Reading A Discovery of Witches
122 pages in and I just realized I have been picturing Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling as the main character, Diana Bishop.
I think it’s the compact yet physically fit description, as well as the blond hair and female strength and independence.
Never mind that Clarice Starling isn’t a mythical creature such as a witch, and Hannibal isn’t a vampire… although… He could be.
A lot of parallels here.
Finally finished it. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys reading. #reading #book
Man is as much a parasite on the cow as the tapeworm is on man: We have suckled their udders like leeches. ‘Man the cow parasite’ is probably how non-man defines man in his zoology books.

The slides of my movies into books presentation :)
(I don’t agree that all of these movies were bad or have ruined the books, but fuck it, it’ll make a fun presentation)
My favorite slide (so far, I have a Stephen King slide coming too) for my books into movies presentation :D
I really really really want to own this edition o.o
Needless to say I think I’m really enjoying this book.
Fear is the relinquishment of logic, the willing relinquishing of reasonable patterns. We yeild to it or we fight it, but we cannot meet it halfway.
The Doctor -The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Some recommended Halloween reading :)
I’ve tried to write a book before, if you want to read it?
It’s not the one I want to do this time, I think I have a more solid idea this time. That one worked better as a short story.
But I’d like to know what you think of my writing overall, if not the actual story that I tried to start. Yes?
If you think Lolita is “romantic”
You really need to read Alice I Have Been. It’s beautiful.
And on that previous note,
my next book is a zombie book. :)
I would like to encourage all of you readers out there to read Among The Wonderful by Satcy Carlson
It’s about a young Phineas T. Barnum arriving in New York in 1842 to transform an ordinary museum into an “ark for public imagination.” It’s narrated by the museum’s taxidermist who is horrified by the changes and a giantess.
“Within the walls of Barnum’s museum, ancient tribal feuds play out in the midst of an unlikely community of marvels.”
Really worth the read.
I haven’t gotten around to doing the research to see if there is link of truth in this story and the Barnum and Bailey circus, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
Amazon sent me two copies of John Irving’s Setting Free The Bears
And I don’t have either receipt so who wants to do a book trade? :)
