So now your life is just like inside that book. Is it the soothing comfort of Goodnight Moon? Is it the scary action of The Hunger Games?

Me, I am currently living in The Beaver Papers, so I am collecting obscure literary treasure-like scripts for the lost season of Leave it to Beaver. I think I just found one by Joseph Heller, Catch-22 Beaver.

And you?

Are you sipping tea in a Jane Austen comedy, or are you waiting for George R. R, Martin to kill you off?

@jespah,
<back later, as I'm reading quite a book, which will take some explaining>

I am hoping gustavratzenhofer will come along and describe his latest reading experience.

I am currently reading a nine volume history of philosophy. I sometimes imagine questioning the proclamations of various philosophers.

The last book I read had "See Jack run . Run, Jack, run ! See the ball ." and so on...then came Nip and Fluff, the dog and cat . They also ran .

I think it was a criticism of modern life and how we try to oversimplify technological complexity by ignoring it, by just using it without thinking, but there are poisonous consequences from using technology in a consumerist society . What happens to the plastic ball when it is no longer usuable ? Where are Nip and Fluff getting their food from and is it ecologically sustainable ? What is the morality of feeding pets when Jose doesnt have food, let alone a ball ?

Yet despite the underlying suggested tension in the book, there was a simple moral...dont overthink life .

Clancy's The Bear and the Dragon. They just set off the detcord around the door. What a mess! No body count to speak of, but what a mess.

@jespah,
Reading book two of the Void Trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton.

Most of the book is the chronicle of Edeard (human) as he uses his extraordinary psychic powers to police up the criminal gangs of the city Makkathran. It's oversimplifying the story as this steampunk universe takes place in the void (the center of our regular all-of-our-present-laws-of-physics-are-still-good galaxy) in flashback (?) to our distant future where the Void is threatening to expand an envelope the our own beloved galaxy and star systems (and kill hundreds and hundreds of billions if not trillions of sentient life filled planets in the process).

@jespah,
Mine -- my life -- at least currently the closest thing I could come up with is ....

One who flew over the cuckoo's nest.
