Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers. Finally. I've heard and read so much about this book that there isn't really much new information, but I like his writing style enough to finish it.

Girl interrupted. I loved the movie, so I decided to read the book. It's quite different, but not at all unenjoyable thus far.

Yeah, just finished it. I enjoyed it quite much, I recommend it, but it's certainly a bit out there. :D

I'm actually currently not reading any books at the moment; which reminds me, that maybe I should! I won't post a picture, I'm so sorry about that; I'm on my phone, and it's kind of hard to do so. Anyways, I will post 3 books that I have read, of which I found amazing!

1) Ender's Game: Sci-Fi book, I read it back in High School, it was reccomended to me by a friend of mines, and I remember loving it! It grasps your attention, if you are the type of person that questions a lot, sort of like a strong thinker.
2) Twilight: (1st of the saga) I remember reading it, and falling in love with the characters, especially Edward! Vampire novel.
3) 13 reasons why: Plain and simple; one of those books that make you feel a bunch of emotions, and has you questioning page by page.

Hope my post helped! :D

For both his sake and our own, I'm happy that man didn't pursue an MA in history. He'd have found so much in that subject—virtually regardless of the time or place studied—not in alignment with his own modern, moral standards and Marxist tripe he'd have suffered a complete mental breakdown long ago.

And what would our world be like now without his riveting exposé boldly condemning the apparent backwardness of a man who lived 500 years before us?

You might go a bit further and wonder why it's morally permissible to enjoy tragedy in the first place. None of us would enjoy being in those circumstances, so how is it that we can take pleasure from imagining other people in them? The same goes for comedy: a lot of jokes (such as in slapstick) that make us laugh would instead make us feel pity if we saw them in person.

Still plowing through The Luminaries. Rather enjoying how the characters interact through zodiac interaction. She's also changing the fidelity of her tale based on the movement if the sun.
As the book goes on the chapters grow shorter and we come to know our characters less with each page.

It's a fun read, but I remember feeling similarly. I've actually been meaning to get David and Goliath for a while, but haven't done so yet.

I'm reading Count Zero by William Gibson. It's not quite Neuromancer but it's great all the same.

Pretty good so far. It's dark, it's strange it's just smashing.
