I just started Dracula and my buddy was kind enough to buy me Fell by David Clement Davis. So far, I'm really enjoying Dracula.
I get up in the morning, divide by zero, howl at the moon and eat a bowl of surreal.

I read Looking For Alaska and An Abundance of Katerines. Fantastic stuff, love John Green's writing.

Started reading The Hobbit because I just never have and I want to before the movie is out!

What did you think of Lunar Park? I think, so far, it's my favorite.

Back in school now so probably going to get more reading done. In my English class were going to be reading a lot of Fitzgerald's work.

I've been minding my time reading The Lord of the Rings (Tolkien), and I just made it to the 5th chapter of the Two Towers. I'm also in the process of reading the Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov.

That's awesome, man. He has some cool stuff. Rumor has it, he used to sit in a chair with a spoon in his hand and a pot on the floor. Just as he was falling asleep (when the brain is free from some rational barriers) the spoon would fall on the metal pot and wake him up. Then he could put together the abstract things that the regular side of the brain can't comprehend as well.

I only really got interested in his stuff last year in a film literature class I took.

I heard he would also tie bells to his arms so when they dropped the ringing would wake him up.

He was looney toons, but amazing amazing.
