Just finished some Schoupenhaur essay's, and 'A quest for Origin's' by Kerry Howe(a NZ history book).
Also 'Child of God' by Cormac Mc'Carthy -- really good, in a twisted psychotic kind of way.
Now reading 'Less than Zero' by Bret Easton Ellis, and 'A Encyclopedia of Classical, Celtic and Nordic Mythology.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 intense—to love as if each design-hour will be the last.

Dress Codes by Noelle Howey
Church History in Plain Language by Bruce L. Shelley"Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
â€śPleasure to me is wonderâ€”the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.â€ť ~ H.P. Lovecraft
