    American Rifle, the story of the role that the American rifle has played in American history and how it has affected other industries. Quite interesting and well-written.

    no one should ever read the absurd garbage that chuck palahniuk shits out. he is a talentless asshole who relies solely on his ability to shock. his work has absolutely no substance and is only taken seriously by gullible and tasteless hipsters who read books simply to impress their friends.

    He also lacks basic writing skills like capitalization.

    Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. I saw the movie before, so I guess it won't have as big an impression on me.

    A lot of differences from the movie.

    I read like 100 pages of The Road last night. What a disturbing book. I had this sick feeling in my stomach for the entire time I was reading. It was surreal.

    Reading some of the non-rhetoric Cicero at the moment. Good stuff. Tusculan Disputations is quite interesting.

    I will probably have to read The Catcher in the Rye again sometime soon since I'm writing a Soci paper on it.

    The Magic Mountain, again

    I read it for the first time this year and loved it. Earlier in the year I read Buddenbrooks and I'm not sure which one I think is better.

    Reading a lot of stuff lately. Just finished 'Something Happened' by Joseph Heller, and yesterday started 'Infinite Jest' by David Foster Wallace. I read it something like 12 years ago, so this is a reread. I also just started Ecclesiastes this morning, and I'm also reading something called 'The Mystery of Marriage'.

    I'll probably be reading IJ for the foreseeable future.
