The other day I picked up the Witchfire Trilogy Collected Edition put out by Privateer Press.

And yes, I do read DND books the same way others read novels.

I just picked up Smoke And Mirrors, a collection of short stories by Neil Gaiman, to add to my unhealthy obsession I've had lately.

I think I'm gonna try and find some H.P. Lovecraft stuff when I get back to school tomorrow. I've wanted to read some of his stuff ever since playing the Call of Cthulhu RPG a few years ago.

This book has everything you need. I bought it at Waldenbuchs back in October, and it rocks.

I'm reading Steinbeck, namely East of Eden. I'll probably pick up Of Mice and Men next or steal whatever Lovecraft books Arcane gets.

"The Second Sex" by Simone De Beauvoir

this one's gonna take me a while.

I hate Steinbeck, I don't think he has any talent, except to drool on about nothing for fourty pages.

My Junior english teacher, with a doctorite in english, agreed with me.

Well, people have differing opinions. I'd say Stienbeck has an excellent knack for capturing the feeling of places and times, but that his books often lag and are boring.

(plus he describes california extremely well)

I guess the early 1900's were really boring and rambled on for far too long.

I thought Of Mice And Men was a pretty entertaining read. It was one of the few required readings in high school that I actually enjoyed.

He has a PhD and he's working as a high school teacher?

I think you missed my point. He captured the era excellently, just way too slowly.

She, she is older and nearing retirement. She used to work at a private school.

I wish you were nearing retirement.

anyway I'm reading "cahiers du cinema" which is good but i wish the narrator guy would realize people want to just read the criticism from the directors and not his stupid views.

I wish your mom was nearing retirement!

I mildly like Steinbeck but I've only read two short stories in school. It is a big faux pas to like him here though so it bugs me when people are like "lolol steinbeck sucks" since I've neverrr heard a differing opinion

My dad bought me Atlas Shrugged along with like Tale of Genji and Crime and Punishment, and I read the first part of Atlas Shrugged, and I was like "wtf this book sucks" and he was like "YOU ARE MY DAUGHTER" :\

I read the first part of a different Ayn Rand book, the one with the red haired architect who hates the Greeks, what a drag, I bet he watches football, and joined Amnesty International, and if he skips classes it is for an "appt.", and he works in charlestown!!

ashamed to say I liked Anthem, but it could apply to anything

*note: I read all these cause there's an Ayn Rand scholarship you can win for writing an essay that i wanted to look at zzz

Dude... it's Ayn Rand. What did you expect?

Ayn Rand.

She probably sat there thinking "How can I contradict myself in this sentence?"

That book is so badass.

You can quote any single line from it and sound like a total badass, literally. I love that book.

Then there's the part where he makes the officers' mistresses soldiers. They don't obey at first, but then he cuts off the heads of one of them and they all obey. It's badass. :ninja:

So far I'm really liking Steinbeck.

His descriptions do for turn of the century California, what Tolkien's did for Middle-Earth.

Plus the character interaction in East of Eden is good so far.

I had to do that sophomore year! My english teacher made everyone in the class write an essay on Anthem to submit for the scholarship thing. I'm not all that good of a writer though.

Currently reading Riddle of the Wren.

Ayn Rand scholarship? What the fuck.

They should make a Richard K. Morgan scholarship. "I thought the softcore porn in this section of the book contrasted very well with the way the main character removed a man's skull in the next chapter."

Richard K. Morgan rules.
