I talked to me Dad today who told me he was pricing a first edition/first printing of that book (In Danish or whatever the original language was) because the author died recently and only wrote 3 books. Singed by the translator (not even the author) it was going for $7,000.

well that is a big amount...
Yes it has been in the news here in the North (Denmark, Sweden, Norway) about the death.. Apparently Stig Larson (the author)'s family didn't want his girlfriend through many years to get even a penny of all the money he left... because she was only a girlfriend and not a wife..

Absalom, Absalom! is more difficult, but I enjoyed it a lot more.

Choke-Chuck Palahniuk

I got this book forever ago but left it at my parents house, retrieved it last time i went home but was in the middle of reading Silence of The Lambs. I'm very excited to read this book. Next I get off my fat ass and go to the library and get a library card so i don't spend all my money on books this summer.

I've wanted to read this- you liked it?

Right now I've got my nose in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy as well as Stephen King's Gunslinger (Dark Tower I)

Memories, Dreams, Reflections by Carl G. Jung. :) So far I really like the book, especially the part about his time at school and younger years. I'm also reading some other books, but I have to think about which it were. I believe some book about philosophy and 'eating animals' by Jonathan S. Foer.

Einstein: His Life and Universe, by Walter Isaacson. Jock recommended it to me! So far, I'm really enjoying it. However, I managed to get the large print version :( The bf thinks this is endlessly fun.

As usual, I'm in the middle of several. And taking forever to finish any, since I keep getting distracted by things I can read on the internet.

Loneliness: Human Nature and the Need for Social Connection by John Cacciopo and William Patrick

The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb

The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite by David Kessler (Ha! The book I've got says, "...Insatiable North American Appetite" on the cover, but the word 'North' isn't there on Amazon. Exact same cover otherwise.)

Rainer Maria Rilke: Letter's to a Young Poet

I love Rilke's poems (don't tell the guys over at INTPc :unsure: ) She also has some outstandingly on point quotes.

"A person isn't who they are during the last conversation you had with them - they're who they've been throughout your whole relationship."

"For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation."

"It is good to be solitary, for solitude is difficult; that something is difficult must be a reason the more for us to do it."
