Reading, fast and slow

TIL that Art Garfunkel (of Simon and Garfunkel fame) has a pretty cool book list.

And … scrolling down, it’s updated as recently as 2020!

Slowly and steadily, he’s covered a lot, and a lot of good stuff — and written it all down too!

I scrolled through all of it, and his “sixties-to-eighties reading period” is my favorite 🙂
