Do graphic novels count? If so, I'm rereading The Sandman collection.


Yes, why not?

And trying to read Les Miserables for my French Lit class. Gah. I hate that book. French Lit makes my skin crawl (notable exceptions aside).


Gosh, such literature is classic!

Eh. I'm a fan of the Russian classics. The French just don't do it for me. Apart from Stendhal, Voltaire and Sartre (and I suppose Zola's Germinal), I really just don't like it.

I've been tuning in to Russian lit more recently; their short stories are simply the best for me. Penguin doesn't translate enough of those beauties.

Have you read Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita? It's one of my favourites.

There exist these buildings called libraries. You go inside, pay a small fee and you're free to borrow any book you want. Ingenious, isn't it? :P

j/k But you should definitely read it. It's awesome.

Also, I'm done with Sandman and am now reading Martin's A Dance with Dragons in my spare time.

The libraries I go to don't actually stock such books I think :P And by golly, you have to pay over there?

A yearly fee grants you access to most of the libraries in the city. Notable exceptions include the British Council Library and the National Student Library.
