Got one for X-Mas, really digging it so far. Some of the prices for older books that have cheap paperbacks could be better though.

^I sort of liked American Psycho and it's style was novel and all that, but did you really think it was that good? I felt it was too repetitive, a 400 page book and like 300 pages were description, I understand it's a satire on the rich and the power of money and what it does to people so the description was necessary (not that much though) but I thought it went over the top.

Good point; though with the over-the-top descriptions, I felt I was actually Bateman.

Or it could be I'm an Ellis fan to begin with.

Ever read Less Than Zero? Wild.

Nah that's the only one of his i've read, I might look into Less Than Zero then to see if it's his style that I don't particularly like or just American Psycho.

On Borders closing ^^^
There are probably going to be a handful of book stores around sooner or later... If you have an eReader the only point of buying a book will be to have a tangible copy...Or if it isn't available for your ereader. Personally I would still purchase books I really like to have physical copies of my favorite books or important books. I do believe a personal library is important to keep. But the fact that my Kindle can hold over one thousand books is unmatched... The fact that I can go online and find thousands of books for free (even paid ones) is unmatched. The fact that I can find definitions of words instantly, and leave notes and highlights on the spot then have those notes and highlights printed out for research purposes is unmatched. Also I can buy a book on the toilet and start reading.




Certain books like picture books (the one's Rizzoli and other publishers make) and collectibles would hold it's value...


I've heard people actually say they don't like eReaders, and the fact is old farts who don't like eReaders are the problem with society today. Technology should be our slave it should make our lives easier. Example, instead of going to the deli every morning for a newspaper it's sent directly to your ereader-possibly before you start your day. No one can tell me that the convenience and space saving of an eReader is inferior to a book.

THE BLOOD MERIDIAN: OR THE EVENING REDNESS IN THE WEST by Cormac McCarthy

The dialogue is like a strange shakespearean southern slang. It's amazingly violent and incredibly written. The language takes some getting used to but it's one of the best books i've read in a long time. I highly recommend it.

FInished No Death, No Fear by Thich Nhat Hanh. It's a Buddhist book, and it gave me a ton of perspective on death and how to approach it. I've had some circumstances in my life recently that made me have great fear of the time I have left on this planet, and to say this book completely eradicated all of it would be an understatement. I've been studying buddhist philosophy for a few years but not to the extent that i've wanted to. This book is pushing me in that direction of life, and I give it my 100% recommendation if any of you have lost anyone recently, and don't know how to make the pain stop.
