    Confederacy of Dunces

    It’s my first time reading it and it’s as brilliant as they said.

    The Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories and Other Stories by Gene Wolfe. That's not a typo, either.

    It's terrific so far, though I like some of the stories better than others.

    Just finished "Catch and Kill" by Ronan Farrow yesterday. It was awesome. It's about his two-year long investigation into the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

    Might be the best book I have ever read and I read a lot. I can’t recommend it enough. Amazing book.

    I read it in 2-3 days I think. I couldn’t put it down. Everyone I have told to read it have said the same thing. I have read a lot of books about Northern Ireland and this is the best book by far. It’s a heartbreaking book. What’s amazing is the author basically solves one of the greatest mysteries of the entire period know as “The Troubles”.

    Finished Dune by Frank Herbert last week, now reading 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. I never read the Jules Verne book as a kid so I thought I'd give it a go.

    Hard to say, if they stuck to the book and with the right director it would be a great movie. I would think it’s being looked at into being made into a movie since the book has really achieved huge success and widespread acclaim.
