    Right now I'm reading The Iliad.
    Was it the same ending as the movie?

    Currently reading "Heart of a Dog", a short novel by Mihhail Bulgakov, do recommend.
    Also reading "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" by Haruki Murakami, but find it kinda hard to get into the story and it's a pretty fat book, so I might drop it.
    Also took "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick from the library today.

    I have a huge to-read pile which seems to be getting bigger, whether it's new books ro ones I want to eventually re-read. I've just finished reading Enduring Love by Ian McEwan... what a brilliant book.

    Currently I'm reading:
    - Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
    - Tigers Are Better Looking by Jean Rhys
    - Othello by William Shakespeare (for my English literature class)
    - The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson

    Not reading any novels right now. I'm reading short fiction. Asimov's, Analog and Fantasy and Science Fiction magazines.

    I have also found that I really like listening to audio PodCasts on the web of short fiction. Mostly Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror. Some fine podCasts for this are Escape Pod, Pod Castle, Pseudo Pod and Starship Sofa which is a Pod Cast Magazine that has poetry, stories and science fact articles in audio. Also Starship Sofa is the first Podcast to win a Hugo Award. It's worth looking into.

    Eh, been a while, might as well update. (Update, procrastinate... po-tay-to, po-tah-to...)

    Most Recently Finished:
    Rampant, by Diana Peterfreund. Most storybooks portray unicorns as wise and gentle, even sparkly and whimsical. Astrid's mother, however, insists that they were in fact bloodthirsty carnivores with venomous horns - further insisting that one of their ancestors led the last great unicorn hunt that wiped them out a couple hundred years ago. So who's right? Astrid, a high school sophomore, learns the hard way, when a unicorn nearly kills her boyfriend. Needless to say, it wasn't the least bit gentle or in any way whimsical. Before she knows it, she's shipped off to Rome, where a desperate attempt to locate worthy hunters - virgin females descended from specific ancestors, who display preternatural skills in dealing with the beasts - is underway.
    Worth reading for the concept - which draws on global unicorn mythos, in which unicorns were often far less sweet and gentle than modern media depicts them - though the story itself hit some lulls and hitches.

    Just Started:
    Boneshaker, by Cherie Priest. Steampunk, zombies, and turn-of-the-century Seattle, according to the cover and reviews... I just started it, so it's much too early to say just how I feel about it. I have read books that started faster, though, I'll say that much...

    Go find something flat, and scribble on it. People have been doing that for tens of thousands of years, and it's mostly been ok.

    Currently reading Metro 2033.

    Btw, is Russian very hard to translate to English? Because the sentence structures seem a bit off most of the time.
