    I know graphic novels don't really count as books necessarily, but in the spirit of Halloween and Batman's 75th anniversary I picked this up from the bookstore. The art was awesome and the story was great. The ending was really good, got a chuckle out of me. My only complaint is that I wish it had been longer, but I can see why it was written the way it was and any longer would have been overkill.

    I wish my book would show up in the mail :(

    Now reading Pericles. It's actually rather dull so far. Wife just got pwnt by forming babby during a storm at sea.

    Edit: I just read that the first half of the play prolly wasn't written by Bill. Well, it's all uphill from here then.

    This book is fucking hilarious. It's a story about two internet dwellers from Quebec writing a book so they can have enough money to go some town in the U.S called Bird-in-Hand.

    What's so fun about this book is the fact that it uses the internet all the bloody time. From going to Family Watchdog to randomly stalk registered sex offenders in the U.S or using Google map to describe how they are going to get to Bird-in Hand, the guy who wrote has spent way too much time on the internet.

    The cover reminds me of this one I read in jail, it fell apart so I kept the cover for a poster I'm building from old book covers.

    i'm so happy you took the opportunity to make your daily asspoundings an educational experience
    as for my library i got 5 books on mexico and its history today and i'm already over halfway through the first book
    i'm taking history of mexico in the spring semester so i wanted to do research beforehand

    on a sidenote, i think the correct term for people who do extracurricular reading outside of the class a) over a month before the class starts and b) over 5 books worth is called "fucking nerd"

    yes
    i actually read and listen to history because i enjoy it
    and have some kind of ocd compulsion about learning more about topics that interest me
    i listen to audiobooks about history or philosophy to help me sleep at night otherwise it usually takes a few hours
    took a class in college about china and one about india/se asia because i don't know enough yet
    (as though you can know enough about most anything)
    need to study more south american history and get more details on ancient/medieval era sub saharan africa pretty shaky on those zones as well
    i have spend hours trying to catalogue the knowledge i "know" to see the gaps in my overall survey of world history; helps me not think about other topics like family problems
    still have a lot of history to study and i will until the day i die

    Maybe you could find a book about how to not post like a gaylord?

    Perhaps "De-gayifying Your Shitposts for Ex-Con Dummies".

    Or "How I survived jail by becoming a powerbottom".

    They only had the first three in the library.
    They were very good; gave a lot of laughs.

    Was not Multnomah county I wish it had been would have been better all around for me.

    Was never sent to the hole just received a warning for having too many books and magazines.

    The magazines were all Science Magazine or Nature Magazine and therefore way out of my league past the precis of each article. I'm a historian damn it not a trained chemist, physicist, biologist, etc...
    GodfatherBook.
    Wasn't there long enough to read all the Puzo novels they had but I read three others as well. I was very impressed with the pacing and use of language in his writing, something to aspire towards as a writer myself...

    Palahniuk writes pretty well, but he's so obviously filled with hatred and subsconscious self-loathing that I guessed he is an homo just out of reading his books, lol. And he is, of course. :D

    i don't mind Palahniuk, but i think his gimmicky schtick can get a bit old. after reading a few of his books they all started going in one ear and out the other. none of them were particularly memorable.

    or maybe i just have no taste, both are very possible

    Yeah, same to me...i think that's part of what i'm talking about, his books are more about emotionally manipulating the reader than a really interesting and definite argument...and so, they are unmemorable on the long run
