^FUCK YOU.

Ahh, I need to read more. Almost every book I read becomes a favorite because books are just so good! Last books I've read are Nausea by Sarte, Creativity by Jonah Lehrer (which I particularly enjoyed) and I need to continue The Benefit and The Burden which is about tax reform in the US.

Has anybody read or heard of Towing Jehovah by James Morrow? That's one of my favorites. Here's a plot summary "Towing Jehovah (1994), in which the corpse of God (a two-mile long white male with a grey beard, as he has often been depicted) is discovered floating in the Atlantic Ocean. The captain of a supertanker is dispatched by the Vatican on a secret mission to tow the Divine Corpse to a tomb carved out of the Arctic ice. A group of atheist extremists plan on destroying the body, as although God is dead, his corpse proves that they were wrong and he existed at some point in time. An extended subplot deals with the evolution of a character's views on ethics and morality as he faces the idea of a post-theistic world."

So fantastic.

Just made an appointment today at the tattoo shop near my house to get started on my Great Gatsby sleeve. I am so excited for September 2nd. This book sparked my passion for literature, for writing, for reading, for teaching, and basically everything I want to do in my life. Considering as I start grad school to begin my teaching credential program in a few weeks, this is my reward to myself. If you couldn't tell, Gatsby is my favorite novel... but I love everything from Fitzgerald. This Side of Paradise is pretty high up there, as is Invisible Man, Nightwood, and the Harry Potter series.

Night by Elie Wiesel, he was a holocaust survivor and wrote about his experience. Really good book. I think he's written some other books, too.
