    I'm trying to get as much "pleasure reading" in before i get swamped by my course readings.

    Right now, i'm making my way through Anthony Bourdain's "A Cooks Tour"; his stuff is always so fun to read. Now I sort of want to plan my next travel venture in order to try some of the food he's describing.

    Finished Jobs' biography - as I said: worth reading.

    I am about to start "A short history of the world" by H. G. Wells.

    I finally got through The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. For a young adults' book it was very very good. Worth the read.


    I am now reading Frida: The Biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera. I'm not very far in, but so far am enjoying it a lot.

    I recently finished Romance of the Three Kingdoms Part 1 by Luo Guanzhong and loved it.

    I just started Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race by Jon Stewart. Pretty witty so far.

    The only reason I haven't started Part 2 of Guanzhong's epic is that I simply can't find it. Haha.

    I was bookworm before but now since most of the book that I've read have been put into movies. So, I'll better watch movies.

    I'm still reading Frida Kahlo's biography.

    Also reading Troilus and Criseyde by Chaucer, in a modern english translation because I don't have the patience for the Middle English

    I just started reading Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden. I've seen the movie 11 or 12 times so I figured it's time to read the book. So far it's really good, but basically the exact same as the movie.

    I feel silly for this eureka moment I just had. I can't stand reading books on my computer screen and I don't have any money to spend on them right now so I haven't really read any in a long time. Then it hit me. Libraries exist! I'm ecstatic. Going to one tomorrow.
