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 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 ^^

Fountainhead is amazing so far, very enjoyable.

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 ^^ )

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.
