Of Reading, University & Europe

This is what I have read so far this year (follow the link to my little review):

  1. Gehenna: The Final Night – Ari Marmell
  2. Girl With a Pearl Earring – Tracy Chevalier
  3. Tipping The Velvet – Sarah Waters
  4. Maimonides’ Principles – Aryeh Kaplan
  5. The Passion – Jeanette Winterson
  6. Mysterious Creatures – Nosson Slifkin

I’ve been reading a lot lately, and I intend to keep it up. If I can stay at the rate of 3 books per month, that’ll be awesome. I may be able to do more, who knows, but at the very least I am officially shooting for 30 books this year.

Oh, and wish me good luck. I already put in my application for grad school. Hoping to get into the Masters of Literature program at FIU. I’m shooting for that PhD, though; I wanna have Dr. in front of my name and annoy everyone who ever doubted I’d amount to little more than a pimply-faced, comic-book-reading, D&D-playing nerdoid. Granted, there aren’t many of those (I do have an amiable personality), but still. Bah, who cares about those people. We all know I wanna have a PhD cause I want that cool octagonal velvet cap and velvet gown you only get as a PhD graduate. Fashion, that’s why I want my degree.

And about the book I am currently reading, Neither Here Nor There: Travels In Europe by Bill Bryson, I am liking it a lot. I like travel memoirs. I like making my own better (something I intend to start working on soon), but it is a good second option, and beats whatever it is I am doing here at work.

Wishing I was in Dublin, or Venice, or London, or Paris… heck, even Rome will do (though not Naples… icky Naples)
