    I finished 20000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. Such a great book. It was hard to put it down, but since I am working I need my sleep.

    Well. Not reading as much as listening to really. I just got "Mythos" by Stephen fry, as an audiobook narrated by himself. A retelling of the Greek myths, with commentary. I'm a few chapters in. Liking it so far. It's clever and funny.
    You remind me of the babe

    What power?
    The Power of voodoo
    Who do?
    You do!
    Do what?
    Remind me of the babe!

    Hey, I bought this when I was in Ireland two months ago! I haven't read it yet - but it's on my next to read list.

    Just finished: Call Me by Your Name - Andre Aciman
    Listening to: The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes, narrated by Stephen Fry
    Reading now: How To Be Human - Paula Cocozza

    Up next: ...probably Mythos, lol.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    I'm reading Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard. So far I really like it. It's very interesting.

    I'm reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. Best impulse buy I've made recently.

    Great minds think alike that's the one I'm on now. Although I've done a rare thing a bought the audio book, he narrates it himself. I usually prefer reading myself, but I like listening to him.

    What do you think of it? I'm only a few chapters in, but so far I find his attempts at being funny to be obnoxious. Normally, I like Stephen Fry, but I find it slightly off-putting for the Greek myths.

    I'll keep reading, but I'm finding it a little less immersive and a little lighter than I was hoping for.
