Currently, I am reading "House of Leaves", but it's a very complex read. It takes a lot of patience to get through it, and much like the house the book describes, while you may make progress in the book, it feels like you haven't moved forward at all.

In short, I love it.

Babel 17. It's another sci fi "masterpiece", it's by Sam R Delaney and it's quite good - if a little hard to concentrate on sometimes. Probably from the 50s or 60s or something like that, so it's better in that regard I guess.

Reading comics sucks because you always finish them the same day you get them.

The entire plot line and multiple endings of the first Silent Hill game. Tired now.

I got a copy of the Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles, but I've yet to read it. I'm kinda excited - people I trust have said it's good.

Room by Emma Donaghue

It is from the perspective of a five year old child who is imprisoned in a room that he has never left, with his mother. In his mind only things in the room are "real" other things are "tv" and happen in "outer space". I am taking a break now because I don't want to be sad at the moment.

I really want to give Room a try, always seamed like a good reed. Just curious, how did they end up in Room, or is that part of the whole story's central plot?

Homestuck.

I'm not really sure how to describe it; it's kind of a webcomic/choose your own adventure/animation/illustrated story hybrid, and it feels like something that could have only come from the internet. It's kinda fantastic, if a bit slow at the beginning.

Neat music, too.
