've been meaning to read Ayn Rand for a while, if only because I've heard she makes good arguments for such outlandish ideas that it forces you to understand your own convictions better.
I started to read "Atlas Shrugged" many years ago, but for some reason I thought it was extremely dry at first and quit about 1/8 of the way through. I should pick it back up, but I already have about 10 books lined up before it.... I wish I could stop time and exist in a stasis where all I did was read books for hundreds of non-years only to pick up from where I left off whenever I wanted.
