    Armstrong called: Pops, by Terry Teachout. I'm only up to his early career, but I'm already finding him to be a complex and elusive figure. You get a really good look at all the challenges Louis had to overcome and what an enormous talent he had. So far the book seems to be...

    I love vampire stuff.

    It reads beautifully. Reading has been a big part of what I do for a long time and recently I haven't been reading. Breaking myself out of that and picking up Dracula feels good. mirabile dictu

    From time to time, I dip into various chapters of a book written by Lynne Franks, "Grow". This time I've chosen to re-read Chapter 2 which is about respectful self-care and staying healthy. One of the main messages in this chapter is that when we nurture ourselves well, we feel...

    Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov.

    The fifth read of my all-time second favourite novel. I just love this story. Deeply moving, tragic, vastly humane, yet at the same time wickedly funny and parodic. Brilliantly conceived, with meticulously crafted characters, a daring, breathtaking plot, sensational imagery...

    I'm reading The Perks of being a wallflower.

    I feel like the author is trying to send the message that you may feel meaningless and alone..but you aren't. And that no matter how small you seem, there is always someone who loves you. I can't wait to know what's gonna be in the end *O*

    Critical Sociology. Edited by Paul Connerton.
