    Reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, started it a long time ago but my ADD must have got me distracted by another book.

  • after successfully avoiding the hunger games for years, i finally have had to start reading it for my english class. it's not as bad as i thought it would be, but it's pretty bad. it's not poorly written or anything, i guess, it's just annoying.

    Yeah, university is really keeping me away from Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy at the moment. I'm kind of butchering it by reading a few pages like once a week. The prose is pretty awesome though.

    And Another Thing...



    Normally i'd be upset, with a modern author writing a sequel to sacred texts like Hitchhiker's Guide...

    But Eoin Colfer is one of the finest writers out there. Ireland's answer to Douglas Adams

    (...And it also has Adam's wife's blessing).

    Absolutely awe-inspiring reading. Its not often I come across animals I haven't already heard of, but this book has plenty.

    I have to confess I didn't enjoy this one very much. I got about a 1/4 of the way through it before losing interest.

  • Currently reading this



    After I've finished that I'll be reading this next


  • Trying to read two books at once: Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne and Pretty Birds by Scott Simon (I've already read both but I felt like reading them again).
