      It's been a while since I posted so I'll run through what I read.

      Finished up
      Get Off Your BUT


      I really enjoyed it and it makes you think about all the ways we self sabotage ourselves.

      after that started on Catch-22 and just couldn't read it. I don't know what it was I just couldn't get into it and had to stop reading it. First book in a long time that I didn't finish.

      then read I Suck at Girls


      then Fight Club


      then Kill Kill Faster Faster


      then Zombie

      Don't let the title fool you, it may not be what you think.

      and now started on Excelsior!



      I may have forgot one in there but I don't think so

      I am reading this for maybe the fourth time. It is a fantastic alternate history of the British Empire relocated to India after a comet hits the earth in 1878. The book starts in that world in 2025. S. M. Stirling is a master of fleshed out worlds and compelling characters. The book has some amazing action scenes and at times it seems non-stop.

      I had forgotten just how simple of a story The Hobbit was in relation to The Lord of the Rings books.

      It will be veryyyy easy to point out areas in the movie which do not follow the book.

      I read the 50 Shades of Trilogy and felt guilty for polluting my mind with smut , so I decided to go back to my roots and read a classic. I've never read Wuthering Heights before and I'm really loving it, so far.

      I have almost picked the first book up for my Kindle just to say that I have read it. It it near the polar opposite of the sort of genres I like to read, but they are so damn popular some part of me wants to know what is going on.


      Although I do a lot of my reading at the fire station while I am on shift, and I could NEVER be caught reading such a book up there.

      Finished this... superrrr boring. It was required reading. The entire book is nothing but original documents which are documents from whatever time period.

      Such thrilling topics like:
      Ignatius Loyola, Spiritual Exercises, 1520
      Wang Yangming, Questions on the Great Learning, 1527
      Moses Cordovero, The Palm Tree of Deborah, 1560's

      And so on until you commit suicide.
