    Oh.

    Yes, books are expensive. Very expensive. It's kind of sad. :(

    It's kind of good in a way because I'm an aspiring writer myself, so I'm glad there's a real industry there, but 30 dollars for a new book is a little fucking stupid in my opinion, and many OLD books aren't even on 7-8 dollar paperback, you have to buy a 15-dollar trade paperback.

    Right now I am reading a book called 'Meg' about a 60 foot long Megalodon shark that eats people. This is litertainment at its best.

    It also has a picture of a shark eating a Trex on the cover.

    1.) okay, buy the curse of lono illustrated edition (it is huge and beautiful and only 30 dollars).
    2.) find the whalestoe letters so you can continue the danielewski experience after house of leaves
    3.) i'm on my annual borges fix right now, so pick up the collected fictions if you're into that fantastic mind bending postmodern shit

    Apparently in the fourth book they find some thing that eats the sharks. I can't figure out what prehistoric animal they're referencing, but as long as it eats people I don't care.
