Slights/ Kaaron Warren

The Borders here is going out of business so I got a few books for uber cheap :)

Anyways..this book so far is okay. The main character Stephaine, has died already three times in her life so far. Her Soul is sent to dark, damp room full of the people she has annoyed/pissed off/slighted. The room is FULL of people lol. In her mind dying so many times makes her wiser than most people.(which I guess is true when I think about. If you know what happens after life, you more than likely have a pretty good grip on it..or whatever)..but in my opinon she is a total bitch. She lived a fucked up life full of pervisions, her dad died when she was young and her mom is kinda nutso, so her metal state as a child is actually one of a young adult.

Apparently later on in the book she kills people, than brings them back to life to ask them if they went to the room.

I'm reading Blood, Sweat, and Tears by Bear Grylls. Certainly no where near a pulitzer prize or extremely thought provoking, but I like Bear and I find this book entertaining.

This thread turned south quickly.
Better drink my own piss.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

i dont really like bear grylls. sure his tv show is entertaining....but only because its fun to joke about how he climbs stuff all the damn time. so now whenever people tell me they like bear i feel the need to tell them about less stroud.

Less Stroud is the man.

I am immensely happy to have found a few passages in Songs Of The Doomed, which I hadn't come across before...now my focus switches to Hunter's widow, and increasingly angry questioning of WHY THE FUCK IS THE MUTINEER TAKING SO LONG?

I have devoured with joy and many laughs from the depths of my belly, Volaire's high quality Candide...and am now, heading deep into Steppenwolf, by Herman Hesse.

I'm currently reading JRR Tolkiens epic tome (LOTR), which many of you will know as a smash blockbuster hit in the early 2000s. The book is immensely better than the films, which were good in their own right, but lacked the poetry and songs of the text, which are incredibly beautiful.

Ikku, the books are fantastic, and there's so much more to them than the films, but I find Tolkiens writing to be tedious at times. I bet if Tolkien had his way, the book would be atleast double of what it is, and no added story. just details about the scenery.

I love the details about the scenery. I can be really high and just imagine myself there.

Using your brain for a change.

It's an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) book that I'm reading again. NLP is like psychology, but simplified like crazy in insanely easier steps on the control of the mind and goes in a little detail on how modern psychiatry is bullshit in the entire process that they go about in dealing with people.
