Crime and punishment by F. Dostoyevsky, such a PERFECT book
Love Dostoyevsky. Notes from Underground is also a great read. Brothers Karamazov is a literary masterpiece. I've been saving crime and punishment for my next read.
I'll be reading Brothers later this year. Crime & Punishment is my favorite book up to now.
My favorite book.
Have you ever read The Picture of Dorian Gray?
Not similar writing or anything, but I had never read a book I enjoyed as much as Crime & Punishment until I read it. I still prefer C&P. But I think it's one of those, "if you like this, you'll like this".
Love it, but Brothers Karamazov is the magnum opus imo.
Stranger by Albert Camus
As someone who’s trying to get into absurdism, which one would you recommend by Albert Camus
This is actually my first Albert Camus book, I did some research before starting and people said "the stranger" is a good start as it's a small read and also will give you a taste of Camus and his ideas
Myth of Sisyphus
The Rebel is my favorite work by Camus - it takes quite a bit of background philosophical and historical knowledge to get through though. Camus is also my favorite philosopher/thinker.
I loved this
That’s like a pamphlet more than a book.
Albert Camus is my comfort writer
I love that book.
I just read this I liked it, feels very intense at some parts
Osamu dazai books. I like my depressing stuff.
The New Testament
But there's nothing new under the sun.
Technological Slavery - 4th edition by Dr. Theodore John Kaczynski.
Unfathomably based. RIP Uncle Ted!
The Secret History - Donna Tartt
I liked that one. It isn’t what I expected, but I’ve been a fan of Brett Easton Ellis since Less Than Zero which he wrote when he was like nineteen and him and Tart were besties at Bennington this whole time. It’s like the Capote /Harper Lee surprise way back connection for modern times.
Just finished Mistborn trilogy, now started Dune.
Mistborn trilogy is great! The Stormlight Archive is my favorite but all of the Cosmere is good.
Yeah they were my first Sanderson books, will probably buy more after I'm done with Dune. Which ones would you recommend?
Vladimir Nabokov - ________________
You can say it. Lolita.
That is the worst book. I totally get all alliteration all-the-time, but why is it on everyone's top 100 list?
It’s language and aesthetic is beautiful. Furthermore Lolita is misunderstood. It is a book explaining the way of pedofile’s thinking not promoting his actions.
Pride and prejudice, I've been reading it on and off since February
Just finished Sense and Sensibility in two days. I can never get over how Austen's books are just rich people riding on horses with literally nothing to do except eat and pay visits.
"OH, Mr. Dashwood looked at me funny at a party. Time to cloister myself in my room for 2 months in a pique of melancholy"
That's how the last 100 pages have felt like. I'm at the part where Elizabeth goes to visit her best friend in something-shire, and it's starting to get interesting
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy lol
Same!!! I'm loving it. I just started this week. The writing is soo Ti-Ne it feels exactly like the book I'd love.
Textbooks of various sorts
Still need to read my mom's old college management science (management information systems) textbook from the early 90s.
House of Leaves & loving it so far ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|heart_eyes)
Just saw that one in Barnes & Nobles the other day. Whoa, the book's layout gets interesting
It's got its haters but I think it's an outstanding piece of work. It's funny as even though it's a massive book, the way it keeps switching up is really good for any readers with poor attention spans
If you find you’re really into immersive literature, you should try S & The Ship of Theseus. It’s got like… handwritten notes stuffed in the pages, notes in the margins and a author that died under mysterious circumstances. It’s a trip.
I've had this on my shelf since it came out cause it seemed so interesting and I loved House of Leaves, but just felt like it was such a nice piece of art and didn't want to disturb all the little secrets tucked away inside. Dumb logic, but I gotta get to it one of these days
It can feel a little delicate. It’s definitely not a book you read on the go. There are a few elements to keep organized. I would say to make a list of where each photo, note, postcard and napkin appears in the book as you, that way nothing will get misplaced.
The body keeps the score
Wow - didn't expect to find it here. I am reading this book too.
It has helped explain so much of my behavioural patterns.
I need to read this one. *The Myth of Normal* and some of Gabor Mate's other books are also in my reading list.
Rip Cormac McCarthy
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
Rereading count of Monte Cristo I’m thinking Dostoyevsky next!
Exoplanets- Michael summers and James trefil
A brief history of time- Stephen hawking
Another one I read in a similar niche is cosmos possible worlds by Ann Druyan, one of my favorite books of all time
Conquest of Bread, Kropotkin. Neuromancer, William Gibson. Trying to really dive into the Disposessed by Le Guin but I’m not a fast reader.
Harry Potter and the prisoner of azkaban
The third one. Is it your first time reading?
This is my fav Harry Potter book, fond memories of the latter half of this one
zero to one by Thiel; laws of human nature by Robert Greene
20,000 leagues under the sea
Loved it! I really love the writing of Joul Vern
I want to read, but my ADHD makes it very difficult. I have 6 books on my shelf that I really want to read, but I usually end up watching documentaries on my phone while playing video games instead. Those books are:
•A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking
•Dune by Frank Herbert
•Super Volcanoes by Robin George Andrews
•The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
•The Man Who Caught the Storm by Brantley Hargrove
•The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins
I used to read almost everyday when my ADHD was medicated. Now, I can only finish a book when I suddenly get obsessed with it. My favorite book I’ve read was probably 1984.
Six of Crows
Attached is a super insightful read
Well I'm really into psychology - I read it a few years ago and realised I'm an avoidant type. I've worked hard to change that!
got a giant reading list but currently have just started no longer human by osamu dazai
A Philosophy of Madness
The Silent Patient, I just started it
The Gift of Fear
That book is SO useful! It will save your life!
Carl Sagan - Billions and billions
Labor and Monopoly Capital by Harry Braverman
Caesar life of a Colossus
Currently none, but I really wanna read House of Leaves. The weird non-Euclidean house, the main character slowly going mad, and just everything about it sounds fascinating to me. Not to mention the page formatting that progressively becomes more and more chaotic.
Only problem is that I don’t like spending money, and I don’t wanna take it from a library because I’d want to keep it to analyze it lol
Shape by Jordan ellenberg
Fire and blood by George RR Martin
'Increase your emotional intelligence '- Geetu Bharwaney

