Desolation Angels by Jack Kerouac. Third novel I have read by Kerouac (others were On The Road and Dharma Bums) and I am enjoying his work immensely.

i'm reading The Road br Cormac Mcarthy. I read it last week and it was so unbelievably good that i decided to read it again right away. I don't think i've ever done that before with a book. The writing is just so beautiful though. I recommend it  :thumbup:

System of the World by Neal Stephenson, which is really a collection of three books.

It's the most exciting story I've read involving currency and calculus.

Damn if that don't look intriguing. How's it treating you?

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Running with Scissors right now. I have so many on my list though, I can't wait to get done to get to my other titles, and I'm dying to buy the Series of Unfotunate Events series (just bought Narnia though, w00t!).

Edit: Finished that book. I ended up starting on Hooking Up: A Girl's All-Out Guide to Sex and Sexuality.

Dostoevsky's 'Uncle's Dream' (trans. David McDuff). I think it ranks as Dostoevsky's most hilarious novel, and it's really one of the funniest novels of any author that I've read. Check it out!  :thumbup:

The Time-Traveler's Wife. It's badass


--------------------
Jumped in a river, what did I see?
Black eyed angels swimming with me
Moon full of stars and astral cars, all the figures I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and all my futures
We went to heaven in a little rowboat
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

It's a children's book. It's treating me fairly well. I only wish I had more time for it, be damned grey men :wink:

interesting read. i'm not all that far into it yet, but he comes off as more down to earth than many other 2K12 authors i have seen.

pinchbeck? down to earth? really?

that guy rubs me entirely the wrong way. to me he comes across as an opportunist, and a male chovinist, but that's just from my (limited) reading of him

“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

Currently reading:

Cosmic Trigger vol.1 by RAW
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Kundasomethingerother
Atlas Shrugged by Ann ran screaming from the woods of communism
Some book about the Undiscovered Self and dreams by Jung (yeah, I know...)
Small Gods by Terry Pratchet (light reading for drunk nights)
The Fifth Child by the ever pretentious and god-awful Doris Lessing (is that her name?)
The Silva Mind Control Method by some quackishous charlatain boor
The Brothers Karamazov by dusty off key (only in the morning upon waking)
Screw-jack by HSTRIP (i've got one more page but paused to respond to this thread)
The Fuck-up by hue nose?
Issue #10 of BLACKHOLE by this fucking incredible dude who made the most incredible comic... (fantagraphic book)
DEAD END by Ott
TROGLODYTES (I've been studying that one for years but only while stoned)

and I think that's it for now and as you can see i need to stop drinking all this coffee and take one book at a time but i value the diversity of having several different reality tunnel thingys running through my brain depending on the hour or day or whether or not i'm stoned, drunk, buzzed, sleepy, groggy, or what have you.
