I’m going to keep reviewing books I’ve read. I’ve read more this month than I did in the past year because I bought a nook and get enamored with technology pretty easily.

All right, I started off with Dune. I’d give it about 4/5 stars. It’s a classic, but I honestly don’t like Paul. The world is given to him on a silver platter, and he always has the right answer. Nothing compelling going on about him, and he’s the main fucking character. The ending was also kind of bizarre.

Next were the classics Pride and Prejudice and Treasure Island, the latter of which I hadn’t ever read. Barnes and Nobles were offering free classics, and I’m a sucker for free things. I personally love P&P, so 4/5, but TI was not my cup of tea 2.5/5.

Next off I reread the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I’d give it 4/5 stars again. The science is terribly outdated, but it’s still a lot of fun to read. But maybe I’m drawn to British humor :P

I’m stuck deciding on whether I want to keep reading Neal Stephenson’s Diamond Age. It’s way too jumpy for me. While I decide, I’m rereading Alice in Wonderland ‘cause it’s easy and I actually don’t hate it as much as I used to.
