    Here's a list of stuff I'm currently reading, either for classes or my own free time. I was rather curious as to what I actually was reading....

    You are not a Gadget by Jaron Lanier
    Internet & philosophy.

    Color and Human Response by Birren Faber

    The Art Instinct by Dennis Dutton

    Upgrade your life, by Gina Trapani

    What is your Dangerous Idea by John Brockman
    aka "What my Dangerous Idea Did on Summer Vacation". For philosophy class

    Complete Idiot's Guide to Philosophy

    ...so I can get a better idea of what I'm supposed to be learning from said class...

    Sherlock Holmes, by Arthur Conan Doyle

    Under the Dome
    by Stephen King

    The Academic Questions of Cicero

    Someone comes to town Someone leaves town by Cory Doctorow

    Frankenstein *-new Draft edition

    oh yeah. and there's a book about CSS that's not on my list, and two prepubs that I can't see from here.

    I seem to go through cycles where I withdraw from people and read. And read. And Read. It seems that, as a child, once I got the knack of reading, something about it just clicked with me, and I became an utterly voracious reader. It got me away from my small-town life, away from bullies, and was an activity that always provided me with pleasure. Like drawing, I remember having to work like hell to really 'get' it, but once I got it, it quickly became a somewhat soothing habit.
