    What are you reading right now?
    A wise man once said you can never have to many threads about books. So what are you reading right now? Currently I am not reading anything except for the computer screen. :p

    So what are you reading?

    I'm in the process of re-reading 'Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim' by David Sedaris. It's pretty funny, a bit off-beat, but that's how I like my humor.

    I just finished Antigone and I am almost done with Othello. I hope the next thing I have to read is somewhat more interesting.

    Currently "Only Revolutions" by Mark Z. Danielewski and "Thus Spake Zarathustra" by Friedrich Nietzsche. Both pretty hard going to be honest but rewarding all the same, just wish I'd chosen one "heavy" and one "light" but never mind. Only Revolutions is crazy, very hard to describe but if you've read House of Leaves (If not then I recommend, not for everyone but I really liked it) you'll understand how much Danielewski likes to play with style and structure - in OR you actually have 2 books telling the same story in different time-scales from the perspective of either Sam or Hailey and read 8 pages each, alternating between the 2. And it's all written in prose. Fun!

    In the queue at the minute are:
    The Bell Jar, Dice man, Lolita, and various Nietzsche starting with "the Antichrist". I also want to re-read "House of Leaves".

    Sebastian. seriously. if you ever need a place to stay in minnesota, you've got an open invitation.


    i used to read a lot in high school and college, and it's gone so way down hill from there. i've got a few things started for months now that i need to get back into:

    "the culture of fear: why americans are afraid of the wrong things" by barry glassner

    "the lucifer principle: a scientific expedition into the forces of history" by howard k. bloom

    "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" by mark haddon

    "talk to the hand: the utter bloody rudeness of the world today, or six good reasons to stay home and bolt the door" by lynne truss (of eats, shoots & leaves fame)

    and many issues of sierra club magazine, car and driver, paste, and wired.

    I have my school finals in 8 weeks. For that, we have to read 10 books in german, 4 english and 4 french.

    Here's a pick from my list:

    Goethe - Werther
    Horvath - Jugend ohne Gott
    Frisch - Homo Faber
    Hohler - Die Karawane am Boden des Milchkruges
    Gaarder - Das Kartengeheimnis

    Sartre - Huis Clos
    Molière - Le Misanthrope

    Oscar Wilde - Picture of Dorian Gray
    Steinbeck - Of Mice and Men
    Poe - Selected Tales


    I have to (re)read all of them by the end of May.
