I'm not much of a reader, but I'm reading this for my English class, and I recommend this book to everyone. So funny.

i feel the same way at some points, but at others im like, woah, this is totally how i feel. it is hard reading a book that was written so long ago, but it is shocking how somethings are totally the same.

Super old book about the history of math that my pre-calc professor let me borrow. It's fascinating.

Quinn basically expands on ideas from previous books/other random topics in this book. Almost done reading all his books. Favorite author.

I'm not going to quote all of the posts I'd like to respond to, would take too long.


Item 1. It seems like Breakfast of Champions is always in one of the first two or three posts in these threads.

Item 2. Bob Dylan's Chronicles: Sucks.

Item 3. Walden took me a longer time to read than any other book, ever. Even books twice its length. Don't get wrong, I loved it, but it's some dense, flowery shit, and it'll be a few years before I try reading it again.

Item 4. One Hundred Years of Solitude is so amazing. I haven't read it in years, but I've recently moved it back into my "to-read" stack.

Item 5. I bitch about Palahniuk in all of these threads, so I guess I'll get it out of the way now; I hate him.

Item 6. Tolstoy is wonderful. Hell's Angels is superb. James Fenmore Cooper's a joke. The Things They Carried is amazing, I just re-read it.

Item 7. My girlfriend got me All Over But the Shouting for X-Mas, and I read it that night. I really enjoyed the book. They're my favorite band.

Item 8. Motherfucking Knut Hamsun, it's so good to see someone else reading his stuff. My favorite Hamsun book is probably Pan, but I think Hunger was nearly just as life-changing.

I'm currently reading:



Just finished Tristessa, by Kerouac, and A Hero of Our Time, by Lermontov, which I'd recommend to anyone into bitterly romantic and cynical Russian literature, kinda like Pushkin.

Sorry for the overzealous post. The way I feel about books is pretty close to the obsessive way I feel about music.
