Note to self: I should post reviews of these books sometime. Or the ones I ended up reading all the way through, at least.

As I was saying at the writing group meeting last night, I recently discovered Project Gutenberg, where they archive many pieces of literature that have passed into the public domain. They have ebooks (mostly in plain-text format) and also various audiobooks, both computer-generated and human-read. Definitely worth a look for you readers out there.

Current reading list:
- The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, H.P. Lovecraft (yes, still. Along with lots of other stuff by Lovecraft. I still owe someone an e-mail about this.)
- Tales of Wonder, Lord Dunsany
- The Sorrows of Young Werther, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Regarding that last book...

Most of you probably already know how this story ends, but I'll cut this entry anyway. And it might be triggering for some people, so fair warning. )

I'll comment on the other stories later. I have things to work on tonight first, though.

This is why I should avoid passing used bookstores. (But they're all so close by!)

I buy them because I am *weak.* )
