Another reading list. This time from Counter Punch is their Favorite 100 Nonfiction Books in Translation, Published in English Since 1900 (http://www.counterpunch.org/nonfictranstxt.html). Whew. Looks very solid and in the spirit of keeping count to see who wins I've read six and a third: Other Inquisitions, Brecht on Theatre, My Last Sigh, The Society of the Spectacle, History of Sexuality: An Introduction, The Films in My Life and the third is the first volume of the trilogy Memory of Fire (which was so bad--thoughtless, poorly constructed, dim-witted, y'know bad--I never bothered with the rest). Actually also read chunks of some of the rest but rules of the game require completeness.
