Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

My current reading attention is split between David McCullough's biography on John Adams and one of Harry Turtledove's alternate-history novels, The Two Georges.

Nearly a month and a half and I'm barely 100 pages away from finishing Imajica. I know I said I was going to read Ulysses next...but I had a gut feeling that when I heard the themes and concept of the former, I would fall in love with it.

For once, my gut was right.

Well, I finally finished Imajica about half a month ago and I can safely say that this is easily the best fantasy book I've read...but, I still have plenty more to go.

Following that, I read through Brave New World (With classic dystopias on my list ('Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' in particular)) and, perhaps not surprisingly, it's a great book that's still relevant in many different ways. Huxley is an author who I need to read more of.

And currently, I'm taking a leap of faith and attempting to read David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest. When first hearing about it, it sounded like it was nearly made for me. I can't form an opinion on it since I'm only on page 60 out of 1,076, so it's going to take me a while or more to form it fully.
