J.K my English teacher adores James Joyce and has a picture of him on his classroom walls and frequently talks to the poster >.<

I'm currently reading the original novel of Sweeney Todd. It's really good, completely separate from the musical and movie though.
After it i'll be reading Dexter: Darkly Dreaming by Jeff Lindsay.

The Discovery of Heaven, by Mulisch
it's an awesome book, I've read it six times now, and it still amazes me.

And to keep in that direction, I'm now reading Dante's La Divina Commedia. Only because I don't have enough money to buy a copy of Paradise Lost by Milton (I've read the divine comedy already).

I'm reading 'From the Edge of the Couch' by Dr Raj Persaud. It's really very boring so far, but hopefully it'll improve. I've only just started it.

Finally finished 'Brave New World' the other day (haven't had much time for reading =[), but it was really good. Definitely worth reading.

I had to read some articles by John Locke in a philosophy module that I was doing. It was so difficult! Can't believe you are manageing to read a whole book! Philosophy still gives me nightmares!!!

I am currently reading a lot. Keep starting things and just giving up because I am still really struggling to read!

Eldest By Christopher Paolini
Life, Interrupted By James McConnel
Statistics Without Tears By Derek Rowntree (For uni!)
i, robot by Isaac Asimov
Mansfield Park By Jane Austen

Then on top of that I have my other uni books
1. Accounting book for management
2. Stats book for management (not the one mentioned above)
3. Economics book
4. Psychology book and sometimes stats for psychology!

ARGH!!! Its crazy! Got so much work to do!! ARGH!!!

Does anyone else find it hard to read for pleasure while at uni?



You made up your mind to torture mine!
If you read a scar like a book, you will relise the story in which you over look
red ribbons were weaving
upon the young girls skin.
a trail of red weaved deep,
caused by pain from within
