What Book Are You Reading? — Part IV

Finally got Fountainhead, will begin reading it soon. Maybe I should’ve waited longer between Ayn Rand books…this thing is 750 pages, I thought it would be about 200, hahaha.

I’m half-way through a book called Black Boy by Richard Wright. Its supposed to be an autobiography, but he never kept a journal so all the events of his life are written from his memory. As he’s writing about events from thirty-five years ago, some of the events are inevitably altered due to what time has done to his memories. Regardless, its still an excellent read and a enlightening look through the eyes of an African-American boy growing up in the Jim Crow South of the United States.

hahaha, for a minute there I thought you were talking about the Richard Wright of Pink Floyd fame, a white keyboardist. I was like…what? :lol:

I’m about to read the kite runner, is it any good?

The ending sucks, terribly, but the remainder 90% of it are really good :smile:

I’m readying The Odyssey in English class. Just finished reading The Cyclops part…that cyclops eating his men ugh!

I’m trying to read Les Miserables again. I know it’s supposedly fantastic but I just couldn’t get myself to read it earlier. I mean, half of the book is a novel and half is blatant political commentary, and there’s not much transition between it. It’s kinda disconcerting and boring sometimes but whatever, maybe that’s just me. I’m not so good with classical literature, but I’ll give it another shot.

I’m reading Platon’s Phaidros (Socratic dialogue), Jacques Derrida’s Plato’s Pharmacy and De la Grammatologie, Nietszche’s Birth of Tragedy, Aristotle’s On Rhetoric.

Today I bought Joyce’s Ulysses and Marquez’ Cien Años de Soledad, almost bought Borges’ Ficciones too.

I am reading Wicca:A guide for the solitary practitioner by Scott Cunningham

confession time…


i actually LIKE Hamlet!!

it’s… it’s true…


I read Hamlet a while back. I actually really enjoyed it. I don’t remember any of it though. I’d read it again, but there is just so much stuff that I haven’t read before that I want to make a dent in :content:

Fountainhead is amazing so far, very enjoyable.

Thanks Bruno

I’m Reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, 'tis pretty good so far :tongue:

The element of Fire
Digital Knight and am starting reading a story collection of lovecraft storys

“The Dice Man” by Luke Rhinehart.
I just bought it when I was waiting for the train but it turned out to be better than I had expected. :content:

I just started The Inferno by Dante.

Great book! :thumbs: Be stubborn about it, and get to the end, read up to Paradise. It’s a bloody brilliant book.

I read that book last Christmas time (kind of ironic really :content: )

I’m about to start that one, once I finish off Life of Pi by Yann Martel, which I’m reading for an english class.

Picked up Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card at the request of my roommate. I’m only 3 chapters in, but so far as I can tell, the characters are really good. I’ll keep posted on how the story turns out.
