Reading material, anyone?

I'm unusually tired today, and I don't know why. I even went to bed at ten last night, but I still woke up at 9:40 this morning and was tired most of the day. Hmm. Maybe I need to retune my circadian system.

I didn't do that much today. I think the most productive thing I did today was print old LJ entries for Dr. Nbook, mostly because some of these thoughts made it to the Asylum before Dr. Nbook, and because I want Dr. Nbook to be more complete. Dr. Nbook hasn't been complete in a really long time, and I miss that.

However, my thoughts have been fairly empty for the past few days, and I miss that too. I've been reading quite a bit, but that hasn't been helping me much. This is where I need your help. Give me reading material. I know some of you already have, and I am getting through them, slowly but surely. I need inspiration. I need deep thoughts. I crave deep thoughts. I need things that will make me think, that will make my brain hurt but will make it jump in joy at the same time. Dr. Nbook is getting lonely, and so is my brain, yet somehow I'm not getting the job done myself.

Donne was right [although a bit sexist, but maybe that was the context of the time]: No man is an island. Neither am I. I'm getting there.

These are good. Any reading material is welcome in the Asylum.

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Hopefully, I spelled that right)

And, I meant to show you this site a long time ago.... http://phrontistery.info/index.html

(I'm not sure how to make it into a linkie. We know how inept I am at such things.)

My brain is fried so I can't think of anything else. Except Les Fleurs du Mal by Baudelaire. Oui, oui.

Wow, it did it on it's own.... Hahaha

Here's how to make the link to say something different. And yes, it'll normally do it by itself because LJ does that.

Thanks for the recommendations, by the way. [adds book to reading list; adds link to bookmarks] I'm going to love that site.

Wow, good choice! I Love dostoevsky. But Brothers Karamazov is better.

As said below, Brothers Karamazov
Lolita by Nabokov

Those are off the top of my head. Give me till Thurs night, and I'll get you a proper list, with ISBNs TOO! *I work thurs night*

Reading Suggestion
Have you ever read 'Sybil'? I just saw the movie recently and heard that the book is really good. Plus, it's based on a true story, which makes it more appealing. -Dee
