    I've never really read many travel books before but I like Paul Theroux so I thought I would buy all of his books and I'm currently on this one. I would imagine some Brits don't care for this particular book.

    Kingdom By the Sea: Paul Theroux: 9780241110867: Amazon.com: Books


    Michael Totten also technically writes "travel" books but his are different. This is one of my favorites.

    Where the West Ends: Stories from the Middle East, the Balkans, the Black Sea, and the Caucasus: Michael J. Totten: 9781475183641: Amazon.com: Books
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    The amount of reading material for school this semester qualifies as "college rape" (one 200/500-page book per weekday).

    Besides that, today in the subway (my "leisure" reading time) I've started Les Mots et les Choses by Foucault (in French and Spanish is "The Words and the Things", in English I believe it's The Order of Things).

    I finished A Midsummer Night's Dream today and I now know I am in a way that Old Nedar's Helena.
    East of Eden was very recently begun on that closing. There is good promise there it would so far seem.

    Fanfiction.
    I’ve always been watching you.
    I’ve been watching you, to take in everything about you.
    But instead, everything about you has devoured me.
    How did I seem to you on the verge of my downfall?

    Just finished The Trap by Sir James Goldsmith. Written almost 25 years ago, it was so predictive of our world today.

    Well worth the read, with very insightful words on topics ranging from globalization, factory farming, to nuclear power.

    Sir James was a billionaire and a politican, among other things. Various YouTubes are available from him as well. Dead almost 20 years, almost like a voice from the grave....
    “Orthodoxy means not thinking--not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”
    ― George Orwell, 1984

    “It is clear that thought is not free if the profession of certain opinions makes it impossible to earn a living. It is clear also that thought is not free if all the arguments on one side of a controversy are perpetually presented as attractively as possible, while the arguments on the other side can only be discovered by diligent search.”

    ― Bertrand Russell, Sceptical Essays

    Read This Side of Paradise as I begin a venture into the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald. I also have a short story collection of his thanks to the true wonder that is a library card.

    Dune, by Frank Herbert.

    Which, I have learned, is just as great as everyone says it is. It's a classic for a reason.
