Just finished Stephen King's Cujo, oh how a masterful freak like him can weave a scary book. I had a couple Horrorgasms, which is why I keep coming back to him.

Now I'm moving onto Dante's Inferno and Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

Elements of the Philosophy of Right by Hegel.

Don't let the title fool you; it's actually really boring.

The Medium is the Massage by Marshall McLuhan. The strangest little paperback I've ever "read". I would almost have thought it written recently, except for the fact that it predates anything resembling the internet.

Finished 69 Things, have begun Story of the Eye by Georges Bataille and The Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis. I also plan to start and finish Passages by Ann Quin in the next couple of days. It's quite short.

Also, I read a tiny bit of Beckett's Trilogy and gave up. Not in the right frame of mind for it.

69 Things was not particularly enjoyable, but it wasn't meant to be, and I found it quite interesting.

I was talking about 69 things. I found it to be far from interesting and a horrible read.

How do you read so many books in such a short period of time? Do you forsake school or work to read or have some awesome job where ur paid to read books?

I haven't got that far yet, but based on what I have read it sounds likely.

Still haven't made any progress with the Illuminatus! Trilogy.
Have a quarter of The Color of Magic to read.
Still on The Restaurant at The End of The Universe.
Just started Neuromancer.

Hooray for reader's ADD!

why the fuck not? Its called finding out what others find to be good reads so you can read them yourself. I don't have unlimited time like you to read thousands of books so I like to read ones that people have suggested to me in order to avoid shitty books.

I thought you were asking to be a dick. Well, it's a good book.
