Here is a list of the books that I've been re/devouring for the past two months or so. If you see something that interests you, if you have a comment, or you'd like to suggest a book for me to check out, I'm always interested.

Of course, my friends who have made their objections known to this recently resurrected bookworm, cite my increasingly reclusive nature. granted, these objections are sustained. Also, due to the oxorbitant price of imported books in japan, my ever dwindling bank account lends further gravity to their point.

However, my favorite southerner Mark Twian once said that "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." I hold this maxim to be self-evident. After all, I could be spending all my money on weed, like all the folks i knew back in LA, and where would that get me, dude?
