    Finished reading Murakami's "Kafka on the Shore". It was something, I guess.

    Reading Martian. I never thought I'd have a good time reading about a guy sitting in a room by himself, doing not much at all. It's p. great.


    A troll does his work silently, softly, that those around him do not notice. True trolls do not require recognition, and so the best trolls go unknown.

    Does anyone have suggestions for books on visually impaired people, preferably memoirs?

    So I tried reading Foucault's Pendulum and bounced off of it a chapter in, because god damn this prose is impenetrable. Haven't dropped a book this fast since I cracked open and immediately closed Ulysses a few years back.

    It always feels a bit embarrassing to drop a critically acclaimed book, but forcing yourself to read something impenetrable isn't a good use of time.

    I was so sure that I'd enjoy The Man Without Qualities that I tracked down a rare translation of it and brought it with me on a cross-country journey. Didn't get past the first 25 pages.
