    I will be reading speaker for the dead and xenocide (sequels to ender's game, by orson scott card) as soon as I get the initiative to pick them up at the library, where they're waiting for me.

    And also catch-22, when I pick it up, and also some book about string theory I'm struggling through, and I'm also 'reading' a book of "brain-exercises" or something like that. And I started reading a mindless Xanth book by piers anthony, but I got bored quickly. And I'm re-reading Redwall, too.

    (I like to read many books concurrently, as you can see. I get too bored of one book if it takes longer than one session to read)

    Kind of interested to see how it ends.

    Also reading A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore (kind of gaimen-esque) and Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.

    Reflections on the human condition by Eric Hoffer
    "At points of clarity, I realize that my life on earth is meaningless, and that I am merely a pawn in a bigger game. A game I cannot possibly understand or have control of. Thankfully, before depression sets in, I drift back into my cloudy, bewildered daily routine." **Joel Patrick Warneke**

    I just joined a "50 books in a year" challenge group on LibraryThing. As I state in my post, I think I probably read far more than that but it should be interesting to track them over the course of a year.

    Ah, I notice this is my first posting here. I've been lurking since the beginning but hadn't taken the plunge yet.

    Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon and Nordic culture roughly corresponding to fate. It is ancestral to Modern English weird, which has acquired a very different meaning.

    Chuck Palahniuk.


    EDIT - Here's my favorite review from amazon about Palahniuk's Choke:

    Chief Justice Brennan in 1957 described this book when he wrote the Roth decision and defined obscenity. When a work is utterly without redeeming social importance and when for the average person, applying contemporary community standards, the dominant theme of the material taken as a whole appeals to prurient interest, it is obscene. This book about a sex addict is marked by an immoderate and/or unwholesome interest in unusual sexual desire: the very definition of prurient. Choke could be subtitled: ' A Dictionary of Genitalia and Sexual Intercourse to Debase the Human Body and the Sex Act.'


    I... suppose. Yeah!
