    Flux, you're new here; most users tend to frown on pointless posts in worthwhile threads. All you accomplish is making yourself look dumb, and derailing an otherwise intelligent topic; it's simple forum etiquette. There are several "off topic/random" threads where you can get that bullshit out of your system. You made a mistake, learn from it, move on, and you'll become a better poster.

    I'm supposed to be reading The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde for english lectures, but gettting throught it slowly. a lot of it just seems a bit too "oh dorian you are beautiful, come to the theatre with me"

    I read a picture of dorian gray for myself while I was studying "an ideal husband" for school. I enjoyed it, it gets better when you start noticing the horrible things that are happening to the painting. I don't remember cause it was a long time ago, but the gothic side takes away all the annoying "oh you're so beautiful" parts that I get so tired of in books...

    I'm reading "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" by Allan Sillitoe. I'm enjoying it.

    It took me a little while to figure out what woodbines were.

    I'm reading The end of the history and the last man by Fukuyama. And then I'll have to read 2 more books related to politics, cause our crazy professor told us to do that.

    Man, everyone in here is a READER.

    Right now I'm reading Cadmian's Choice by L.E. Modesitt. Light Fantasy gets you through transit quite well. I wouldn't actively recommend L.E. Modesitt to people, but to anyone who feels like mildly entertaining Fantasy to pass the time - it's a good investment.

    Finished Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card today. It was pretty good. I think I'll pick up Speaker for the Dead next.

    Also continuing to make my way through The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I quite enjoy it.
