Can anyone recomend me a series to read? I've recently read Skullduggery Pleasant by Derk Landy, The Magicians by Lev Grossman and The Last Dragon Chronicles by Chris D'Lacey. Also should I upgrade to a kindle paperwite for manga to be better and a backlight and waterproofing, I'm on a kindle basic the one just before they added lighting to it.
Try Malazan series. It takes a bit dedication but I've heard its alright. Broken empire series if you want a dark triad maxxed protag.

I used to be a huge fan pro wrestling, so wrestling books are pretty much the only books I've read. This is one of my favs

Anyone know any good geopolitical books? I've started reading Diplomacy by Henry Kissinger but it's a little heavy.

Books are meant for reading, not bookmarking. For what purpose does one use a bookmark for? Just read the whole thing jfl.

I recommend Cockroach by Rawi Hage

A man, who is an immigrant from the Middle East, moves to the slums of Montreal, where he learns that he is stuck in poverty. When he tries to take his own life, a "man in a speedo" saves him. He is then sentenced to therapy, where he explains his horrid childhood and how he believes that he is a cockroach. He is also in love with a girl, Shohreh, and is friends/enemies with a man named Reza. He gets a job at a restaurant, and can't help but stare at his boss' daughter. He also steals from every rich man and poor woman. Throughout the book the man starts to slowly change, for better and worse.

Its dark humour

Sapiens, by Yuval Harari is really good. Id say he does very well at exploring how our hunther-gatherer paleo brains have behaved (and keep behaving) along "civilized" western history. And he does it in an entertaining and simple to understand way. Its a good read and good a cope, at least for me. He is low key black pilled too.

From the first chapter:

"JOSEPH Goebbels reaches puberty at about thirteen. But given his later reputation is itworth emphasising that he will be thirty-three before he first has sexual intercoursewith a woman.15 For the intervening twenty years this brilliant but celibate cripple’slife will be a trail of temptations, near-seductions, and sexual rebuffs etched into hismemory. At thirteen he and his pal Herbert Beines have a grubby mudlark of a friend,Herbert Harperscheidt, whose stepmother Therese always wears crisp, clean skirts;so Joseph Goebbels recalls fourteen years later. The sexual arousal that he first de-tects towards this mature female returns when he is fifteen. He harbours secret crusheson women like Frau Lennartz, the factory owner’s wife. Evidently another passion-object, his brother Hans’s girlfriend Maria Liffers, does not return his feelings be-cause his teachers and her parents protest and Goebbels has a frightful scene with hisfather. All of his pals have girlfriends—Hompesch has one enticingly called MariaJungbluth. Goebbels however senses only a ‘dark yearning’ as Eros awakes in him.

‘My libido is sick,’ he will write aged twenty-six. ‘In affairs of the heart we humansare all scandalously selfish. For the phallus we sacrifice hecatombs of immortal souls.’16Basking in what he sees as one woman’s love he will reflect, ‘I am everything toher.␣ .␣ . Or am I allowed to savour life’s treasures more intensely because I am doomed to depart it early on? Now and again I have this premonition!’ "

I'm currently reading the Rational male. Most of it is PUA crap but some of it is based.

I prefer reading it this way tbh.
yeah i like physical books a lot better too.
i just meant the process of ordering that book from the website seemed like a pain and expensive.
it's not as if you can buy that book in a used bookstore for cheap or even in a regular bookstore.
