The Great Gatsby, and I am surprised to find the same kind of atmosphere I like in Jeffrey Eugenides.

Before that came Jonathan Coe's latest, which bored me and tasted like still water.

In between was a comic book by one of my craves, Pixel Vengeur :

The Big Short by Michael Lewis, which is a terribly pedestrian account of the financial crisis, but a quick read none the less.

My roommate was kind enough to get me a copy of The Magus by John Fowles, which I'll start after I finish this program in June.

psch, they are all free in project gutenberg at this point, do a search. which means they also should be on dover thrift editions or similar imprints.

they should also be (free) in the amazon kindle store. so you can download the files to a kindle or kindle reader software (in your computer) to make them more readable.

i read him aaaages ago-- voyage to the center of the earth, 20,000 leagues under the sea, from the earth to the moon, etc.

you got no library card? that shit *should* be there if you don't want to read in the computer.

-----

EDIT: i read in a hurry and i thought you were having trouble finding them.

so you WANT TO have trouble finding them? that's easily accomplished-- you're in LA. good luck sweating!

Rowan Williams - Silence and Honey cakes; the wisdom of the desert.

Not what I wanted it to be, but as ever a lovely piece of writing from dear Row.

Rowan Williams is quite clearly one of the good uns. Unfortunately he has to weave his views around the inconsistancies and stupidities of his idiotic religion.

Was curious if anyone here has read the Ryu Murakami novel of "Audition". The book was adapted into a pretty well known japanese horror film. If you seen the movie is the book still worth a read? Without going into detail, is the movie pretty faithful to the book or are there differences in the book that are worth appreciating?

I finished "Neuromancer" and really enjoyed it. I'm going to read "Carrion Comfort" by Dan Simmons next.
