I've been meaning to read The Magic Mountain for like three years now. But for some reason, something else always catches my eye. Also, I heard it was boring, but my Dad strongly recommended it to me and he's usually dead on when he recommends books to me.

People have recommended the Charles Schultz bio. It's something I think I'd like but I haven't tracked it down yet.

I just mean I haven't bothered tracking it down. Sorry. It's not a novel, either, is it. Sorry for going off track.

In reality, I read so many literary novels as an English minor that I can't think of many "serious" novels I still need or want to read. Which is one reason I do a lot of re-reading.

I somehow missed out on The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and have always been curious about whether it's a good read. Again, not a novel, but interesting?

Their whole attitude was boorish. Let me rebel against my middle-class upbringing. Sorry, they do not appeal to me.

I always want to read that one, but they never have it. Another book, that was funny as hell was The Raw Shark Texts.

studying literature will kill your love of reading, i'm afraid.

Going back to Kafka, I wouldn't call him a young person's author. Not to say I'm very far from "young". Even Metamorphosis is so multi-layered... When I was younger I enjoyed it, sort of, for its mildly funny and desperate tone, but now, several years later, it feels much more impressive than it ever did. Obviously, Kafka's talent is in writing the indescribable, but the older I get and the more I reflect on his stuff, the more I realize how epically indescribable the Metamorphosis is. Not a word of it means what it says. It's all a singular "thing" that most young people won't appreciate until they're older, even if they know the concept. Read something like Josephine the Singer, or the Judgement, and try to take it in as a single word. It's fucking intense.

Has anyone read House of Leaves? It's pretentious as hell, but the guy is as talented as he thinks he is. One of my favorites. I recommend adding it to everyone's list. At least for a look.

I must come across as fantastically misanthropic if I come across as elderly at the sprightly age of 26. Winner!

Otherwise I agreed with the post.

There's an article in the most recent issue of radical philosophy about Josephine the piper, I'd recommend it to Kafka types.
