Noonward, you say "used to"? what happened there?
the poetry scene died of poetry, it was an act of poetry itself, poetic even, poets and poems, poets and poems.

The last I've read was The Ranger's Apprentice : the burning bridge. I'm currently re-reading the entire series. I've always loved those books.

I went thru a period of voraciously reading Philip Dick stuff. So brilliantly written, and such a unique take on the sci-fi genre.

Do I read The Wasp Factory or Memoirs Of A Geisha next? I know they're two completely different books but I can't decide.

i finished the millennium trilogy and i just feel like idk

do you ever read a book and have a shit opinion of it because you feel like you could have written it yourself

well it was like that. with no subtlety or subtext. i mean ok the guy clearly has an interest in writing male characters who have issues with women. that's fine. but can't there be degrees of that shit? does literally every single one have to refer to them as bitches and sluts in their internal monologue?

have some perspective on your writing dude. too bad you're dead or you could have taken a lit class

I was fed up when I was done with them all three and barely could get myself to watch the movie(s). The first one is alright but damn the other two drag on.

yes

also the funniest moment for me was when top hacker Lisbeth was going on about the benefits of a backlit keyboard for seeing the keys in the dark, like she's my gran typing with one finger
