Day 23 - A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven't
Foucault's Pendulum, by Umberto Eco
I have wanted to read this for years, well before I even considered reading The Name of the Rose. I gave it a couple false starts and chickened out, intimidated by how insanely complex it is purported to be. This ain't your aunt's Dan Brown bullshit. I kept thinking, gotta put it off, wait until you're smarter. I knew it was probably gonna require a lot of research, and I fully intend to keep a notebook handy while reading it so I can write down whatever I want/need to look up. Now that I've read The Name of the Rose and loved it so damn much, I think the time for this one is fast approaching. I'M READY. Haha probably not. BUT WHATEVER I am excited about it.
I just want to read all the Eco. ALL OF IT.
Plus this book is about secret societies and the SEPHIROT and I am ABOUT THAT.
As for the Foucualt Pendulum itself, CHECK IT OUT IT'S REALLY COOL.
