Ive been jumping book to book partially reading some books according to my interest level.

Some i didnt finish…and only read a part of.

I mean, there are really famous books where I always skip certain parts. I mentioned recently somewhere on the forum when I re-read Return of the King I usually skip most of the Dead Marshes with Frodo, Sam and Golem because its just unreadable.

“Capital and ideology” by Piketty (2020). A bit short (well, if you can say that about a book with over 1000 pages, not counting the appendix) on the ideology part, and instead a lot of letters are spent on his vision of a “participatory socialism” and describing developments like highly educated individuals switching to left-wing parties and those mostly abandoning projects of progressive redistribution, but a well-informed and interesting work for sure.
