    Crime And Punishment

    Began reading Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, pretty heavy book. It is very introspective, and you really feel the torment of the main charecter. Just shortly after the crime has been commited...

    I Want To Read The Great Works In Liturature

    I've never been much for reading. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like to read. It's just never been my favorite thing to do. My English professor teachings awakened something inside me. And I realized I want to read the works of authors like Alice Walker, Hemingway, Poe(who I have...

    Not Sure Where to Start

    I had to read few in school, but now I am interested in trying some.  I just am unsure of where to start. I prefer reading non-fiction, but I think if I tried some classics, I could at least say I've read them, right?  All I had to read in school was: Great...

    Newer Novels

    The stories aren't as good. They tend to be either very poorly written or based on the classics. I'll skip to reading books which I know are going to be good.

    Mansfield Park

    I am currently reading Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. It's the first Austen book I have ever read. I do like it but in the sense that it evokes emotion. Though those emotions are mostly negative. I honestly want to hit Mrs. Norris. Fanny is a prude.  I do like William &...

    Virgil's "Aeneid"

    The translation by C.Day Lewis (who happens to have been actor Daniel Day Lewis's father) is absolutely stunning.
