Anatomical Natt

Books, books, and books.

--I have many books that I have never read (or even cracked open); some are from Christmases and birthdays, but I never seem to have time to read one before I receive two more. When I am aged and decrepit, I know I'll have something to do with myself (though I do wish I could drag myself away from reading fics long enough to read something that is NOT Harry Potter or the Lord of the Rings).

News! I have received (from some lovely person) a gift card to Barnes and Noble. Isn't that great? I think so. The trouble? I don't know what to buy! I needn't buy anything, but I want to buy something before the time limit runs out because there is no use in wasting a gift card from a nice person. Which brings me to my question...

Any suggestions? What is your favorite book?

Been searching online for a while. Nothing seems to interest me. I wish to be interested.

--Have four separate photography essays to complete in two weeks. Not so bad considering the new lappie came with a nifty photo-editing program, so that I needn't rely on others for Photoshop. (Been spending time just manipulating pictures of Harry Potter characters for reasons of boredom and practice.) I do hope I don't waste the weekend again lingering around LJ.

Hi. Reached your blog by randomly reading ivyblossom's Friends page, and felt the need to comment.

If you're into the traditional fantasy scene and you don't mind a bit of slashiness here and there, starting Tanya Huff's "Sing the Four Quarters" series might be good. Or her book Summon the Keeper, which is a contemporary fantasy with a lovely sarcastic snarky style.

I also very much like Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves. It's sort of magical realism, with a pinch of the poetic and a fair bit of darkness mixed in.

Oh, and if you want to know the best book I've ever read (t3h best evar!!!!1), it's A Density of Souls by Christopher Rice. It's realistic fiction, but it's a lovely read. Christopher Rice (son of Anne Rice, if you're wondering) wrote it when he was only seventeen. Again, if you're into the slash fandom, you might be particularly interested in this book-- but it's really a universally wonderful read.

Less Than Zero, Brett Easton Ellis
The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky
