Re: Which book do you currently read?

I'm reading all kinds of lovely stuff related to my Master thesis...
I'm also reading a series of books by George R.R. Martin called A Song of Ice and Fire, love those books. I should really read something deeper but with all the studybooks a little fantasy is a nice change.

Vamos David and Juan Carlos

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid it will never truely begin.

Re: Which book do you currently read?

Letters on Life (previously published as The Poet's Guide to Life) by Rainer Maria Rilke (translated from German). One of the best books I've read in a long time.

Re: Which book do you currently read?

Man, I love Rainer Maria Rilke, I just wish my German were better.

I'm reading Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov. I love it. I'm also reading Tess of the D'Ubervilles for class and wish to gouge out my eyes.

Apt pupil - Stephen King

You called yesterday to basically say
That you care for me but that you're just not in love
Immediately I pretended to be feeling similarly
And led you to believe I was OK
To just walk away from the one thing
That's unyielding and sacred to me...

The short answer would be to say that it's about 112 pages, and written by a committee (apparently.)
