what book are you currently reading/have read recently? this is also to be a general exchange about literature and migrants' tastes. feel free to discuss any book/author you like!

i've recently been digging/obsessing through katherine dunn's bibliography and somewhat more generally, finishing house of leaves. i've also been planning to upload a bunch of literature from life to take with me when i transfer.

 No.1469

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
for school

 No.1470

I'm also a huge fan of Borges and his work.

 No.1472

Survivor Type by Stephen King. As a short story it's still pretty fucked (self-cannibalism), but partly in a good way.

 No.1473

Sophocles' Theban plays. I'm trying to refresh my ancient greek so I'm reading them from the original text with side-by-side translation. So far I've read Antigone and Oedipus at Colonus, and postponed Oedipus Rex for sometime later this fall.

>finishing house of leaves

I've had it in my to-read list for quite some time, since it has been praised as a rather unique read. Are you liking it so far?

Surface Detail By Ian Banks, his books are always great for losing yourself in a space opera, best sci-fi for me

 No.2019

art of war by sun tzu and sun pin. I've actually wanted to read this for a long time, but only recently managed the get one really cheap.
I have some stuff that I want to read, like brave new world, that I can't get through, and Dune, that I REALLY can't get through. also man in the high castle, and some other stuff, but I can't get myself to read recently.

 No.2034
