currently reading Peter Sloterdijk: no mesmo barco [on the same boat], if Europe rises; and João Guimarães Rosa: grande sertão: veredas. also some chapters of Robert Kurz's com todo vapor ao colapso [full-power toward collapse, a selection of articles published in newspapers and in his Black Book of Capitalism], Hobbes' leviathan, Kant's critique of practical reason (it sucks) and Sloterdijk's critique of cynical reason (it rocks).

There was a book? Mmm it must be good. I may read it if i get the chance.

I just finished reading "The book with no name" by "Anonymous" and the sequel "The eye of the moon". Brilliant books, i highly recommend them.
