I finished Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov this morning, it was amazing. A horrifically dark plot, with a truly monstrous protagonist, but so beautifully written (especially the ending - "And this is the only immortality you and I may share, my Lolita").

I can't decide what I should read next: The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus, or Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.

Me, Myself and Them. A book about a guy with schiz.

The Swan Thieves. Interesting in a long and convoluted kind of way.

I have so many on the go :O I am reading Stephen King's The Skeleton Crew, Marya Hornbacher's Manic, a book about a french girls depression and the Witches of Eastwick :)

Lolita is simply amazing. My favourite book.

Right now I'm reading "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey. I think there's been quite a bit of controversy surrounding it, but I'm still enjoying it regardless of whether the details are fabricated or not.

I made up my mind - just started The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus. Very thought-provoking.

I finished The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus this morning. It was very interesting, but (like most philosophical tracts) very, very heavy going.

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller is being performed at the Gate Theater soon, so I thought I'd read it and see if I'd be interested in going. I finished Act 1 earlier and there is no way I'm missing out on seeing it on-stage.

Finished Death of a Salesman. Really powerful stuff.

I'm going to start Forbidden Colours by Yukio Mishima later (I'm too busy playing Pokémon to do it now).

I've just read "A Voice in the Distance" by Tabitha Suzuma, which is the sequel to her book "A Note of Madness".

They're both reallly good books, and quick reads I find, they're about a character named Flynn who is a student at London's Royal Music Academy and practically a piano genius. The story is about how he develops Bipolar disorder and everything that develops from that.

Just finished Invisible Monsters- Chuck Palahniuk
