Anyway, I'm reading "Death of a Salesman" for this months' book report, and I'm in love with it. It's so captivating and mind-boggling with the different "episodes" the main character gets. It makes me feel like I'm reading about some old grandpa with memory problems.

I'm thinking about reading "The Invisible Man" or "Metamorphosis" next. I'll post about 'em when I get 'em. \o
Death of a Salesman ;____;

Man, Arthur Miller writes great stuff, but it's all so dang depressing.

Metamorphosis (the one by Kafka) was a great read. Haven't read The Invisible Man.

Currently reading The Metamorphoses (the book by Ovid, not by Kafka) again.

It's depressing, but it's a good kind of depressing.
He tells it like it really is -- depressing. No side tracking with things like love and romance -- just your suicidal/gloomy death depressing.

I've been OBSESSIVELY reading "The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl." Oh man, I haven't been this drawn in by a book since I was in high school reading Matt Reilly's "Temple." I can barely put it down. It's well written but definitely falls into a category that not everyone could get into.

I'm totally nerding out about this book. I'm gonna go back and read some more.

I just finished reading War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. It was a very good read, excellent descriptions and lots of insight into lives of civilians during war.

Next up on my list is Asimov's Foundation.

I finally made it on to the 5th book in the Outlander series, The Fiery Cross. The last book took me 2 weeks to read, thanks to internet distractions, Lego Batman and stupid work I like the series tho.

Lulz I'm re-reading Eldest before I start reading Brisingr. I'm also reading Bleach, FullMetal Alchemist, and I'm putting Gantz on hiatus atm. I'm also read AP magazines and Business daily (as part of study for my major >_>)

Lawlz, I had to do the Crucible's to when I was at High School.
TITUBAAAA!!!1
I hated that book >_>
But the movie was strangely entertaining, but not as funny as the 1971 Macbeth movie (old men trying to trip each other in the final fight scene, classic!)

sry, kinda off-topic there

That's the only one in the series I haven't read yet lol. I have it on my book shelf, tho.

I'm still reading To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee. Kinda slow for me.
