Books, Reading them.

Post by Holy Crap »

Naturally I assume that you can all read ( :o ). So, basically it's a topic to tell us about a book you've read/are reading/would like to read, and discuss.
I've recently been reading some books by Michael Crichton. Awesome stuff, it's really interesting and he sure puts alot of research and thought into his work.

I haven´t been reading much lately since I just don´t feel like it, but I´ve been flipping through a fact book about the history of comics and stuff like that. Also I was thinking about renting the Da Vinci-Code since everyone except for me seems to have read it.

I just read and reviewed a short story called "Premienovella" (The winner-short-story, kinda, I guess. I was never good at translating). It sucked balls but I´m done with it now. D:

Shallow as I am, I was thinking about going to the library to rent a book this Friday (no time tomorrow and it´s closed by now today), a really thick one that I can bring with me when I go to Averøya in two weeks with the band because that will totally make me look smart and then Magnus will totally be impressed. ( :confus: ) Two weeks should give me some time to get somewhere in it since being halfway through a thick book is more impressive than being at the beginning of one, and before you ask, yes, I sometimes find my own thoughts and plans just as ridiculous as you do.
Anyways the first book I thought of was Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, but I´ve already read that one recently. Then I thought about the Hitchhiker´s Guide to the Galaxy, but then I remembered that it sits on a top shelf and I´m not tall enough to reach it on my own and the librarian is so scary, I´d rather not ask for any help from her. Then I thought about Lord of the Rings but then I remembered that that book is actually extremely boring and that I ended up putting it away halfway through the second book the last time I tried, and I want to read a book that´s exciting when I first sit down with it. Then I thought about the Da Vinci-Code, but then I thought that not having read that one yet is kinda dumb since everyone´s read that one. Then I thought that Magnus prollers doesn´t give a shit about what books I read anyways and if he does then screw him, so I´m probably just going to rent some Terry Pratchett-books, or maybe the new Artemis Fowl-book.
(To defend myself, this string of thoughts came during a three-lessons-in-a-row of maths and honestly, you don´t expect me to focus on that for so long without being distracted, do you? Whoever put together the timetable was a fool to think that was a good idea)

Here I go again. These TL;DRs just come so frequently these days.

Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation-but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For if you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and co-heirs of Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

I don't think anything can be worse than Shakespeare. I can't understand those plays, especially when they're written as books.

Oh god Shakesphere. I hated writing the essays for them. Writing one about Romeo and Juliet literally gave me a nervous breakdown. x(

Well I sucked at it too. I remember my Othello coursework failed badly.
And who here has heard of King Lear? I've certainly never heard of this tosh.
