Just finished Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. Very well written and emotionally frank, but kind of depressing at times. Or maybe it's just me. :thinking: Also, Four-ish as hell.

catching up on my newspaper and magazine
subscriptions. just simply amazing to have
everything digitized and all in one place.

I've been rereading the Wheel of Time series. I'm halfway through the third book, The Dragon Reborn.

To be honest, rereading the series makes me impressed with just how much Jordan had planned out since book 1. Very subtle things you wouldn't get your first time reading through.

I am reading the poems of Arthur Rimbaud. And I know I can't write like Arthur if I write in the language of common sense, so I need to abandon my common sense and fall in love with the intrinsic beauty of language, just like Arthur.

My INFP friend gave me his well-loved copy of A Season in Hell & Illuminations a few yrs back. Good translation. I recommend it to anyone who likes his work.

Wolves of the Calla (The Dark Tower) by Stephen King. Just as slow of a read as last time, hm.

A shoo-in for the Booker? Awusha-awusha. It gets my vote.
A-maze-ing.

Just finished this:

It was kind of dumb. Interesting concept, but not well written.

I'm also reading this:

which is fine but getting a bit dull,

and re-reading this:
