Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world awaits in darkness for the light that is you.

Just finished Perfect Picture By Jodi Picoult - first Jodi Picoult book, not too impressed

Now half way through Send By Patty Blount, enjoying this, reading it and remembering that it is aimed at younger readers. Bullying in this era. No longer as obvious as it once was. The era of cyber bullying.

I'm just starting Picture Perfect - Jodi Picoult. I think I tried to read it before but couldn't get into it.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Again. This is probably my tenth time, but it's one of those really good books where when you finish it, you close it, let it sink in for a few minutes...then turn it over and start again from the start!

The frame story is OK, but once you get into the real meat of the book, it's wonderful. I particularly like that at no point do they have some convenient skill just develop (eg. hero picks up a sword for the first time, hero becomes SUPER MEGA BADASS swordsman). In fact, the book is mainly about how the protagonist becomes a badass...and the author is willing to let him suffer at times in the process!

Really well developed world, great character development, fun characters overall!

Myth-Quoted, by Jody Lynn Nye. Very good book about politics, without it being about real world politics.

Speaking of James Joyce, I finished reading A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man this morning. Odd little book, dragged at times, but it was an interesting read and I enjoyed it. I imagine it has changed how I view his other books, though I'll have to re-read Dubliners and Ulysses at some point to know how much.

Currently reading various texts about Heraclitus and Parmenides, and a nice little textbook called The Course of Irish History by various authors. I'm hoping to get started on Animal Farm by George Orwell sometime today.

I finished Animal Farm this morning, I love that book more and more every time I read it because I always find something new.

I won't be reading any novels for a little while, for now I'm going to focus on doing my reading for college. I'm reading a lot of stuff about early Greek philosophy at the moment, and a little bit of Irish history and psychology.

The book actually *is* user-friendly. I just fail at getting the idea behind reader-response criticism.

I am just about to start 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens, because I've never read it. Then I'm going to borrow the DVD of the Muppet version from my brother and watch it!
