Re: What y'all readin'?


Currently, I'm rereading Dracula and thoroughly reading (rather than just skimming like I did last semester) The Lonely Girl by Edna O'Brien. I've loved Dracula since I was 12, and I'm really enjoying The Lonely Girl so far, although I'm sort of over-empathizing with the central character (she was described as a "literary fat girl" by one of the more piggish male characters in chapter one, and I found myself sharing in her righteous indignation maybe a little bit too much). When I'm done with those, I promised a friend I woe read Atonement, which I'm really, really looking forward to, and the second I have enough time to devote the deserved concentration to it, I fully intend to immerse myself in D i c k ensia. emoticon

Re: What y'all readin'?


I'm currently reading a German book about 9/11 conspiracy theories. Interesting stuff, I've now read several books about it and am totally convinced that the official version of the events is a fraud. There are way too many coincidences and strange events surrounding that day.

Time for a little survey, what do my fellow Burbanites think about 9/11? Do you follow the official version or do you also believe there is something wrong with it?

I'm currently reading a book called The Center Cannot Hold by Elyn S. Saks. It's an autobiography by a lady with schizophrenia, which is research for a screenplay I'm writing. This is the 7th book about schizophrenia that I've read so far, and it's definitely the best of those 7.

That sounds really interesting. The only book I've read about mental illness is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, and that one had me in tears.

UPDATE: I momentarily shelved Dracula and The Lonely Girl to read Atonement (because I have no willpower in the face of a new book). Oh my God, so beautiful but so, SO devastating.

I've lost count of the number of books I've abandoned when I've got something new that I can't resist. The worst part is when you have a great book that you forget to ever go back to. I've got way too many unfinished good books...

I always finish book at all costs, even when I hate them emoticon On the one hand there might come a turn when the book nonetheless suddenly becomes good. On the other hand I'm one of these "I paid for it and now I'm finishing it" - guys.

Yeah, I have a really tough time not finishing a book, no matter how much I don't like it.

Re: What y'all readin'?


I recently purchased five new books, none of which I've read.
-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
-Alice in Wonderland by Louis Carrol
-The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
-The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
-Salem's Lot by Stephen King

I started with The Name of the Wind because I was in the mood for a good fantasy novel.
