1000 Books from Albert's blog


I set a Goal for myself a year ago to buy and read 1000 Kindle books! So far I've bought a little over 500 books and I've read 90% of them. 


I'm a veracious reader, ever since I dropped out of high school ironically. I used to never read when I was in school.  


The cool thing about me is that when I read a book, I only remember 1% of what I've read, and the other 99% goes into some black hole in the back of my brain, far far away from my conscious mind and memory!


I don't remember shit I read. And that's a cool thing!!! Fuck the Left Brain!


The Right Side's the Tight Side.


When you read stuff, and it all goes down some black hole where you forget 99% of the shit you read, what has actually happened is that all that stuff drifts like sediment down into your unconscious mind, or your so called "subconscious mind."


That's where the cool thing happens. 


Your Right Brain has access to all of that stuff in your unconscious mind. 


The right brain works like google search, at least mind does. When I think of something like "FISH" what happens is my right brain draws up all of this information anyway related to fish that I got from the books I've read and so on.


For example, when I think of FISH, my right brain immediately draws up Oannes, the ancient Babalonian fish head god. Oannes is connected to Johannes or Saint John of the Bible. Saint John draws up the Jordan river, which draws up the Nile river, which draws up the Blue Nile [the milky way]. Oannes also makes me think of the Dogon people, which is a tribe of Africans who say they were visited by fish headed aliens from the planet Sirius, in ancient times. 


Having this trick of mind or ability comes in handy when you write essays like I do, because even though you can't consciously remember 99.99% of what you have read or studied, one good key word, brings up a massive amount of sedimental data for you to use.


I think, in two years, I'll have bought 1000 books and have read them all. It's like a marathon! You just buy and read... buy and read... and you don't have to worry about remembering anything!

I cant even get to the one percent. I wish you luck. I have finished approximately two typical books in my life. Sphere by Michael Crichton (4th grade) and Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas (many times). My problrm has always been distraction. It takes about 5 pages before I start looking ahead to see when the chapter ends. Then I stop comprehending and just look at the words as I think about other things. That's why wikipedia pages are great. If I want to read Milton's Paradise Lost, I would go to the wikipedia page on Paradise Lost and get the "Cliffs Notes". Interestingly, I can read an almanac, encyclopedia, or road atlas cover to cover. It has the dry statistics I enjoy. Examples: "100 largest cities in the US", "Los Angeles metropolitan area insert", or "Late quarternary/active fault zones".I cant even get to the one percent. I wish you luck.

Only two books? Damn. Guess not everybody likes to read. I didn't realize Fear and Loathing was a book. I liked the movie. Maybe you just don't like certain genres of books? I can't stand fiction, unless they are romance fiction. Try reading romance novels! I love them. The good ones makes you breathe heavy.Only two books? Damn. Guess not everybody likes to read.

It is probably closer to 15. A comical underestimate. I have a keyword system of skimming for character actions that works as well as reading. Like studying the bold words.

*just remember to take the s out of http the part. Oxwall just assumes every link in the universe is https, and that anyone who typed in http just must've forgotten the s.

I think it's great what you're doing. Are there any books you'd recommend? Always looking for some.

@AK: I figured it out. I was able to go to the site. Thanks. @Asmo: I read mostly non-fiction. The only fiction I can stand to read are romance novels. They're hot and steamy! I recommend: "Shifter Devotion" by Natalia Wood.
