    Tell, and describe if its good or not. Reading is good for you!

    Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostovesky (Very good. Very intense and heavy reading. For you self depricating intellectuals).

    Dubliners by James Joyce (Very good. Very heavy as well... Collection of short stories).

    Gotta read Dubliners again someday when I'm smarter. Its the kind of book.. (well Joyce is the kind of author) that you will find a bunch of new things everytime you read it.


    Man and his Symbols by CG Jung.

    Its about mans faculty for creating symbols. CG Jung relates to this through his intense dream analysis and awesomely huge knowledge of mythology. Genius! Fascinating book, reccommended to everyone!

    I've had a lot of time on my hands.

    been meaning to read notes from underground for a while.

    currently reading:

    notes to myself - hugh prather
    this book is ridiculous. i just want to beat prather about the face and head with it. imagine deep thoughts that aren't funny, but sound more like stoner babble that you think is deep when you're high, but is just idiotic when you aren't. a friend of mine told me it was so bad that it was funny. i'm not laughing yet.

    if on a winter's night a traveler - italo calvino
    awesome. i love this book so far. i love it. awesome.

    the complete short stories of ernest hemingway
    i mean, come on... hemingway. it's a pretty good read.

    recently read:

    pale fire - vladimir nabokov
    a lot funnier than i thought it was going to be. fascinating novel. if you haven't read it, i guarantee that you've never read another novel like it. the same goes for the calvino novel i mentioned. i'm starting nabokov's lolita soon.

    ignorance - milan kundera
    i thought this book was awesome. first kundera i've read. the romantic and the bitter cynic in me were both satisfied with it when i was done. the book of laughter and forgetting is up to bat soon. ULB is gonna have to wait till the summer though.

    death sentence - maurice blanchot
    very strange. i guess this would go in the french existential type of style? like camus... but i found this way stranger. (no pun intended, honestly.) plot? heh.. not necessarily. it took a bit of explanation and a second reading for me to understand what was going on, but it was pretty cool once i understood.
