New York state requires me to take at least three exams or more, depending on what area(s) I specialize in. The courses, for the most part, are bunk so just grin and bear it. There are so many English courses I wanted to take but my elective credits, 24 in all are sucked up by Education this and that.

one day in the life of ivan denesiovitch

i just finished rereading coupland's generation x.
before that, i was rereading salinger's franny and zooey and nine stories.
before that, i was reading a.w. tozer's knowledge of the holy
before that, i was reading rowling's harry potter and the half blood prince.


i also am continually reading kierkegaard, but not at the same time as i'm reading whatever else i'm reading. i read him before i go to sleep.


this sounds really name-droppy. but it's not. i'm just answering the question.

One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I some how have never read this, and I have been working on it for almost a hundred years. I love it, its beautiful, but it requires a lot of attention and I can't seem to carve that much of my brain away from the rest of the world.

I feel good knowing I've read a bunch of the titles here.

"Economics in One Lesson" by Hazlitt. *Excellent* book, especially if you're a neoclassicist. I'm a monetarist, so I feel uncomfortable reading certain passages...

Just finished "Antony and Cleopatra" by Shakespeare. It's an amazing tale of dissolution, death, and the love fuelling the downward spirals of Antony and Cleopatra. I'd love to illustrate it one day... one day... hmmm... maybe today?

Let me suggest "The Politics of Heroin" by McCoy. It is a dynamite read, recently updated to include Afghanistan after 1979. Good for all kinds of policy, politics, and economics geeks.

In Soviet Russia broken window fallacies you!. Actually Hazlitt is more properly defined as an Austrian schooler instead of a Neo-classical

I BREAK YOUR WINDOW IF YOU DON'T INCREASE MY AGGREGATE SUPPLY!!!

Which reminds me of an economist joke... these three economists are out hunting and they see a deer. First one's shot goes a yard to the right, second one's shot goes a yard to the left, third one says, "Great! We hit the deer twice!"
