Just bought two Onion books. One, the very first, that I lost ten years ago, and another one, "The Onion Book of Known Knowledge: A Definitive Encyclopaedia Of Existing Information"

I had to stop eating while I was reading them because I almost choked to death from laughter several times.

Just finished Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I thought it was fantastic ... and completely depressing. :boohoo:

Dirty Minds by Kayt Sukel. This book explores the neurochemistry behind love. It examines why women fall for bad boys, why marriages suffer after the birth of a child, how early neglect may lead to promiscuity, etc. Truly fascinating stuff.

I bought Runaway Horses by Yukio Mishima a couple of years ago. When I found out it was the second book of a tetralogy, I bought the first, Spring Snow, and decided to read it before I jumped at Runaway Horses.

About three years later, I'm finally almost finished with Spring Snow. The prose is good but... The story's halting at times. Runaway Horses seems to promise more fire and blood. /7w8

Also read Sun and Steel by the same guy. Really fascinating writer.

My dog is so sweet. Rumor has it, I read a book about how to train a dog to politely beg and do cute tricks. Since I haven't read the rumored book, I am obviously a natural dog whisperer and must begin writing my own book. I feel it is my duty to share this special gift.

I'm about 10 pages away from finishing Malone Dies by Samuel Beckett. It was kind of a difficult read for me, so I had to drag myself through the first 70 pages or so. It was worth it though--it get's pretty intense towards the end, which is cliche, but yeah. I'll probably have to give it another run-through.

Heavier Than Heaven, a Kurt Cobain biography. I'll come back and give it a 3-4 sentence review when I'm done. So far it seems really good.

Doktor Glas by Hjalmar Söderberg. It's a Swedish book, a classic really. I've already read it, but that was a long time ago. Rereading as I feel I'm now much more suited to read such a difficult book.

I'm reading "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. I'm so excited about this book as I got sucked in within 2 pages and it's so rare that a book draws me in like that... I had to exclaim this somewhere.

"I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud" by Wordsworth.

I just rediscovered this poem, but really like it and may try to set it.

I don't know what I want to read next. Any number of Carl Sagan books, a collection of Andy Rooney essays and observations, or Love in the Time of Cholera. Finally finished Ray Bradbury's a Medicine for Melancholy.

I'm a third through Christine Montross' "Falling Into the Fire". A psychiatrist presents half a dozen of the more interesting case studies of mental illness.
