Crime and Punishment
Airboy by James Robinson
The Satanic Verses by Rushdie. Goddamn what a trip, but freaking awesome. Reminds me a lot of the style of David Wallace and Pynchon, fucking killer.
"From cradle to Grave" a true crime book about a lady that had and killed 9 of her children before anyone started looking into her kids mysterious deaths.
I picked it up at a thrift store and am about halfway through. Its meh.
Dresden Files and Midkemia sagas for right now. Just finished John Jakes american revolutionary saga.
Books are for gay nerds, I'm dabbing on you losers, being fit means you don't read books and can slay pussy all day.
Sorry to be such a Chad & an elitist, but I'm half way through Never Tease a Weasel by Jean Conder Soule. It's great but difficult reading for a negro like meself.
Complete works of HP Lovecraft.
Great poem by him
i just finished reading this book about the zodiac killer, pretty interesting stuff

Marvin the Barbarian and rereading the Hitchhikers Guide series. Been needing a laugh lately.
Just finished One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and picked The Brothers Karamazov.
The Canticle of Leibowitz

Also just finished Flatland
>it's about a square
>in the second dimension
>he goes on adventures with a sphere
>sphere's a THIC BOI

>one of my favorites
Canticle was a fantastic read.
Grisham is such a great law based story teller.
Good book, you sound like a fag though
Yeah have about 50ish pages left
I hate how much I judged it from the cover (its the super over photoshoped one with the books on fire and the crows and shit) I was looking at it like 'really? it looks so generic scifi' But I was totally wrong. Easily in the top 5 of the year
A Brief History of Mankind
It's tragic and compelling that he achieves his goals throughout his life yet only ends up with more sorrow and hardship
Crime and Punishment is an incredible book- just keep going
His youtube lectures are killer
I like the scene at the start where the hero getting gang raped by ninjas sets him on a path of revenge rape.
Thucydides - The History of the Peloponesian War
Clausewitz - On War
Arendt - Eichmann in Jerusalem
Heidegger - Being and Time (yes actually reading it—admittedly not easy)

"Freedom", by Jonathan Franzen. It's the history of a family, and how they turn more and more unfortunate. It got some good reception in 2010, when it was published.

Ayn rand’s Atlas Shrugged
overhyped pseudo intellectual bullshit but sells effectively to insecure white men
Yeah, I know
1984. Just started it. Very good book
Heir To The Empire by Timothy Zahn it's the introduction of Grand Admiral Thrawn to the Star Wars extended universe. Not much of a fantasy/sci-fi fan but the author also writes military books so it's an interesting look at the Imperial Navy
Just finished this.
Pretty good, 7/10.
I much prefer Dostoevsky over Tolstoy tho, you just get way more drawn in to the way the characters think, their psychology etc.
Loved the sense of paranoia I felt from Crime and Punishment.
Overrated, get's lost on tangents all the time and only gets back on point at the end of the chapter.
Fantastic introduction to the stoics.
No idea, you tell me.
read one fifth of it. Had to leave it for a while, since I had to finish another book. When I came back, I was so messed up I had to drop until who-knows-when. I just couldn't follow. It was kinda boring, sometimes, so I might never end it.
Of you go
"Doctor Sleep" by Stephen King because buddy's wife suggested it and told me the gist what it was about, which got me intrigued.
It's pretty okay so far, but i'm like 70 or so pages in so I just started.
"How to Nigger the Niggriest" by Brock Bongo
It (second time}
how do i get into reading books? it took me like three months to read zombie survival guide i barely got into it.
i also read the beginning to seven deadly sins by Corey Taylor( singer to slipknot and stone sour) i also have his other book by him. i didn't even touch it.
I can totally see why, the first 40% of the book had NOTHING to do with Anna, lol.
It only started going somewhere when you got invested in everyone's relationships to each other.
And there wasn't much of a plot line you could follow, which makes it difficult to stay at it.
But at the same time, I think that was its selling point; it was more like following them day to day, not really knowing what would happen.
Loved Dolly and Leivin's love story tho(wouldn't say this is much of a spoiler, the book pretty much starts out with this).
I was so hopeful that this existed I googled it.
Begin with some timeless classic like Sir Francis of the Filth
>how do i get into reading books?
Set up a Goodreads account and add the one's you've already read, then scour for things that seems interesting.
I started out listening to audio books, then jumping over to kindle, and then physical books.
I still do listen to a lot of books tho, esp. whilst walking to and from work every day (20+20 min).
Don't rush it, and don't be afraid of reading several different books at the same time.
Also don't be afraid to drop books you don't like.
>Don't rush it, and don't be afraid of reading several different books at the same time.
Sorry if that sounded contradictory.
What I meant was... Just enjoy the process, there's no need in rushing it in order to "get through" your current book, before you can start something new.
Audio books are a godsend to me. Im mostly a non fiction guy and some times its takes me two listen through to get everything as im usually listening to these at my desk at work.
Physical reading I do in the tub. I take a bath most mornings before work instead of a shower. Reading for 30 minutes or so a day in the tub has been part of my ritual since college.
I know my wife secretly thinks im a homo for doing it.
Just got started on Dune. My dad read it back in the day, so far super immersive.
Yes. A man of culture
I'm by far more into non-fiction, but try to power through at least one novel each year.
(which I always dread, but never regret)
blood meridian, burning chrome, hard to be a god, the doomed city
Lewis and clarke journals
