    I’m planning a pilgrimage to The Hague to see the painting in anticipation!

    I’d want to read The Fountainhead. There are many classics that I need to read...

    I’m on my 30th book this year, but this is the first book I havent finished in a week for months. It’s long and I have been very busy, but so far it’s the best book I’ve read this year. Out of Egypt - read it!

    I’ve read a book by Ali Smith about 5-6 years ago, it was definitely one of the worst books I’ve ever read.

    i've been reading a bit these days. pretty eclectic bunch of stuff.

    finally finished yuval noah harrari's sapiens after letting it sit halfway through for about a year. it's definitely a fantastic read, though i found the first part a lot more gripping and eye-opening and a lot has happened since it came out.

    also went through camus' the plague in a jiff (i'm now waiting for a copy of the fall), read halfway through taoists secrets of love: cultivating male sexual energy ( :eyes: ), read a few pages of the war of art (it was actually pretty useful and enough) and breezed through tennesse williams' cat on a hot tin roof.

    I started Homo Sapiens and gave up on it.

    Agreed. I read Winter last year and it was total drivel.

    The one I read was The Accidental. I get angry just thinking about it, it was so shockingly bad.

    Having decided I don't fancy September's Moopy Book Club book and downloading a load of books for my impending holiday, have decided to go balls deep tonight in THIS:

    Oh I see I didn't tell you lot I read Andrew Sean Gree's Less during my summer acation as I saw a lot of you raving about it here. Well I didn't like it. I felt no sympathy, nor did I care about Arthur Less. Some parts were mildly funny but over all it just didn't speak to me. Oh and that ending :zombie:

    Currently reading The God Of Small Things, another recommendation I've picked up here and God I'm loving it!

    Suedey love, I'm about 75% in and it's already in my top 10 ever. We're only JUST getting to finally know what actually happened.
