the spectacle of the scaffold- Michel Foucault

linder surprise 01-03-2009 10:39 PM

foucault is amazingly interesting. i've only studied a little but i really liked it.

i'm not reading anything. i should be. i am so lazy, i just buy books & let them sit on my shelves so i can pretend to look clever when people come round.

Spoons 01-03-2009 11:23 PM

yeah foucault is quite good, some of it is hard to read but its good to read.

Can't seem to get into fiction at the moment so I'm reading alot of autobiographies.
Just finished 'Slash' by Slash, am dipping into Obama's book and have just started Bob Dylan's Chronicles, Volume 1.

I was looking at a needlework book so I could refresh my skills at macrame so i can make a choker for someone.

Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro

I'm reading Tricks of the Mind by Derren Brown, it's a good but slow read. I like the way he treats the reader as mildly intelligent. I hate being spoon fed. Also, it's a complicated read as he goes through tricks and you have to imagine him doing them which I'm sure uses a different bit of the brain than putting a novel's story together, I can feel them ache after a few chapters!

angela carter's the bloody chamber.

I gave up on Never Let Me Go. I'm now reading A Life in Pieces - Richard Baer.

I just finished Anthem by Ayn Rand, read it in one sitting. To describe it in one word: amazing, I highly reccomend it.

The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. Easy to get into and read, really liked it.

Lyndsey Harris? I didn't like that book at all.

Middlesex. Still.
It's brilliant... It's just so time-consuming!
