Hello everyone!
My Splitting Headache of Doom™ has lifted a bit, so here I am posting my Reading List for the moment...I'll make a list of books I have and want to read later too, these are only the ones I'm reading at the moment.

Books!Collapse )

I don't know if I'll be able to get to 104 books in one year, even if I am an avid and very quick reader...time is something I'm missing too much, lately! ::sobs::

Lots of love to everyone

104 Books in 2005

[Current Mood |tiredtired]

Hey all-

Just joined and am happy to have found a book community. Yay! I have a recommendation for you all:

Black Boy by Richard Wright (1908-1960). It's just...awesomely amazing and profound, yet so real. It was first published in 1945, I believe. Here's what it says on the back, since I'm terrible at summarizing books:

"Black Boy is a classic of American autobiography, a subtly crafted narrative of Richard Wright's journey from innocence to experience in the Jim Crow South. An enduring story of one young man's coming of age during a particular time and place. Black Boy remains a seminal text in our history about what it means to be a man, black, and Southern in America."

Here's a quote from Part 2, one of the many that resonated within me and inspires me to write in his styleCollapse )
