A book I’ve avoided for years but am now 1/3 of the way finished with is Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged.” I have no idea anymore why I’ve snubbed my nose at it since high school, but I’m really enjoying it now. Okay, I can probably toss out a guess as to why I’m liking it now versus high school and that’s because of the economic and philosophical underpinnings of the book. I’m much more interested in this kind of stuff now, as opposed to age 17.
