What I’m Reading.

Haven’t done one of these in a while…let’s see:

The Plague by Albert Camus. (I haven’t picked it up in a while…I was reading it when I would go to the laundramat, but my Mom fixed her dryer, so I just go there.)

Socialism:Past & Future by Michael Harrington. (Interesting book on what Socialism is, and why Russia and China were never actually Socialist).

A Prayer for America by Dennis Kucinich. (NOT RELATED TO THE SOCIALIST BOOK! I hate when people try to shut down Kucinich’s arguments by writing him off as a Communist. Anyway, it’s a collection of speeches and Essays by K-Dog.)

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. (I’m finally starting this journey of 1000 miles. I’ve always wanted to read this one, so the otter and I are reading it together. I’m about 10 pages in right now.)

Superman: Our Worlds at War by various. (Don’t bother. I may not finish it.)

Various other comic books, too numerous to list.

  1. Marquez is amazing! Absolutely stunning. When I read that book I started a little list inside of it though to keep the characters straight. Have you read Love in the Time of Cholera? That is one of the books that I sipped my way through. In doing research on Marquez and reading literary criticism of his works I once read that there was a Marquez scholar who took 10 years to read that book.

  2. Crap that didn’t make sense…. The person took 10 years to read 100 Years of Solitude not Love in the Time of Cholera. I just didn’t clarify well enough.

  3. I started The Plague years ago after hearing it read on the radio. I wish I had brought it with me. I read all the books that accompanied me in the first six weeks after I arrived.

  4. Superman stories, come to think about it, outside JLA, I don’t think I’ve read any good ones, at least not from the modern era.

  5. Anxious to hear what you think of 100 Years of Solitude, Jason! I don’t want to have to go through that many years to read it, if possible.
