Each year I set a goal to read more and am making good on it, for once. In the past month I finished William Goldman's Magic and H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man. Next, I crack Stephen King's It, finally.

And yes, my next goal is to read a book that has yet to be adapted into a film.

I read IT last October. I never read him as a young person so when I read them now, they aren't actually scary but I do like a good story.

Also, invisible man is good!

Yeah, same. I've also seen most of the adaptations, so it's all old hat to me at this point (saw OG Pet Sematary in theaters when I was 5...). Still, his writing and storytelling is top-shelf and the more of his I read, the more I get "it".

I'm still reading Guns, Germs, and Steel for fun (barely on page 220 or some shit). But I read two books last quarter for school--one by Paolo Friere and another by Ivan Ilich.

On Friday I bought a book called Negroes with Guns and another called Mornings in Mexico by D.H Lawrence.

I read all the Dark Tower and it was p cool

it never gets as surreal and senscesent as the first book but I'd say it's worth going through the whole series

FoolofaTook 04-22-2019 10:50 AM

En Taro Tassadar!!

FoolofaTook 04-22-2019 02:08 PM

i dunno elphenour, i read 3 & 4 (wastelande and glass and witch or something) and it was alright but not really on point). didnt make me want to read anymore.

gotta say i think king is better in small doses.

ovary 04-22-2019 03:18 PM

i just read in the arms of the senecas. next up drums along the mohawk. first book ive read for pleasure in awhile.

Alice 05-18-2019 01:42 PM

Just started Crime and Punishment. This is my first Dostoyevsky. This book has an upsetting amount of underlining from a previous owner

FoolofaTook 05-18-2019 01:44 PM

hell yeah tyler! i hope you enjoy it.

you're welcome!

I think you'll find the added emphasis really does improve your overall reading experience.

Alice 06-25-2019 08:16 PM

i've spent a lot of commutes this summer doing crosswords...tough ones.i got the book at half price books and none of them were even started. super great deal. and they are seriously no joke.

working remotely was great when i was still in school and teaching esl on mondays and needed the flexibility, but everything is on a summer break except for work so i'm home a lot and i'm so bored. i need to do something with my life until september.
