At this point, Bran and Arya's stories intrigue me the most, with Jon and Tyrion as the the next most interesting. Dany is great and everything but I feel like her storyline is still very far away from making an impact in the politics of the storyline, she's just so far away from everyone and her dragons still aren't grown up.

Agreed, The Stand is an epic novel if you can stick with it. 2 other King favourites of mine are IT (the miniseries was such a let down) and The Tommyknockers.

Just finished Sartre's "Huis Clos" again. Just love it!


 


 


 


Back to reading trashy action thrillers. James Rollins is killing way too much of my time these days.

Quantum Evolution by Johnjoe McFadden


 


Issues like that totally fascinate me. Seriously thought-provoking stuff there. Great read!

I just realized I bought the damn GoT books for my kindle and now I can't fucking finish reading them until I buy another fucking Kindle. 

 

Is there no way to get things you've bought for your kindle on a computer? Like you can with the itunes store.

Read these over the summer:


 


Money - Martin Amis - Kind of like a British take on American Psycho without the mindless murder, and not so consumer ridden. Top book though, unadulterated descriptions of the depravity of the movie business, but also featuring a protagonist I could relate to in so far as he's about as British as they come. Great descriptions of both London and New York, and it was fun noticing places I'd been to.


 


One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez - Well this goes without saying, one of the best books I've ever read. So descriptive, so poignant, so touching, so insightful, so magical. Everything you could need is in this book. Love, hate, war, peace, gypsies, wizards, murder, incest - but it's all so damn beautiful. One you must read!


 


The Trial - Franz Kafka - Strange book...I literally just put it down about 15 minutes ago. The crime is never revealed, nor does the protagonist know what it is. It's a strange allegory I think, but for what? I'm not sure. Really well written, and certainly creepy in the way that only Kafka can be creepy.

Pretty Little Killers, about the murder of Skylar Neese. I've been obsessed with the case for two years now, so the book is kind of a conclusion. In any case, from my obsessed perspective the book is flawed, even amateurish at times, but still well worth reading, especially if the material is all new to you.

I think I'm 75% through Travis Barker's book ... too bored to finish; for the most part it's boring. I don't care about the women ge fucked, drugs he did or whatever else he did. I was interested in the Blink shit and it it wasn't as tell all as I had hoped and its written like a 7th grade essay. Done.

I started a book on the Enfield Haunting and then decided to read Timeline. Anyone else pick up anything good lately?

I'm reading Chuck Palahniuks Damned.

I bought an ereader off a bootleg second hand electronics vendor, and the girl left all her books on it. It's pretty good so far.

I'm reading a book on Nevada's mining history right now. I'm really into abandoned mine exploring and I'm reading this book to find new mines for my dad and I to explore next summer!

I started 1984 recently. I really need to break this habit of not finishing books though.


 


I tried reading Lovecraft's book of short horror stories (mountains of madness, Cthullu, etc.) and I pretty much need my phone to decipher every other word. You definitely learn some new vocabulary but it really make it a chore to read. That or a thesaurus.
