help me to read and be more smarterer
I recently moved to a new city and don't have cable or fast enough internet to do much streaming so I'm finding myself with a lot of free time. I've been putting off reading books for a long time due to laziness and video game/internet/tv overstimulus so I figure now is as good a time as any to get to it. It's especially important since I want to be more interesting to potential friends/dates that I meet, since my friend circle here is so small.
So, what books will make me smarter and more interesting person? I'm open to anything - Ta-Nehisi Coates on race relations, Slavoj Zizek and philosophy, books on fascinating and important historical events or times, even fiction that makes you think. I'm all ears.
The only thing I'm not particularly interested in at the moment is genre fiction or any plot driven stories for the purpose of entertainment, any "action movies" of books.
maybe i'm streaming terrible dj right now if i am its here
