This weekend, I finally broke down and bought Ayn Rand's book, Atlas Shrugged on audio CD (which I ripped onto my iPod). This book is huge! It requires 42 CDs and results in something like 51 hours of reading and runs about $67.00. I love getting read to, and for Rand's books, I feel it is almost essential. Plus, I live in New York City, and us New Yorkers do a ton of walking. Walking is time I can't read... but it sure is time I can get read to :)
On top of the fact that I think The Fountain Head is one of the best books ever written, Atlas Shrugged has special meaning to me because it was my late father's favorite book of all time. He was a huge Ayn Rand fan, and judging from The Fountain Head, I can see why. I hope that through Atlas Shrugged I can not only feel inspired, but feel a little closer to my dad, feel what he felt, see the world the way he saw the world.
Anyway, one CD down, 41 more to go!
