    The Silent Don

    It's about Santo Trafficante Jr.
    "You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."

    Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office
    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    Mainly, I am reading The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood, but there are a few others floating around (The Glass Bead Game by Hesse, Reading Lolita in Tehran).

    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.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—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.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    This is going a couple pages back, but I love Russian literature. Seems like almost every book has a depressing ending, but they are so well-written that I can't help but love them. Ever read Doctor Zhivago by Pasternak or Anna Karenina by Tolstoy? They're both excellent. Right now I'm working on The Idiot by Dostoevsky and I'm planning on reading War and Peace by Tolstoy.
