The Mysteries of Pittsburgh... wasn't satisfying. It didn't have a point and meandered about for no reason. The ending was underwhelming and wouldn't have made a difference if it ended fifty pages earlier or later.

Bookstores often have a way of ordering books. When they need a book, they leave the title on a piece of paper at night and the book gnomes get to work on it as soon as possible. Sometimes it takes a week though.

I just started getting into The Walking Dead. On Book 2. I like it so far. Depending on the pace, I can see it continuing to be good.

Finished another chapter in Don Quixote. I blame the internet for me progressing through at a snails pace.

Atlas shrugged, not as boring as I thought it would be but I've made it half way through and I don't think I'll finish it, I don't see any reason to. I think I got the gist of what Ayn Rand was all about. For her, people came in only two varieties; herculean heroes of industry and horrible parasites. I'd say more about the book but right now I've got to go pick up my unemployment check and not pay my income taxes.

Sounds like you should be reading Steinbeck.

I guess Steinbeck's view would be the opposite of Ayn Rand's then? Mind you I didn't stop reading Atlas Shrugged because the political message bothered me. The book is just to damn long and all though Ayn Rand has a real flare for writing parasitic characters her titans of industry are dull as hell and practically interchangeable. They go off on this pedantic rants about the need to be selfish and then there all chummy and knightly with other industry men, doing each other solids with only the knowledge there helping their bros out seems like a bit of a contradiction. They mostly speak in monologues too which isn't very natural. I did like the one where Dagny propounds point by point why she wants to be Henry's dirty, dirty concubine. Ayn Rand was pretty hardcore.

I meant it towards your current situation of being out of work and the government wants some money from you. He wrote a lot about the depression era. It would by no means ease your pain or inspire you though. It would be like buying an emo new razors.
