i'm not much of a reader; can't seem to slow down long enough to devote time to taking in info at that pace.
but a friend just recommended a book to me: the function of reason, by alfred north whitehead.
since it's only 100 pages or so, i thought i'd look to find it and give it a try.
so yes, shorter books appeal to me more, i guess.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
