I haven't taken it with me on vacation since it's in two physical volumes, but I can say that Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun starts off pretty well, for anyone who's interested in "literary" fantasy.
M is for Magic a collection of short stories by Neil Gaiman. It's turned out to be just what I was expecting when I bought it - different, interesting, thought provoking stories. The quote in my signature (I'll put it below because I change my signature so much) was in the introduction, and I could relate to that completely. Time will tell, but I believe some of his stories in this book will be those stories. As I have nothing but good to say about this one, I'm going to seek out more of his books as soon as I can and check them out.
Stories you read when you're the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you'll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.
More book hoarding: bought two books by Jane Urquhart that I absolutely don't need. I'm Teflon for books.
I've been catching up on political manifestos and social diatribe... then getting distracted by reading student reports and term papers... which tend to be significantly more fun than professors desperate for tenure or a guest spot as a news commentator. A review of classic french drama, modern korean pop pulp novels, the readling lists from st. john's (both schools and the eastern program) St. John’s College | Academic Program | Santa Fe Reading List just to be a social dick... and for fun comic memoirs or the scattering of personal stories in a few of my favorite cookbooks.
Is book hoarding a trait that should maybe be added to the list of INTP traits? A kind of metaphorical information-gathering.
Now reading Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande; a third for work, a third for school, and a third for pleasure.
hey how is albert einstein's relativity book? I have to do an analytical reading on it and i was just wondering if you remember the major parts of this story or what you think i should definitely remember/know about this book.
