What are you guys all reading at the moment? Right now I am reading The Castle of Otranto, which I have almost finished. I think after I knock that out I am going to look to read one of the books in my large stack of books I have purchased and am yet to read.

I've finishes Dostoyevsky's White Nights and Bobek and will now start with Oscar Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray (because I feel exorbitantly gay)

Fun fun! I love Picture of Dorian Gray, I have read it like 3 times in my life! As for White Nights, I have not heard of it. Does it happen to be something Dostoyevsky wrote sometime in his early writing career kind of like The Double?

As far as I know, it's an early work, yeah. It's a short story.

So just to bring some names into the discussion that I am aware of, Genji Monogatari and Dom Casmurro comes to mind.

I've got the Penguin Classics edition of Genji Monogatari in paperback, but I haven't gotten far in reading it because I'm afraid to damage the book. The pages are so thin and the book feels too big to be sturdy. So I bought the Kindle edition for $5 a couple of days ago.

There's actually a website dedicated to the Tale of Genji; it also highlights the places mentioned in the novel.

Currently my favorite books series is Vampire Hunter D.

Started reading since May and still have a lot to go through!

My favorite aspect of it are the beautiful ilustrations by the talented Yoshitaka Amana.
And it has one of the most uniqie settings for a post apocalyptic story.

The author went all the to mix up scifi, western and gothic horror.

I do warn it can get kinda dark.
But every book give you a different setting, therr are even momements where D allies with vampires and some of them even have sympathetic motives?

Also there a lot of themes of human preserverance and hope.

If you are more familiar with the movies i do recomenr checking this one out.
