I've lost my 6th sense for detecting irony on forums. Is it irony or not? tard

They're really good books. But isn't reading them once or twice enough?

Actually, I very rarely read the same book twice, except for some rare exceptions. There are so much to read, can't waste the time.

I try to read the Hobbit about once a year. It's been my favorite book since I was 10. I've read through the Malazan series twice, A Canticle for Leibowitz a couple times, and the same with Blood Meridian and a few other books. Depends if I feel like I'm getting something out of it and not just reading it for the story alone.

When I read it (being 12 or something) I didnt pay attention so much for the first chapters and instead I visualized Bilbo as this:



Tried to read the latter trilogy but it was at the time when the movies came out so I remember there was a spoiler about Aragorn being Strider on the backside of a carton of milk, which made me alittle pissed so I stopped, still The Hobbit feels like the best book. Too bad the movie was shit. icon_hug

My brother had to read it when he was in middle school. We had rented the Rankin-Bass animated movie from the library before he read the book proper and I really liked that, which is what spurred my reading the book for the first time. After he read his copy I borrowed it and kept it, more or less. I also did that with a few other books he read in high school like Siddhartha. The ones I ended up reading were shit. They moved to more contemporary books by the time I got there.

Been a while since I went dacing.

Spacecat enters my mind whenever I gaze up at the night sky.

And I often ponder. Did megs have a cat of his own back then? Did he ever get one?

Are we all geting old?
Approaching 40 with 4 kids.
Can't even drink n e more. 4 beers and I get hung over. This is bad since kids make you want to drink.
