I'm trying to start reading Imajica by Clive Barker. Although he is one of my favorite writers, all of his books (except for The Thief Of Always) start really slow and are hard to get into right away.

Wheel Of Time is my favorite book series of all times. I even played that trashy video game because of the series.

Exactly. But once I got into them, I couldn't stop reading. Which also, I hope, will be the case with Imajica.

Having been a long time fan of absurdist theatre, recently discovered Edward Albee, Tom Stoppard and Harold Pinter. Beckett would be proud I think.

Currently reading Plato's Protagoras for my Political Theory class. It's short and easier to understand than I thought it would be. Next up for this class is The Republic, and then Aristotle's Politics.

Later in the year I will have to read:

  • Niccolo Machiavelli - The Prince
  • Thomas Hobbes - The Leviathan
  • John Locke - Second Treatise of Government
  • Jean-Jacques Rousseau - Basic Political Writings
  • Karl Marx and Frederich Engels - Communist Manifesto
  • Karl Marx - Selected Writings
  • Max Weber - The Vocation Lectures
Yeah, I have my reading cut out for me. That's only for one class.

I had to look that up, and yes, yes it is. I think calling you a "dweeb" might even be in order.

Dipping into the bits about Bowie in a book about Iggy Pop and re-reading parts of Walter Issacsons biog of Steve Jobs...the bits about Macs 'cause I've got one since I read it indeed I got one because I got it in a roundabout way.

It would just say to me you only read books you're assigned. Possibly that you don't know much about it except for what was discussed around you.

When I get it, I'm going to read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
