I've tried harder to be more active in reading books, and give my brain some much-needed nourishment from the wasteland that is the internet. I've already read two books this year, which is two more than I read last year.

Yeah. I read nothing for so many years. Makes me quite sad thinking about it. Going for the book a week challenge this year, which is pretty easy with no TV or movies.

I read this earlier this year when I was sick and thought life couldn't get much worse so might as well read Moby Dick. Good luck. :wink:

I've read Moby Dick few years ago. It is basically half fiction, half in deep instructions for whale hunting.
I've read It was inspired by Poe's Gordon Pym and the two deal with the fear for the white colour. Funny that later Lovecraft did Mountains of Madness, so his book and Moby Dick share the same source of inspiration but couldnt be more different from each other.
