  • fave books of all time:

    sophie's world (jostein gaarder) --- philosophy in a nutshell (well almost!)

    le hussard sur le toit/ the horseman on the roof (jean giono) --- love in the time of cholera gone dark

    love in the time of cholera (gabriel garcia marquez) --- as funny as ggm gets

    como agua para chocolate/ like water for chocolate (laura esquivel) --- magical realism at its best

    it (stephen king) --- scared the **** out of me. now i hate clowns, and those who love clowns (my apologies to german moreno)

    the lord of the rings trilogy (jrr tolkien) --- nothing comes close

    the silmarillon (jrr tolkien) --- epic saga like no other

    question: do we consider comic books as books? because i really loved neil gaiman's series on the endless (especially "time of your life", where death takes center stage)

    hi to everyone! i'm your new neighbor.
  • has anyone here read angela carter?

    i should have included her "the infernal desire machines of dr. hoffman". galeng nya. you should all read it.

    and anais nin's erotica, btw.
