comeback of the year

January 10, 2012

I really want to be posting in here more often but I realised that I painted myself into a corner by only ever posting long, drawn-out pieces and elaborating upon them so that I would feel justified in bringing them up in the first place, but that sucks because then I can’t just post short little tidbits and get away with it. Or at least, I could, over at Tumblr, and I’d be doing that right now if someone hadn’t taken the username spiderfingers back in 2009.

Just wanted to say, publicly, that since starting Dave Eggers’ A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, I don’t really know what I’m gonna read next. This is weird because as long as I can remember I’ve had a working list about five deep of books I would read once I finished the one I was currently on.

Here is a list of books that have gone mysteriously and suspiciously missing from my shelves over the past three years:

  • The Picture of Dorian Gray
  • Norwegian Wood
  • A Player of Games
  • The last two books in the Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Series
  • Atomised
  • Love in the Time of Cholera
  • The Language Instinct

If you know of their whereabouts please contact me, there is a handsome cash reward in it for you.
