German people love the poopin.


You love talking nonsence.


I just finished Emma by Jane Austen and now I'm reading Sophie's world by Joostein Garder. This book is brilliant. It describes the history of philosophy...
And I'm looking forward to read some more by Hermann Hesse, my fav author.. <3 You really should read his stuff, it's such an enrichment for my life..

i read the short story of shawshank redemption by stephen king the other day to have a break from reading nausea by sratre.  it was pretty good.  nausea is pretty heavy going but the book has really started to pick up now so it's a bit easier to read.

I'm reading a Terry Pratchett book : Guards ! Guards !
It's from the Discworld's series if you know it.

yeah nausea is a little hard to get into, hah, i read it over the summer. i enjoyed it overall but i had to put it down a lot at first. luckily i had a lot of free time at work and nothing better to do, haha.

i think it just depends on the guy. i think it's a great book but i know a lot of my guy friends would put it down after 5 minutes tops. if you like to read and you like the vocabulary i'd say give it a shot - the story is pretty girly but eh, I liked it?

1984 is a great book. As for House of Leaves: Yes, I do recommend it. It's insane, very all over the place and it took me a while to finish it. But it's a fun read.
