Midnight's Children

Midnight's Children
is the next book I have to read. I did a book trade, but not one where books were physically exchanged by anyone. A friend at the library agreed that he would read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay if I would read a book he suggested. He first said The Brothers Karamazov, but retreated after he saw the look on my face.

So I finally have a copy. We went on a tour of campus yesterday, and I held everyone up by buying the book. As we were leaving, I said: Never take me to a bookstore. Good advice, if you want to be anywhere else anytime soon.

The russian authors are not that bad, actually. Have you read Anna Karenina? It's one of my favourite books of all time! Doestoevsky is a little more...um...I don't know. Long? paranoid?

Yay! campus bookstore!

Yeah, I really should read those things... I've wanted to read Anna Karenina, but then I heard not so great things, so I let myself off the hook. But if you like it, I'll read it.

Erm. I was one of the people in class who did not raise their hand when you asked "Has anyone read a book for pleasure in the last month?"

I shock myself with the fact that I'm not reading.

So, in fact, I started it... I have not yet finished it. I'm going to restart it soon... December.

I think I might be addicted to books. And noodles. I need the ocean. I want to know everything. Almost. I love love. And loving things. Like love. And like.
