Books!

  1. I have begun reading Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. It is a crime / thriller book mainly about a bank robber with a heroin addiction escaping to india and the adventures from there.

    I will reserve judgement for now but I am really enjoying it.

  2. OK, I didn't read it. I listened to an audiobook. Then spent a lifetime figuring out how to convert it to a decent audio format because Audible are a bunch of fag-Jews who use a macfag proprietary format.

    It contains a reference to the dread entity Nyaruko-chama

    Naruhodo!

    I'll be without internet for several hours tomorrow and I have the complete works of Lovecraft on kindle (didn't pay for it, ofc). That'll keep me busy for a while.

    I had all the Codex Alera books after the first on my wishlist, but they were ignored.

    i just started reading lovecraft because of nyaruko, well i'd been meaning to read it for a while because my sister has a lot of lovecraft books, so i borrowed one, it's an antology called the best of h.p. lovecraft bloodcurling tales of horror and the macabre, but aside from that i just finished reading spice and wolf 6.

  9. The Night of the Generals by Hans Hellmut Kirst. Very good book, made me want to watch the movie adaptation.

  10. Just finished Ender's Game. Haven't read any book in forever, but it was a satisfying read. Not as scifi heavy as I prefer. I don't know if I'll continue with Speaker for the Dead. But I will look forward to the movie adaptation.

    I can recommend the first thing. I'm not so sure about the second.

  15. I read spice and wolf volume one.

    I can't remember the last time I actually read and completed a book.

  16. Reading:
    - 9th book of the Undead Series.
    - 1st book of the Game of Thrones series.
    - The Iliad (In Spanish, this time!)
    - 10th book of The House of Night (I've gotten greatly bored with these series but I am interested in a few of the characters so I keep reading, isn't that fucking sad?)
