    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.

    The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell

    Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office
    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    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.

    Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. I'm almost finished.
    Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere

    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.

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

    Recently finished "Who's in Charge? Free Will and the Science of the Brain" by Michael S. Gazzaniga. Now starting on "Midnight's Children" by Salman Rushdie.
