    Going to start reading The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Just finished both On Writing and Carrie by Stephen King today, something that I find rather amusing.

    I just finished Wuthering Heights. I enjoyed it quite a bit and the ending is nice and creepy.

    Ever since I got a Kindle, I've been taking advantage of the free classics. Just a few weeks ago, I finished reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Now, I'm working on Don Quixote. I never had much of an opinion on classic literature, but I'm really starting to change my mind.

    I've been meaning to get into the Sherlock Holmes stories recently. A question though, how's it like reading it, in terms of pace and entertainment? Not that it'll change whether or not I choose to read it, but just curious.

    Currently still working my way through Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Almost done with Fantine, and it's quite interesting seeing Jean ValJean develop.

    I read that, too. To me, the Earth's Children series started to decline with Plains of Passage. I appreciate getting immersed into a book through the scenery, but Auel went a little overboard. Plus, she recaps the plot of the previous books a little too much. I can understand why, since there was such a big gap between the books' releases. But, I read them one after another, and it got really annoying.

    basically I agree, 3 first books were much better, especially "The Clan of the Cave Bear", but it took me about 3 months to finish the Plains, that book sure got some unnecessary scenes - it could be good 200 pages shorter, Shelters aren't that bad though, only too much of the recaps. I still have last book to go.

    About to start Michael Crichton's signature novel, Jurassic Park. I remember renting it in a library some 4 years ago and reading it then, but it's always nice to refresh my memory after so long.

    Novel I'm working on: The Flying Dutchman
    Chapters Completed: 0
    Concepts Completed: Plot Summary
    Next Concept to Complete: Character Biographies

    Reading Spellwright by Blake Charlton, amazing fantasy books where words are literally the Magic, where sentences have magical capabilities and the protagonist is Dyslexic meaning he cant do magic without fucking things up. Unique magic system

    just finished "Liar (in original: Kłamca) 4, Kill 'em all" by Jakub Ćwiek - good stuff, angelic fantasy, violence, sex, gore, Apocalypse, elves, pop-cultural references, teddy bear - motive with teddy bear was kinda sad actually (my own teddy bear, coincidentally named Loki, surely feels sad about it too), especially since the teddy is with us from the vol. 1.

    Star By Star, just as gory as I remember it being ten years ago.

    Also, A Tale of Sand, a graphic novel of an old, reject screenplay written by Jim Henson. It's quite surreal, and the imagery's interesting, but I can see why no one wanted to turn it into a movie.
    ~Stargazer~, an original story.
