Thread: What'cha Reading?

    I'm currently reading The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
    True accounts of the lives of two men who both lived around the late 19th century. One was the driving force behind the architecture and engineering of the 1983 Chicago World's Fair, the other took the fair as an opportunity to open a hotel just west of it to lure young women in to murder them. The juxtaposition of great human achievement with unbridled evil makes for a really compelling read and it's the first book in the longest time that I actually look forward to reading again when I have to take a break.

    I'm posting the cover design too because I think it's so good. It really evokes the atmosphere within.
    I don't wanna!

    I just finished that one in April. Better than expected.

    The life of the Polish poet, Czeslaw Milosz, has come to an end.

    Here is his poem, "On the Day the World Ends".

    At the moment I’m progressing through a selection of Beckett novels, re-reading Nietzsche's oeuvre, and studying for Exams.
    One by one, over the months, the other bulbs burn out, and are gone. The first few of these hit Byron hard. He's still a new arrival, still hasn't accepted his immortality. But on through the burning hours he starts to learn about the transience of others: learns that loving them while they're here becomes easier, and also more intenseóto love as if each design-hour will be the last.

    Daniel Deronda by George Eliot. It's awesome so far.

    King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa -- Adam Hochschild

    Very good book. Obviously grim subject matter, but well written.

    I like a good read. Unfortunately, I don't find them that often. I don't like fiction much, so that eliminates half the book store.
