    Currently reading Moby-Dick. Hadn't read it in a few weeks until last night (had a bit of a drug relapse, unfortunately), so getting back into it again, I had forgotten how damn good Melville's writing is, especially anytime Ahab is speaking. On Chapter 100, so don't have too much left. Started it about two months ago, so it's been a bit of a leisurely read, but I've loved what I've read. I actually don't mind all of the non-narrative chapters/digressions, but maybe I'm just interested in the subject (I read In the Heart of the Sea twice, and loved it).

    I'm currently reading "I like it here", by Kingsley Amis. So far, a good, light, and fun book.

    I am reading a few books at the moment, Sellout by Paul Beatty, Disparities by Slavoj Zizek, Naked Heat by Richard Castle (a little known writer...) and working through Doctor Who and philosophy by various for a project at school. All interesting in different ways, some lighter than others.

    Personally, I think that the unique and supreme delight lies in the certainty of doing 'evil'–and men and women know from birth that all pleasure lies in evil. - Baudelaire

    Poems of Li Shangyin. I saw a Chinese girl. I like the poet. No page numbers since I am reading the poems via internet. The first line, "You ask when I'll return - I don't yet know." Very subtle, allusive. Great poet!

    I'm almost finishing "The Fall" by Camus. One of my favourite authors.

    I've started that book a few times, but for some reason have never finished it. Must've just been at hectic points in my life, because I love me some Stephen King (his other long book, It, is probably my favorite by him).

    1. Eileen, by Ottessa Moshfegh

    2. Saw it on a table at the bookstore and I dug the cover art, so I picked it up and started reading it...then I went to the cashier and bought it.

    3. "I looked like a girl you'd expect to see on a city bus, reading some clothbound book from the library about plants or geography, perhaps wearing a net over my light brown hair."

    4. 181, almost done.

    How did this go? I really struggled with it and was glad to see the back cover of it.
