thoughts on watchmen though so far, phaggot?

And yeah I've heard horror stories of it taking at least a month to finish this book (that's if you're a speedreader and not even taking all the footnotes into account)

once you graduate from that though, there's always this

If you stopped right before chapter 4-6, that's when the book hits it's pea and when it's really on that other level. Before that it was mostly pretty good (I thought fantastic, but yeah).

i find it way harder to read fiction than i should, lol. don't know why, but non-fiction seems to capture my attention more. i feel would prefer it to be the other way round. kinda embarrassing, lol.

good writing's good writing tho i guess.

and yea. finished 3.

I'm the completely opposite I have to force myself to read nonficiton because I know just reading fiction is just tunnel vision. I'm reading 1776 by David McCullough (as well as a bunch of other books atm), and it tells a certain a certain historical event in a narrative format and makes it really interesting. Just like reading a novel.

Fleka is reading out of control! Catcher In The Rye is one of my favorite books.

About Millenium I watched the movies. The original ones, the movies are great, so I guess the books too.

Should we suggest him to read El Quijote , Calandre? haha
