      I started to read The Name of the Wind but gave up. I might try again but I'm going to focus on one book.

      I just recently reread The Name of the Wind and the sequel A Wise Man's Fear, the first one is a little frustrating and slow to start but it gets better .

      I'm currently reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King. 600 pages in and WOW(!), it's almost impossible to put it down. King is one of very few authors who manage to create characters that I actually care for. Guess I will continue to cry through the rest of the night

      The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, by Phillip K. Dick.
      I just finished it. It's... ah, it sounds newer than 1964, when it was written. It's like if Douglas Adams wrote a dark, coherent book without making it dark.
      or something

      I'm stuck between finishing Charles Baudelaire's The Flowers of Evil and picking up a certain Patrick Rothfuss book.

      Maybe I'll just re-read the Silmarillion...

      Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably cant. You know the month, the year, the day of the week; you have a schedule, a calendar... Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
      A fear of time running out.

      I started reading the Luann comic strip from the beginning with the intention of reading every strip. Luann Comic Strip, March 17, 1985 on GoComics.com

      I'm almost up to 1988.

      It centers around a girl named Luann and her friends and family. It the beginning, she's 13, but as the strip has gone on she's slowly aged. I think she's 18 or 19 right now. It's pretty entertaining!

      You just read the strip and press the single right arrow button to move to the next strip, repeating this 11,000+ times to read the whole thing. A new strip is still being released every day.

      To Have or to Be. By Erich Fromm. A very enlightening book that gives some perspective of our personal self-worth as humans or the things we have. I didn't have any expectations out of this book, more than that it sounded interesting. I would recommend it to anyone who might want to get to know them selfs in a different light.


      Here is an interview with Erich Fromm, about his book: To Have or to Be?

      I recently finished volume 1 of the Gulag Archipelago and it is a magnificent work. Intensely harrowing and terrifying stuff, but brilliantly written. Will have to pick up volume 2 soon. I have just started reading Notes From Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky (The Constance Garnett translation I have a pdf of the Pevear translation to read after to compare). It is pretty dense and stilted but I hope the other translation is better. The concepts discussed are great though. I have a slew of Dostoevsky books lined up, crime and punishment and the brothers karamzov next in my list. I have a lot of reading to do this summer lol, also have some Nietzsche and Jung to read.

      I just finished Crime and Punishment and it is unbelievable. Hands down the best book I have ever read. Dostoevsky is a genius. Time to start The Brothers Karamazov now, I've heard it is even better.

      I'm currently in the middle of The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've heard all kinds of good things about the new series based on it, but would like to read first before I watch. I'm disappointed anytime I do the opposite because I end up picturing the acted scenes while I'm reading, instead of conjuring my own images of things.

      I'm reading Dreaming Through Darkness by Charlie Morley and trying to read The Name of the Wind again. The dreaming book I'm reading seems right up my alley. I hope to stick with both books and finish them.
