I finished Sons and Lovers by DH Lawrence, then I read this book called The Surrendered and next I'm gonna read this book called The Men who Would be King about the formation of Dreamworks.

Can I just say that I LOVE that your pic is of Brendan Small, that is my favourite cartoon of ALL TIME!
I have a strange infirmity, which is nothing to those that know me.

I can never get into those joke books like Abraham Lincoln or Pride Prejudice and Zombies. The novelty wears off for me after a chapter and then I just notice terrible writing.


I'll admit i could never get into Pride Prejudice and Zombies but Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was a pretty fun book in my opinion.
I miss you, girl. You're all that makes me true.

It sure fucking is. Everybody I talk to that reads that book ends up shell-shocked for a month. Talk about brutal.
Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you.
It will set you free. Be more like the man you were made to be.
There is a design, an alignment, a cry of my heart to see
the beauty of love as it was meant to be.

Check out Blood Meridian by McCarthy. WAY more brutal, and probably a bit better.

"Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Safran Foer is my favorite book of all time, with "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey as a close second.

Just finished "The Sheltering Sky" by Paul Bowles and I'm about to start "Of Human Bondage" by W. Somerset Maugham.
HA! HA! HA! Show me what you got....

BLAH Somerset Maugham!!! Had to read a book by him in an English class. It was funny because the teacher commented how many people thought the sex scene in the book was very awkward. The sex scene was between a man and a woman but Maugham was gay so it was kinda obvious he was iffy on the details of how a straight sex scene goes down.
Self-inflicted or not, I find myself on the farthest star, foreign to everything like I woke up with a German tongue.