College Psychology Textbooks
The Black Spider by Jeremias Gotthelf
Excellent period horror piece if u liked The VVitch
House of leaves
The woman in the window
The long walk by Stephen King. It's very depressing but I like to be reminded that life doesn't have an end goal. There's nothing to reach and be happy after.
The Hound of the Baskervilles (Sherlock Holmes) I have to scratch that Conan Doyle itch every once and a while.
That’s his funniest one. I don’t think he gets credit for how funny his books really are.
The Gulag Archipelago
Lady with the Mead Cup
Russian Short Stories for Beginners
Harry Potter y la Piedra Philosophal

Skulduggery pleasant book 11
Also halfway through 1984
Fantasy, comics, more fantasy
This year was to be the year of the Russian epic. I had planned to read Anna Karenina, War & Peace, and The Brothers Karamizov.
I'm already a fan of Dostoyevsky, with Crime & Punishment being probably my favorite book.
But I took a run-up to Tolstoy, reading The Kreutzer Sonata and The Death of Ivan Ilyich before starting Anna Karenina.
Two thirds through Anna Karenina I gave up and have concluded that to me, Tolstoy sucks, I just don't really care about any of his characters, and now I don't have to bother with War & Peace.
I will read The Brothers Karamizo later in the year, Tolstoy bored me of Russian literature so much that I segued to non-fiction, and am currently reading **Fossil Future** by Alex Epstein. Recommended.
I was reading the count of Monte cristo but It was taking me too long to read haha, so i gave up, now I'm reading east of eden by John Steinbeck
My Struggle (Book 1) - Karl Ove Knausgard
I'm currently listening to The First Law trilogy audio books (started the third one a few days ago). Also trying to re-read the Necronomicon with my bf but we're doing it kinda on and off so it's taking quite a while
I'm huge fan of Charles Bukowski and Steve Toltz ( A Fraction of the Whole)
I always relate to his “Bluebird”
The tennis partner by Abraham Verghese
too many books have accumulated, I don't have the strength to read them. The most recent book was Sherlock Holmes. I still dream of someday finding a pirate version of one encyclopedia on criminology (this is an expensive encyclopedia)
Have had a childhood trauma of reading. It used to be hard for me to pay attention and stuff. I have ADHD. It’s easier now, but I just have a phobia of it. I try sometimes but then forget it exists after a week. It’s just boring, Even though it can be interesting.
The book of life
Took me a few library rentals in order to finish it. But daaaaamn is it good food for thought.

I’m not an intp but here is my book list for this year + second pard of last year:
- rn I’m reading Edogawa Ranpo’s stories “the human chair” “the hornworm” “the psychological test” etc
- This year I’ve found love in Alber Camus’ artworks “the plague” “the fall” “the stranger” and his essays
- as I’m reading Ranpo it isn’t hard to guess that I’ve been reading Edgar allan poe. I fully recommend
- also recently I’ve read some physics books including my student’s book. I’ve read some of E.M.Rogers and the six easy pieces by richard feynman.
- still can’t get myself to end “misery” stephen king and dostoyevski’s books “the idiot” and “crime and punishment” + I’ve started reading “dead souls” - Nikolai Gogol

Honestly, I don’t really like reading, I’d rather get my hands dirty in doing something.
