I already own lotr + hobbit and the silmarilion in a boxed set. I liked them quiet a bit. Thanks for the suggestion though

Well what do you like?

If you want more comfy literature, you can´t go wrong with something like the adventures of winne the pooh or the chronicles of narnia. Some might say that they´re nothing but childrens books, but I like them regardless.

>> No.14287222

I think you need to branch out away from meme books that always get mentioned here. Not a jab at Kafka or Nabokov, I'm just saying there is more to literature than the same 100 books the teenagers here post inane threads about.

Try "The Book of Ebenezer Le Page" by G. B. Edwards.

This sounds interesting, thank you. I was thinking the diaries and letters of kafa and pale fire by nabakov. Do you have any suggestions for poetry? I read Leaves of grass recently and liked it quiet a bit.

Tell mommy to get you some Dylan Thomas. He's a fine writer. Poetry or prose.

You should try Harvard Square by Andre Aciman, and definitely Savage Detectives by Bolaño.

Get you a poetry book, or a compilation of short stories.
Short stories are great for quick and easy reads.

Shit pal. My birthday is the 20th, my sister's is the 28th.
I asked for some books, including:
Film Art by Bordwell and Thompson
The Tartar Steppe
Discourse on Voluntary Servitude
Under Western Eyes
The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge
Among some others. Not sure if any of those sound interesting to you. I almost asked for Kafka's Diaries too but I held off, maybe you would like that. For Nabokov? Pale Fire is nice.
