Note: NYYRC Book Exchange

At last Thursday’s monthly meeting of the NYYRC, club member R.D. Ferman recommended starting a Republican/conservative book exchange.

As a complement to this idea, the blog committee has offered to create a discussion pages for books that are being read by our members.  If you have any requests for books, please feel free to comment at the bottom of this page and the Blog committee will create an online discussion forum.

Reading what the greats have said before us is the best way to sharpen our political wits and instincts, and learn much about human history and human nature at the same time.  Some authors jolt you from complacency; others edify and direct; many do both, and more.

If I may be permitted to recommend the last 2 books I’ve had the pleasure to read:

H.L. Mencken’s Notes on Democracy and,

Albert Jay Nock’s Memoirs of a Superfluous Man

This period of authors did criticism very well.
