Tractatus is difficult to read and also, wrong, so there's not even much reward for the reader who perseveres! You're better off with Philosophical Investigations, but still, I'm impressed. How come you're reading Wittgenstein?
I just finished this, after putting it on hiatus while travelling because I didn't want my copy to get destroyed:
I took Christopher Isherwood's Goodbye to Berlin away with me, but from page 75 it went to page 105, then later on it skipped back to page 75. 30 pages missing in my only holiday reading
By the time I got back it was just over a month since I bought it and Waterstone's would only do an exchange for their unreadable book, so I got a book about Iraq's marsh arabs in the 1950s that I later found out could have got for peanuts off Amazon.
Here is a picture of the lovely cover of my doomed book:
Goodbye to Berlin was quite good until I got to the missing pages, but now I have such negative associations for Isherwood that I don't think I'll ever be able to read another book of his! I hate you Vintage!
I don't know what I'm going to read next. Tempted to just go for another Joe Sacco graphic novel, I can pretend it's 'research' because he writes about modern wars.
