PROJECT GUTENBURG

Sunk in your own thoughts, you may be only peripherally aware of what's going on around you. In fact, you may be so preoccupied that you bump into a table or bark your shin on a curb. Pull yourself out of dreamland when you get behind the wheel of the car, however. Inspired creative ideas may churn up from your subconscious. Don't dismiss them without examining all the angles.

When the last living thing
Has died on account of us,
How poetical it would be
If Earth could say,
In a voice floating up
Perhaps
From the floor
Of the Grand Canyon,
"It is done.
People did not like it here."

this is my reading list:

The Glass House by Jeannette Walls
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner
White Oleander by Janet Fitch
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
Stranger In A Strange Land by Robert Heilein

I started Catch-22 near the end of August, but I stopped reading it because of the amount of school work I had. I'm going to finish reading it the second my last final is over because of what I read so far - it's an amazing book.
