    Hey gents,

    Currently I’m working my through morals and dogma which although a small book is very dense, I’m enjoying it greatly but make sure Im not distracted in the slightest when reading as it can be a little challenging at times.

    How about you?

    We are a Cipher state.

    My duties as Junior Warden have me reading said book!

    Yes, I'm being a sarcastic pita!

    Based on another thread... I went and downloaded an app that reads pdf's to me. I have around 200ish digital books (mostly freemasonry related) so I am quiet thrilled for my commutes!

    As far as hardcover, Just started The Corpus Hermeticum by GRS Mead.

    "A Brother Asks" by Brother John S. Nagy. I highly recommend it.

    Whether it's Masonic or not could be argued, but I'm currently reading The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall.

    It could be argued... but the side that says it is would be the correct one! ;)

    The author wasn’t a Mason when he wrote it and Masonry is but a single chapter, so how can the book be Masonic? (Devil’s advocate moment.)

    I hope you're using DeHoyos's annotated version. It's still a challenging read, but it makes much more sense with Art's notes.

    I'm currently reading the 2017 transactions of the Quatuor Coronati Correspondence Circle, Ars Quatuoro Coronatorum.

    Nope, just the standard version.
    Lots of info and a lot of lateral thinking

    By who's measure are we using for what qualifies and what does not? Yours? Mine? Scottish rite says its usually their most requested book. How about let's use this masonic Book publisher's opinion if it is a Masonic book lol:

    I was trying to convey humor on the earlier post. I think you wanted a debate now that I re-read your post. if so I apologize... it's been a long day.

    Nope. As I said I was playing devil’s advocate and raising the opposition just because.
