Rise and Fall of the Third Reich



  • Friends,
    Currently engrossed in the above book by William L. Shirer. I’ve had the book for years and finally made the point to read it. I’m currently at the point where Hitler has proclaimed himself “Fuhrer” and the Nazi’s are nationalizing all aspects of German life (1933-1937). The history is rivoting. Has anyone read it? Comments?



  • No, but I hope to get around to reading it. I suggest “Hitler’s Pope” as a follow-up book if you are interested in the Holocaust and seeing the Vatican’s involvement in it.



  • i have not read it but heard many good things about the “Rise and Fall of the THird Reich” i might read it when i get older, u know when i have the time and i finish my current reading Agenda 🙂



  • Mike couldn’t stand such a long book 🙂

    Just had the book put on my desk a few days ago. Hopefully I’ll get around to reading it once I finish Red Rabbit.



  • yeai aint much of a reader, 😞 i wish i was though



  • too bad… :-?



  • yea realley 😞



  • well im a reader 4000 pages a month



  • yup Geze is a reader all right 😉 holy Marcus Aurilius 4000 a month, im like 40 a month lol



  • I had to count for a school thing



  • 4000 pages per month… sure… :roll:



  • 4000 pages per month… sure…

    It’s ~130 pages by days, dependint on what he read, what he count (does he count school reading?) and how old he is, this is not necessarly false or exagerated.

    Maybe reading is’nt “cool”, but it’s good to know some are reading other thing than the TV guide.



  • Who said reading isn’t cool? The ability to read is probably the greatest gift of all. But if you couldn’t read, you probably couldn’t understand this message… :-?

    But 4000 pages a month… sorry but I have a hard time in believing. And I don’t mean reading this post, the TV guide, or a school textbook, but pure reading.



  • wow reading the school textbook lol i havnt done that since 6th grade lol



  • TG, i spent about 2 hours on a train each day… and even i read an english book i get up to 100+ pages easily. Doesn’t count for weekends, of course…

    Heya Fin, good to see you again !

    Especially that you have to read starting from issue #1 to understand the storyline 😄 😉

    Sure you do? :roll: Must be an easy read…



  • 200 Pages in 2 hours isn’t unbelievable. If I’m into a book, I can read 400 pages in 3 hours.



  • @TG:

    4000 pages per month… sure… :roll:

    its just 133.3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333……etc. a day. 2 hours reading



  • 133 pages in two-hours? What books were you’re reading?



  • its just 133.3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333……etc. a day. 2 hours reading

    ha ha ! You see, that’s why i hate our sytem on base 10, in a base 12 system, 133.3333333333333 (inf) would be B1.4 (were B is the number for XI (11)). Far more simple…

    hmmmm… i’m completely out of reality here no ?



  • well, 133 1/3 is not so unreasonable . . . .

    Just try to get a new babylonian empire up and running, and you’d be happier there, Fin 🙂
    And your mathematician… what do you care about reality 😉 ;)?



  • I made a base 7 number system
