Are there any "essential classics" that you feel no interest in reading? Something you always see on lists or in threads, but feel no desire to ever pick up a copy?
Bible. I feel compelled to read it, knowing it's importance, and it's not that I'm an fedora atheist, but when I think about reading it I feel an eagerness similar to what I would feel in considering reading a 2,000 page book of tax codes
I loved the good fucking shit out of Middlemarch. It's a super impressive piece of writing. I couldn't put it down.
If you ever read Balzac or Dickens, do also try to fuck with Middlemarch
Yes the course you take will be inherently different to what it was before. You're in a different stream of causal action now. We are closer because i triggered that action with a high amount of self awareness.
maybe you will not get hit by a car now, maybe you will, maybe you'll land that job, win big, maybe not. Good luck.
You're thirsty. You might reach for your drink. You might decide you can wait awhile before you drink. Throat a little dry. Probably will leave it. Not sure now. Quite thirsty. Should drink but don't want to now. you're gonna have a drink. You're also gonna go thirsty.
your tongue is starting to stick to the insides of your mouth now. dryness increases at a faster rate it seems, probably just more noticeable. you think why don't you just drink whats your problem?
Reading Sense and Sensibility right now, it's the good kind of boring but you're not missing out.
As for me, I will NEVER EVER (EVER) read The Old Man and the Sea. Don't even have a valid reason, I just dislike the title.
