Night is nonfiction I believe. It's based on his actual experiences in concentration camps.
Kinda hard to compare something like that to To Kill A Mockingbird seems like two different concepts to me.

Yeah. They're not really comparable. But I do agree that Night is way more interesting. That probably has a lot to do with my interests, though.

That, and To Kill a Mockingbird is a boring concept.

Reading Marley & Me. Not because of the movie coming out. Not going to see it. Jennifer Aniston can diaf.
Who sleeps shall awake, greeting the shadows from the sun
Who sleeps shall awake, looking through the window of our lives
Waiting for the moment to arrive...
Show us the silence in the rise,
So that we may someday understand...

Reading a book I got for Christmas, don't even remember what it's called. Some sort of mystery/drama set in the tobacco industry. Pretty good so far.

A Lifetime of Secrets, the 4th collection of these.

It's quite an experience.
Anami and Anami are sitting around Anami says "GRR I AM ANGSTY LET'S EXPRESS ANGST" and so Anami says "ONE OF THE MODS ON DC IS A DICK I POSTED A PICTURE THAT WASN'T REALLY THAT INAPPROPRIATE AND THREE MODS SAW IT AND DID NOTHING THEN A FOURTH ONE SAW IT AND DELETED IT" and Anami says "OMG I HATE MODS >:("

Got that for a friend recently, he loved it.

1984 is one of the best books I've read. And yes, whilst To Kill A Mockingbird has an ostensibly boring concept, the writing itself makes up for it - and fits it - incredibly well. I agree that you can't compare TKAM and Night.

Still reading House of Leaves. Did I mention that it's huge?

The Superior Person's Second Book of Weird and Wondrous Words by Peter Bowler. So far, it's funnier than the third.

I started reading A Comfort of Cats by Doreen Tovey today, and I was rather upset to find out that she'd died recently.

"Sadly, Doreen Tovey died in 2008, aged nearly ninety. She had thousands of fans of all nationalities and was surrounded by good friends and of course her two cats, Rama and Tiah, who were with her almost to the end. Over fifty years since her first book was published, she has delighted genberations of owners of Siamese cats."
