So what have you been all reading? Write about it here. Share your thoughts on books you've enjoyed reading (or haven't), post a (brief) review. That's it.

Currently I am reading "Sofandi a feigarsi" which is goes a bit into the reasons why the Icelandic banking system collapsed. It's a good & short book that doesn't waste the readers time with too much and is pretty direct.

Last thing I was reading was Thucydides & the History of the Peloponnesian War.


The parallels between what happened in 5th century BC Greece and the conflicts in the modern world are compelling.

Just finished reading The Story of CRASS. That was pretty engaging. Quite a diufferent tale to that which I had imagined.

Otherwise it's Principles Of Macroeconomics and Advertising, Promotion and other Aspects Of Integrated Marketing. None more exciting than these he he

There's a documentary about their 'commune' aswell. They might be over 50 but still as idealistic as back in the day.

Last read was Nigeria: a country of corruption. Last non-study related read (still haven't finished it): Monaldi & Sorti - Imprimatur.

Just finished Lovecraft's The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, hadn't read that one in almost 10 years, although I've gone through his short stories several times every now and then. I had almost forgotten how great it was.

Otherwise I've been a bit lazy reading anything but some mags/zines these days, I think I'll pick up some stuff I haven't read along the lines of HPL and other Weird Tales writers. William Hope Hodgson's The House on the Borderland perhaps.

I've always thought that this particular story was a bit funny, to me at least. "The Call of Cthulu", "The Rats in the Walls" and "The Haunter Of The Dark" are among my favourites.

Funny in what way? This is one of my, if not the, favorites by Lovecraft. Could have something to do with the fact that it was the first story I read by him. I think this one, Pickman's Model and The Lurker... are the best.

Tyler, Parker. 1969. "Underground Film: A Critical History"
Great read if you're interested in the progression of experimental film, ranging from early expressionism and surrealism (Caligari and L' Age d'Or) to 1960s filmmakers like Stan Brakhage and Kenneth Anger.

Last book I read was "The Second Plane". It has a contains a story called "The Last Days of Muhammad Atta", which is a fictional account of his last moments on earth right up till the moment he flew the plane into the first tower.

Wasn't too interesting. I've also been flipping through "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain".
