The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa.
Its...interesting. Not what I expected. From what I was told I expected the ravings of a mad man. He seems very..peaceful.

At the mo A History Of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell. Now I wish I was studying Ancient Greek arghghgh.
Just read The Poisonwood Bible. Very evocative and such beautiful turns of phrase.
@Mr. TickTock: That sounds really interesting.

Finally finished Bram Stoker's Dracula. Good god, how long did it take for me to read a single book? I'm losing my edge.
The book itself started out suspenseful, but I found it kind of boring for the most part. Anticlimactic, too. :/
For the record, I was reading L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Isabel Briggs Myers' Gifts Differing before that. I found the latter an useful introduction, but slightly lacking in some aspects.
Now, on to some Agatha Christie to close the summer vacation.Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah. I'm sure everyone has read urban fiction except me by now . . .
