"Limited drawing skills are OK if they are offset by a fearless commitment to putting images on paper."

"The difficult part is continuously realizing when you've stopped enjoying the process, and re-aligning yourself. It's kind of like meditation/being an art ninja..." ceddo
Starting to re-read How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff, and reading a new book i bought today, which is Kissed By An Angel by Elizabeth Chandler. The next book I aim to read is Perfume by Patrick Süskind - we started studying the first chapter in English Literature class, and that basically drew me in the description is amazing, and it's brilliantly written.
i love void trilogy so far and thought commonwealth saga was WAY better than night's dawn, which i felt was just silly for the most part. Had a few cool bits tho.
currently reading Matter by Iain M. Banks.
I borrowed Halo: Fall of Reach from a friend about a week ago so I would be familiar with the story before the game comes out. As it turns out, I'm on the second-to-last chapter.
After that, I'll either pick up the rest of the series, or read some of Stephen King's work. I read Pet Sematary a while back and really enjoyed it.
My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.
I'm still reading The Myths of Innovation by Scott Berkun. He's tearing down all the mythological and fun stories about the big innovations and inventions of the past centuries. Newton never sat under an appletree...
Piękno potężne (eng. Powerful beauty) by Wiktor Zin. It's book written by one polish architect about his observations and memories connected with Egyptian and Indian ancient architecture. Apart from interesting stories he did fantastic drawings with ink and charcoal of what he saw there.
Currently reading Wuthering Heights.
I Drink for a Reason - David Cross
However none of my friends without scientific background were actually able to get passed the first haft of the first book...
I still recommend the book to anyone but now warned them that they might need to do an effort in the 150 first pages and add that it pays to give this book a chance
I'm an art junkie and you're my fix!
Loved the book. if ur gonna read the next few skip The Flood its just a waste of time, its not written by the same Author, and is just pretty much takes u step by step through the first game.
Haven't Read past Contact harvest but its defiantly a great series but i think a lot of people are gonna dismiss the books because they think their just riding the high from the games.
Just Finished 100 Demons
Please people never pick this book up. It is with out a doubt the worst thing iv ever read. Self proclaimed artist/writer Lynda Berry gives 17 examples of trials she has went through in her life, such as figuring out shes not a good dancer to finding out she likes to write. She even states that she dose not believe u need to try to advance your self in art/ writing.
also she illustrates all the pages in a terrible cartoon style that absolutely destroys any credibility she has left.
Read this summer;
Finished the last 100 pages of The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Got about 75% of the way thru The Joke by Milan Kundera
Secret Invasion, Marvel comics graphic novel.
and devoured the first two Harry Potter books. I'm on the third now. Never read 'em before til now.

My Blog -- Feed Me Toast!
I'm about halfway through reading The Catcher in the Rye.
And I just finished reading How I Became a Famous Novelist.
Currently reading In Defense of Food, may eventually get to Left Hand of Darkness.
Just finished Homeland by R.A. Salvatore, and just picked up a WoW novel. I'm a bit skeptical on how it will present itself, but I have hopes.
Also, has anyone read When You Are Engulfed in flames, by David Sedaris? From reading the back of the book it looks interesting, also a couple friends have recommended it to me.
If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?

I'm finishing up "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell, then I'm on to "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I like to go back and forth between non-fiction and fiction... grows my brain and feeds my soul, in that order.
Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut
Haven't read a lot of books, but this is definitely my favorite. The characters are just so strange it makes me look at people differently now. And it's made my dreams pretty fucking weird too hah. (I'm going to wear a blue mark on my cheek for halloween, just to see if anybody gets it lol)
Anyone recommend what I should read next "Hard-Boiled Wonderland" or "A Wild Sheep Chase"?

I just picked up my dads collection of American novelists, so I've got Theodore Dreiser, Sinclair Lewis, Jack London, John Steinbeck etc to get through. Should keep me busy for a while.
