Started The Fountainhead the other day. I like it so far. Not sure what to expect because everything I've read about Rand I pretty much disagree with politically and such.

Sage.    757

For school we're reading The Things We Carried (Tim O'Brien) and Light in August (Faulkner), just finished (but I'm still reading) Invisible Man (Ralph Ellison).

On my own I'm reading:

Death of a Salesman - Arthur Miller

We The Living - Ayn Rand (got this in the mail the other day because of some scholarship thing, decided I would read it)

Wanting to pick up Brothers Karamazov but every time I go to the book store I either forget the author's name, mistake his first name for his last name, or misspell the name so I never end up finding it ;_;. Also wanting to pick up Art of War but I couldn't find it at the store I went to.

Nausea Sartre i enjoyed it. the prose was kinda tough to read at times, but that couldve been the translator. Ending was kinda underwhelming as well. Felt a lot like he expanded upon Notes From The Underground more than say, the existential Catcher in the Rye.

Book of Blues Jack Kerouac Kerouac was not a good poet imo. I enjoyed bits and pieces but a lot of it was nonsense.

On the Conduct of Understanding - John Locke

such a good book, read book III of 'An Essay Concerning Human Understanding' first though, it helps with understanding some of the concepts.

hp lovecraft - the colour out of space: great short story; canonical lovecraft 'horrors of the untamed universe' spiel, and flamboyantly verbose

haruki murakami - hard-boiled wonderland and the end of the world: stylistically, it's almost self-parody. black humour and hip cultural references abound

albert camus - the plague: just finished it. kafkaesque, and less succinct than i expected from camus

my reading list now is:

werner heisenberg - physics and philosophy

daniel keyes - flowers for algernon

haruki murakami - the wind-up bird chronicle

robert shea - the illuminatus! trilogy

kazuo ishiguro - the remains of the day
