What are some good books on getting fit?
No Sun and Steel please. It's nonsense.
All you need is the basics if you are a flabby seat potato.
Read this and get the gist of barbell lifting and the mechanics involved. Don't read too much into the dieting section. If you start lifting this way for the rest of your life every week it will change your fucking life I promise you, fuck all that spiritual mojo shit. All you need is lift.
Is this book worth buying? I've never read anything by Coulter but I've seen her plug this book and she makes sense to me.
On simply technical terms, who is the most skilled writer in history.
doesn't need to be the best plot or write even good stories or something deep, only technique.
I'm sure it has to be some poet.
What should I read next /lit/?
I am in the process of reading along with audiobook of pic related and I am wondering, besides dubs did 4chan latched so heavily onto this because it referenced autism, has a character make a nigger joke, and
Bateman is into feminine dick porn
American Psycho has the same kind of nihilistic navel gazing in its ruminations which 4chan's userbase has come to adopt, and has a main character who is at once affluent and suffering immensely, an image many 4channers wouldn't mind projecting themselves onto. Its the Evagelion of books in that sense.
Hey, to those who have read this:
Did you read it with any sort of help—annotations, end notes, a guide?
I'm wondering how necessary notes are.
I initially tried reading it with notes but quickly became over-reliant on them. I decided it was best to put the notes away and use google if something was really bugging me.
But honestly, Ulysses isn't that difficult. The only people who are going to have problems are those who read it with the, "I have to prove my intelligence," mentality.
That's interesting that you feel notes were actually a burden. I can imagine that, if you mean you didn't like your reading being interrupted all the time, or felt like you didn't give yourself enough time to think about things because the "answers" in the back were too tempting to resist.
You said that Ulysses isn't that difficult. Are you from the UK? I imagine the language and the references are less of a problem if you're from that area. I'm American.
Alright, I got all the epubs of Asimov's The Foundation. BUT I just noticed that they add up to thousands of pages. They are worthy? Or I shall not fall for the meme?
I don't have time to loose, I want to spend a good time reading.

Monthly reminder that this abomination happened.
I'll break it down. The final quarter of last year witnessed a lot of Googledocs projects trying to recreate the Totalitarian book (or make a sequel, either). These efforts were almost always met with hecklers and people who'd delete all the effort out of spite (some people thought it was in accord with something called anarchic-synergism which they dubbed their "movement"). Miraculously, the book you see before you managed to reach a good 400 pages and was published by the end of December.

Can you reccomend good examples of alliteration in poetry or books?

Someone had posted a paper about 4chan some weeks ago. It was extremely well written. Did someone save the link?
