Yesterday while in the bookstore I came across a book titled "The Industrial Vagina". Naturally, I was intrigued by the title and picked it up hoping it would be about advances in the field of robot sex and its possible effects on the future of society. Instead, it was about how the international sex trade is propagated by chauvinist men (i.e. all men) who feel threatened by the rising power of women in developed countries. I was offended by the deception of the title, and I think the author owes me an apology for trying to trick me into reading her book. Plus she's probably a dyke.

So anyway, general literature thread.

I recently just finished A Canticle For Leibowitz, which is great for me since I hardly ever finish any of the books I read these days.

I usually buy at least one book on my every trip to the bookstore (happens only a few times a month so I can afford the temptation), but I really should be trying to back off. A growing backlog of already shelves of unread books probably isn't very useful when all I seem to do these days is read the internet.

Yesterday while in the bookstore I came across a book titled "The Naked Ape". Naturally, I was intrigued by the title and picked it up hoping it would be about advances in the field of fur-less sex-monkeys and their possible effects on the future of society. Instead, it was about how human behaviour has largely evolved to meet the challenges of prehistoric life as a hunter-gatherer. I was offended by the deception of the title, and I think the author owes me an apology for trying to trick me into reading his book. Plus he's probably a kike.

I used to read quite a bit, mostly in the vein of fantasy. Not sure what happened, but I stopped at some point in my late teens. The last book I finished was A Clockwork Orange. This was after I stopped reading, and I'm not sure why I picked it up. It was just so short that there was no harm, I guess. I actually left several books half-read, and have not completed them to this day. I did try to start anew on The Once and Future King once, but I couldn't find it in me to get all the way through.

Last thing I read was Reaper Man, a few months ago. Death is ℳℴℯ~

Crime And Punishment is sitting on top of my desk waiting for me to start reading it again, but it always makes me think of athens sucking Dostoyevsky's dick so I've been avoiding it.

It's shameful that athens is able to ruin a great work of literature like that, but I know what you mean. I guess it highlights his general shittiness as a human being.

I'm going to the bookstore tomorrow to get a couple of textbooks, and I'll hopefully find something interesting to buy too.
