Read a selection of Poe's short stories. I'm not much of a short story fan, but I did really like these.
And now I am starting into Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis
My iphone game with a book app and the option to choose a free book from a limited selection of mostly classical literature.
I chose The Posessed by Dostoyevski. Since I don't really enjoy classical literature, and I have no intention of attempting to lord a cultured, 'I'm smarter than you because I read boring old books' attitude on others, I have very little motivation to read classical literature. Especially since most of it's boring, poorly written, and amateurish. (Yes, it might be a classic, but 200 years in the advancement of storytelling does allow modern story tellers to give more while using less, doesn't mean that all classics are bad, or all modern books are good.)
It's sort of like how if Alfred Hitchcock released a movie today, no one would find it suspenseful.
I'm trying to pick up on Niklas Luhmann's systems theory using an English translation, but this shit is dense. You essentially have to ignore that he's going back to a functionalist perspective to be alright with it.
Tomorrow I move past the intro and the first chapter.

K.Kesey is a master of descriptions and bearable psychoanalysis, actually after reading "Sometimes a great notion" I feel like I saw a movie, I remember it like that.
