    Anyone read And Another Thing... yet? Mostly Harmless had a pretty depressing ending and I need some closure. But if it's way off from Douglas Adam's style, I rather not read it.

    I ended up picking up the first Diskworld book today because I didn't know where to start. So far it has been pretty disappointing. I have yet to laugh once. I'm just now reading around online that most people didn't like the first one though. Damn.

    Reading On The Beach, by Nevil Shute. I really like a lot of books written during the Cold War era, it turns out - the social order, naturalized rights to rule and the consequences of global actions show up again and again in the literature I enjoy. It's good times.

    Not that On The Beach deals with that in so many words, but the vibe underscores the story.

    I got the first one for my birthday when I was 13. I read the first 10 pages and it was boring.

    But I didn't find Hitchhiker's guide that funny either.

    The Bible, it's hard to get through because of how repetitive it is and the print is so small it's actually about twice as long as I expected.

    I'm reading Fear and Loathing too, found it on my computer. I'll be reading Catcher in the Rye soon, I've been meaning to for so long.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    When you're in the thralls of research madness is always the weirdest time to read a book. It's crazy and you blast through books so fast looking for relevant information that eventually you reach a stage of informational drain where information leaps off the page, enters your head, is inserted into your paper, and then you forget it as soon as you move on.

    Katherine Hayles - How We Became Posthuman
    Christine Hine - Virtual Ethnography
    Sherry Turkle - Life on the Screen
    Tim Guest - Second Lives: A Journey Through Virtual Worlds
    David E. Apter (ed.) - The Legitimization of Violence
    James Forest (ed.) - Influence Warfare
    Eva Mackey - The House of Difference
    Eitzen & Sage - The Sociology of North American Sport
    Karen O'Reilly - Ethnographic Methods
    Winona Giles and Jennifer Hyndman (eds.) - Sites of Violence
    Cindy D. Ness - Female Terrorism and Militancy

    It's especially awesome since I'm writing three papers concurrently (though the books above are only for two of them) so the connections that come up occasionally make no sense whatsoever. I love it!

    I'm half-consciously reading 1984 at the moment.

    I'm currently reading Son of a Witch. I'm only 90 pages in but I think it might actually be better than Wicked.
