I'm about 10 pages away from finishing Malone Dies by Samuel Beckett. It was kind of a difficult read for me, so I had to drag myself through the first 70 pages or so. It was worth it though--it get's pretty intense towards the end, which is cliche, but yeah. I'll probably have to give it another run-through.

Heavier Than Heaven, a Kurt Cobain biography. I'll come back and give it a 3-4 sentence review when I'm done. So far it seems really good.

Doktor Glas by Hjalmar Söderberg. It's a Swedish book, a classic really. I've already read it, but that was a long time ago. Rereading as I feel I'm now much more suited to read such a difficult book.

I'm reading "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. I'm so excited about this book as I got sucked in within 2 pages and it's so rare that a book draws me in like that... I had to exclaim this somewhere.06/13 10:51:03 five sounds: you!!!
06/13 10:51:08 shortnsweet: no you!!
06/13 10:51:12 shortnsweet: go do your things and my things too!

Newton's Cannon by Gregory Keyes."But you forget that there is one value that is greater than all others: human freedom. Because no matter how perfectly you set the world up for humanity, they will always rebel simply to exert their own selves. You cannot win."

"I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud" by Wordsworth.
I just rediscovered this poem, but really like it and may try to set it.

The Age of Reason by Jean-Paul Sartre. I like it so far.

I don't know what I want to read next. Any number of Carl Sagan books, a collection of Andy Rooney essays and observations, or Love in the Time of Cholera. Finally finished Ray Bradbury's a Medicine for Melancholy.Jarlaxle: fact checking this thread makes me want to go all INFP on my wrists

I'm a third through Christine Montross' "Falling Into the Fire". A psychiatrist presents half a dozen of the more interesting case studies of mental illness.Don't hate me because I'm right and you're not.
