I'm reading 'Life Without Limits' - Chrissie Wellington. It's rather inspirational even if the writing style leaves something to be desired!
"I know you're sad, so I won't tell you to have a good day. Instead, I advise you to simply have a day.
Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don't give up on yourself just yet.
It'll get better. Until then, have a day."
Metro 2033, I'm about in the middle of the book. I highly recommend it, either if you are interested in post-apoc literature or the psychological "observation" of people finding themselves in difficult and unusual circumstances.
Abandon hope, ye pitiful ones. Embrace defiance and relent another day.
The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey
It's really good, and is in short chapter, which i enjoy. I prefer short chapters or sections to longbecause it means I can read in the short sections of time i get while the dinner is cooking, while I'm waiting for class to start and so on :B
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.
I spent some time this morning reading a couple of randomly-chosen chapters of Theology: The Basics by Alister E. McGrath. I'm an atheist but I found it very interesting on an academic level. I was reading it for revision but it was a surprisingly good, accessible, understandable read.
