    I'm reading Twelve by Jasper Kent its like Tolstoy crossed with Bram Stoker only more popular and less literary, Napoleonic wars with vampires which are still the unnatural emodiment of evil that vampires where before Ann Rice. Very good book, I may read the sequels quite inspite of myself, I'd not intended to get into another series but there you go.

    What Type Am I?
    by Renee Baron

    MBTI book. Clear but very basic. The reason I got it is that it is one of the few MBTI books in ebook format. Little over 100 pages. I essentially finished in one sitting and I am a very slow reader.

    Good choice for someone who has had little or no exposure to MBTI or high school students for that group it would be a 8 out of 10 but for me it was a 5 1/2 out of 10

    Nothing to be ashamed of Rilke has a beautiful style.

    And by the way, René Karl Wilhelm Johann Josef Maria Rilke, better known as Rainer Maria Rilke, was a dude. Maybe that makes your predelection slightly more acceptable for the INTP bunch...

    Sorry, that was the pedant inside speaking.

    To see a world in a grain of sand,
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    And eternity in an hour

    The Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde by ... well, Oscar Wilde.

    Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion.
    That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.
    Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

    Spook Country, Absalom, Absalom!, and a book on Moroccan Arabic are the ones I've started recently.
