Catch - 22. I haven't read it before and it was cheap so I thought why not.

I hope it's as good as it's meant to be, I hate being disappointed by books that don't live up to their hype.

Gothic Charm School- Jillian Venters, The Goth Bible - Nancy Kilpatrick, and The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan because they are forcing me to read the lightning thief for a school project.

I read that last November. It was OK considering it was aimed at tween readers caught in pubescent identity crises . Robert Smith was 10 when that book was published. I wonder if it was really a childhood favorite of his or if he picked up on it later. It certainly shares themes with several Cure songs.

The Right Hand of Evil by John Saul.

Then, probably start on the Wheel of Time series. Perhaps. Possibly.

Forever Barbie: the Unauthorized Biography of a Real Doll

I went to Barnes & Noble today and had to pick up a couple of their Barbie collector guides...omwagwad...they have pictures and everything, almost every single one. I felt like I did when I discovered Barbie Shanghai - just an N.R.F.B. taking her first plastic-heeled step out into the real, deluxe set, accessories included world.

Writing The Natural Way--Gabriele Rico

This chick has one--maybe two--creative writing tips and she's made a 260 page book out of them. Gotta love those writing advice books.

The only writing book I read as an adult was Stephen Fry's The Ode Less Traveled, I couldn't stick with practicing poetry but I still like the book and recommend it to anyone who wants to write poetry, and I try to force it on people who make me read their nonsensical angst fest prose.

Anywho, finished The Feminine Mystique today, it took me a while. It was good but she lost me after quoting Freud about homosexuality, saying that homosexuals are basically immature men, and by forcing women to stay home it makes men more feminine and therefore more overtly homosexual. So yeah its horribly heteronormative and completely ignores women of colour and anyone below middle class, but it was 1963, so I don't hold it against her or the rest of the book. Wish she made another edition after psychology stopped treating homosexuality as a mental disorder.

Started Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.

Aaaaand I have the book finished already, it was that hard to put down. Clearly I need to read more Atwood.

Now reading Mushishi Volume Two! To tie me over until I go to work tomorrow and pick up another novel.

The Haunting of Hill House--Shirley Jackson

I've always liked the 1963 movie version and now I see the book is even better....but that is usually the case.

I'm reading "Sexual Knowledge" its a "sex-ed" book from 1917. I've learned a lot about how masturbation can make you a "slope shouldered sissy" or prevent you from "receiving the crown of womanhood". I'm so glad I was born in the latter half of the 20th century.

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. Good, quality arguments here, no BS or cop outs and almost anyone can understand his logic.
