Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:
Ever drifting down the stream --
Lingering in the golden gleam --
Life, what is it but a dream?"

You have amazing taste in literature. <3 I love Sylvia.

I'm reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte at the moment...

I finished "Charms for the easy life" but I can't remember the author. It's an amazing book, it's very motivating as well.

I'm currently reading 'Minding Children' which is an Irish fiction novel by William Wall. I'm finding it quite hard to get in to, it all seems a bit confusing to me and it's quite heavy but I think it would be a good read if I had more concentration!

I'm reading Happiness TM By Will Ferguson. It's a mockery of the self help industry and books that can't possibly work. The premise is that imagine if a self help book actually work, what that would do as ann impact on society, so it's interesting as well as entertaining and unputdownable.

Am currently reading 'The hunchback of notre dame' - Very good.

Speed read 'my side of the story' in a few hours; one of the best books.

Should be reading 'Queen of the damned' and 'Dissconnected'...but I keep on getting distracted...



This is a gift, it comes with a price
Who is the lamb and who is the knife
Midas is king and he holds me so tight
And turns me to gold in the sunlight

And in the spring I shed my skin
And it blows away with the changing wind
The waters turn from blue to red
As towards the sky I offer it

I got Get Well Soon by Julie Halpern today. I've already finished it, but then again, its only 180 pages or so. It was pretty good! I also got another book, I'll post more when I've finished it.

Yup, I know the feeling. I have a huge pile of books waiting to be read, and I keep buying more ><

I finished 'Pascal's Wager' which was rather good, although the title was slightly misleading - there was one chapter on the wager, and the majority of it was on his scientific work (and how he tried to reconcile it with his religious beliefs). Good book, definitely worth reading.

Yesterday I read 'Darwin's Angel' by John Cornwell, which is a response to 'The God Delusion' written from the perspective of the guardian angel of various scientists from Darwin to Dawkins. It isn't a comprehensive counter-argument to all of Dawkins' claims, but then it isn't intended to be. It's a pretty easy read demonstrating some of the major flaws in his arguments and the poor quality of his research in many cases. If nothing else, it's amusing. It gets slightly too personal in places, perhaps, but to a far lesser extent than Dawkins himself, and overall it's a very good read.

Today I started reading 'Sexism & God-Talk' by Rosemary Radford Ruether. I haven't got too far yet, but it seems interesting - though I don't think I'm going to agree with much she says.

I need to find some slightly lighter bedtime reading, but I don't know what to choose. I got 'Behind the Scenes at the Museum' by Kate Atkinson a while ago and haven't read it, so I might start that soon. Anyone read it?

And yes, I'm sorry for posting so much information about books that probably no-one else is interested in, lol. I get a bit enthusiastic =/
