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.
Yeah I think she's shit
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
Currently reading The God Of Small Things, another recommendation I've picked up here and God I'm loving it!
One of my favourite books of all time!
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.
