    Currently reading: Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, and it's remarkably good. Probably one of the best i've ever read, and that's saying alot.

    Mary Shelley-Frankenstein or The modern Prometheus

    Kinda depressing, but I have never thought that it has so many things behind the story. It's nice to analyse it.

    I like Wuthering Heights too, somehow I couldn't put it down until I read it till the end.

    Now I'm on The Gashleycrumb Tinies: Or After the Outing by Edward Gorey.

    Here's an excerpt.
    "A is for Amy who fell down the stairs. B is for Basil assaulted by bears. C is for Clara who wasted away. D is for Desmond thrown out of a sleigh"
    The book is bloody brilliant, plus it has pictures!!
    Check it out from your local library if you don't want to by it, for this is one of the few books I will label: A MUST READ.

    It's just: WOW

    I love that book!

    Oh, well I'm currently reading: "A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" Not a bad book, even though everyone else I know seems to hate it.

    I'm currently reading The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger by Stephen King.

    After that I'll probably read 1984.

    I just finished The Memory of Running by Ron McLarty. It was a good positive surprise seeing as I was expecting it to suck.

    Right now I'm reading Stephen King's Lisey's Story for the second time, now in Finnish. I also finally started Howl's Moving Castle.

    I need to get back to reading some of the books I got. I'm in the middle of both 1984 and Equal Rites.

    I tend to read only fantasy. Eddings, Tolkien, Cunningham, Moers; pretty much anything goes if it has more races than just one, some magic, a good plot and interesting characters. I've got to admit that the Belgariad and Mallorea series were the best pieces of literature I've ever held in my hands. Just beautiful.

    Oh lucky you ! - I always underestimated that one, it's very good indeed though. Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite though.
    And the stylistic twists Cuaron brought to it were quite refreshing. (Altough I was disapproving of Gambon at first)

    Love that Play.

    Re-reading Sun Tzu's Art of War, and the it's on to Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings.

    I'll have both of those done by tomorrow, so after that I'm going to attempt Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil.
