Currently reading Redemption Ark by Alastair Reynolds. It's pretty good time spent, if I can make sense of it all

Just found a stash of old german book, so i started and finished The Metamorphosis/Die Verwandlung. It is a ready good read, it is written in a humourous and absurd way, but it makes you think about ones own social connection with family, friends or work colleagues/fellow peers.
I think i'm going to read one of schiller's play. Funnily those play writtings reminds me of japanese light novels, maybe because they are structured in a similar fashion.

There's an evil program called AR.

I have to read 250 more points worth by the end of the year.

But anyways, books I'm reading:

1. Lord of the Flies (very nice so far)
2. Dragon Rider (for points)
3. Anatopsis (revisiting an old friend)

On to-read pile:

1. Dark River (again, for points)
2. All the Pretty Horses (a friend of mine recommended it so I thought I'd give it a try)
3. Stargazer (for points)
4. The Pirate's Son (for points =P)

There are probably more but I can't think of any right now..

Oh yeah! GOOD OMENS!! How could I forget that? By my fave authors, too..

Wow, I remember AR. We had to do that too. Whoever got a lot of points got to go on a field trip at the end of the year though.

Anyway, reading The Tempest by William Shakespeare. I have to read a monologue as the character Caliban.

Finished this morning
To Kill a mockingbird: Harper Lee
It'll require a second read, but most of what came to mind when reading it was:
Balthus
and
Japanese people take concepts and really spin it however they want to. :P

I liked the richness of the book in terms of allegory and historical references, but it really mainly gave me inspiration that one day I may be able to master Japanese and write something as powerful as Nabokov did with Lolita writing in English.

Currently working my way through Heidegger's Being and Time. I'll have to read Sartre's Being and Nothingness after that.
