I'm not very far in, but it seems pretty interesting from what I've read about it.

I've only a got a week and two days to try and read two books in (before school ends, yes I know, bad time to decide to read for fun, but hey...) but I'm trying anyways.

I'm currently reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (both great writers). So far it's silly and fun, reads very much like Hitchhiker's Guide. I hope to finish it, if my bloody school work doesn't bug my brains out first.

Then I'll also try a dabble in the The Chocolate War, strongly encouraged (via mallets and painfully sharp needles) by Vinny.

No guarantees I'll finish either. But I'm in for a hell of a ride.

Good man.

A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson

I just started it, but it's quite informative and rather humorous so I'm enjoying it so far.

I love that book. It very well may be my favorite book by either of them, though I do love Mort by Terry Pratchett.

I'm currently reading Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen. I'm in for a book with very little brain power needed. That's probably why I chose this book. And I just finished reading Parade of Shadows (don't know author), and that was pretty good.

Ay, sweet, it has an afterward (whatever that is) by Dean Koontz.


Does reading what I'm typing count? I am writing a story. I'm like, always writing a story, it seems.

Winesburg, Ohio was published in 1919. Why would Dean Koontz do anything with that?


I'm trying to read "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy now, but I'm not liking it much.

Yay! I was able to finish two books within about a week or so. Excellent. Now I can finish school and write some books of my own.

* Good Omens was fantastic as I had said. I loved how all of the subplots came together at the end; and I love when Aziraphale was possessing everyone. I loved the relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley, those two are great fun together. A religious odd couple. I do hope they make a film soon. A good film. It's got marvelous potential.

* The Chocolate War was pretty good, interesting, full of suspense and such. But I hate sad endings. I mean, the thing with the black box, something should have come of that. Bringing it out only piqued the reader, but that was for not. I hate those kind of endings because I'm one who doesn't accept such endings in real life. Oh well. I suppose those are the warnings, life is the real ending.

Throughout I found myself finding similarities to 1984: the main character rebelling against a well established order, the manipulation of the masses, the endings where the rebel is beaten into submission, forced to renounce his rebellion and to give into the engine. Eh. I'll always be a rebel. I plan on possibly watching the film version.

Although I must say I think I'll leave Cormier alone for a while. Too depressing. I don't need that. That's not entirely how real life is fortunately, and if I want to be depressed by mankind all I need to do is overhear a conversation. (haha, just kidding, I love you wacky humans)

Winnesburg, Ohio is the book.

Winesburg, Ohio is an actual place.

And I don't know why Dean Koontz would write a new afterword or whatever it was he wrote. Why would Stephen King donate $12,999 for some US soldiers to be able to visit their families for Christmas?

Yes, $12,999. Apparently he thought 13 was an unlucky number; somebody else who worked with him chipped in one dollar to make it even.



Speaking of Stephen King and getting back on topic, I think I'm gonna start reading Under the Dome again.
