    The Magic Mountain, stopped halfway through, when I realized that I read it in fifth grade.

    Just finished up The Shining starting on Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson.

    I've been struggling to pick books up lately so I'm just going through as much easily digestible stuff as possible. Shining was the first time I've read anything by Stephen King aside from On Writing. I had also never seen a movie adaptation of one of his books, so I threw the shining movie on directly after finishing the book.

    The movie was dog shit terrible in my opinion, but you just can't transfer the psychological aspect of the book all that well, I think. Most of the book is in everyone's own head which is impossible without some shitty narration decisions in a movie.

    Revisited A Catcher in the Rye for the first time since I was probably 21 or 22 I think.

    Book did not hold the weight it once did.

    What do you mean by "however adjusted"?

    *Edit, well, that was weird. A spammer that actually made an interesting contribution. And then got deleted and banned.

    D'oh!
