You don't know Neil Gaiman? He's pretty popular right now.Actually the majority of that shelf is fairy tale stuff. The Fables comic series is a fairy tale retelling of all the classic characters living in disguise in the city, and the 5 books Cinder-Winter, is a scifi young adult series retelling the stories of a Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, and a couple others.

OMG, clean yo damn bookshelf. Also, that's blasphemy, you're a fraud.

The Last Humans was okay. Young adult dystopian scifi. I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but I had fun reading it. I really like where the story started, but it quickly became predictable. Lots of filler "action" scenes that I didn't really liked compared to the politics.

yeah the thing is a bit messy, i just thought in my head its still "on the shelf" even if its on top of other books.

i used to be into books more than i am now. Ive been focused on coding for the few other years. i want to read that old book though, thats next to do i think in 2019. (book from 1895, called history of the world)

Have you ever read Orson Scott Card's Enchantment? A modernized version of Sleeping Beauty but oddly tongue-in-cheek and charming about it.

I'm only a couple hundred pages in, but if you've read any continental philosophy before, you should be able to handle it. It definitely takes focus and could use brevity in places, but his poeticism and the diversity of materials he references make it worth it. I've heard similar things and while there is some dry economics, it's not nearly as rough as I was expecting. I'm also reading David Harvey's companion to Capital, which helps. I prefer it to the manifesto so far, Marx is better when he has space to breathe.
