*stares at this list*

*stares at other list of books*

...that's a hell of a lot of books.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on December 29th, 2004 12:12 am (UTC)
Yeah - it's kind of like a 15-year plan . . .
Nightwalkerhalfawake on December 29th, 2004 12:15 am (UTC)
Indeed it is, but a lot of those books look interesting, so I added these entries to my memories. I like this entry better than the previous book entry though because it's all nice and organized. You should go back and organize the other one as well.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on December 29th, 2004 06:54 pm (UTC)
I will probably have to, just for my own use - I'll let you know when it's done.
Nightwalkerhalfawake on December 29th, 2004 10:40 pm (UTC)
Okay, thanks.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on December 30th, 2004 08:41 pm (UTC)
The update is done.
la femme stygiangunn on December 29th, 2004 01:15 am (UTC)
Damn, baby! How many books is both of these lists together?
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on December 29th, 2004 06:53 pm (UTC)
About 138.
la femme stygiangunn on December 29th, 2004 07:32 pm (UTC)
How fast do you read books? That's a lot of books.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on December 29th, 2004 11:27 pm (UTC)
Not as fast as I'd like, but some of them are pretty short. I'm thinking 15-year plan.
la femme stygiangunn on December 30th, 2004 01:34 am (UTC)
Each book in under 2 months. Yeah, I don't know. It's almost all nonfic.... I guess I take longer to read nonfic than fic.

I'll let you know if I ever get my hands on Huxley's Moksha...I was pretty interested in reading that myself. I'm a big Huxley fan based on Doors of Perception/Heaven and Hell; I used pieces from that work for my final paper in Indian Philosophy.
