I'm reading Seneca's dialogues 'on anger' at the moment (three dialogues, I'm still reading part one). I'm currently on a studying brake, so aren't really putting in effort. It's quitte interresting to read though, since Seneca made a sort of angermanagement therapy out of it. Ethics is good stuff.

Try 1985 by Anthony Burgess.

I'm reading The Ginger Man. It's a good book, and it's interesting for anybody who knows Ireland and Irish people today, to see how much the place has changed in 60 short years. The characters are great, all of them.

Have you read Ham on Rye? Probably my favorite Bukowski novel; most of it deals with adolescence though, so it might not have the same effect if you're reading it in adulthood...I don't know.

It really is an amazing book. There is no way I could have fully appreciated it back in high school--the way reality seemlessly floats into hallucination and insanity...the brilliance there would have been completely lost on me, especially before I started doing drugs. You know, Kesey came up with the writing style for the book during a Mescaline trip.

Read Freakonomics some time ago by Stephen D. Levitt. Brilliant book.

Now I'm reading a danish book, a teacher book lol..

It's called Pædagoisk Relationskompetence.

About the relations between teachers and students.

Vurrrr interresting stuff indeed.

Blood Done Sign My Name...summer assignment. Its about the town I live in though, so its kind of interesting.

See, when I was little, my dad was friends with a guy that had lived in this town his whole life and he used to show up completely unannounced at my house and talk about the 60s and 70s to my brother and me (this is such a long sentence). Its pretty cool to read a book with those stories in it. And it didn’t beat around the bush at the beginning- I hate books that take forever to get to the plot. So maybe I wont mind reading it…
