Notes from the Underground - Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Life changer, even though I am yet to finish it. I can see so much of my self in the unnamed narrator that I just had to do something to change the direction of my life. I am very anxious about it too, as what I am about to do could the single most stupid thing I will ever do in my life. Hey ho, roll on tomorrow.

The next book I plan to read is Suicide by Émile Durkheim. It's a right barrel of laughs round at mine at the moment.

Having now finished Notes from the Underground and it leaving me with an enormous fear that I will become as pitiful and pathetic as the Underground Man himself in my old age, I thought reading a book about suicide be a bad idea.

So something light hearted is needed in my life so today I started reading The Witches of Chiswick by Robert Rankin.

I'm not sure what to read next. Wilde, Hume, Melville, Toole, or Koerbagh? ....

Wilde, I suppose.

I'm reading The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It's pretty saccharine and a little corny, but not bad.

I'm also reading The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr edited by Clayborn Carson.

That Last Dark, The last book in the final series of the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, rather unsurprizingly, given my username. I suppose it is surprizing that I've only just got round to reading this.

Now I'm reading Moby Dick and Oscar Wilde's works simultaneously; Melville on my iPad as PDF and Wilde as a book. I learned so much from the first pages of Moby Dick already:
Thither
Lee
Loitering
Yonder
Reveries
Mole
Insular

Just finished reading "The Rabbit Back Literature Society" by Pasi IIlmari Kaaskelainen (Finnish in English translation). It's been an interesting way into Scandinavian fiction for someone who isn't really into the whole crime writing thing. Although it gets pretty dark in this story 8O

I'm a HUGE reader so this is just the latest in a long line of stuff I've been reading the past while...

Moby Dick is so beautifully written. I just love those early chapters too, you have a lot to look forward to.
