Yes, I like shamelessly stealing good ideas.

Book list:

• Basically, since [ profile] leeteuk had the brilliant idea of making a list of books that she read, I thought I'd do the same since I have no originality. And I figured it would work rather well to help motivate myself to read books and not subsequently let my brain rot by spending more time lurking on the internet.

IKR. At first it was just kind of boring and confusing, but once things started fitting together, it got really good XD

What's wrong with reading? D:

i'd recommend Murakami. he's a genius.

also My Sister, My Love by Joyce Carol Oats is wonderfully tragic and deserves a read.

Yes, I particularly enjoyed it. And I'm assuming the second book is also by the same author? I really must check re of his work.
