permalink Hello there! It's summer where I live and since I don't have much to do I'm back to reading every book I get my hands on. The thing is, I've read every book in my bookcase and half of those in my mother's and I'm out of books to read now. So, um... any recommendations?

permalink Alright, you might want to try to read something from Stephen King (The Shining is good) or perhaps something from Haruki Murakami, I think Norwegian Wood is pretty long. If you're into more dystopian books, Metro 2034 is good. The author of that book is Dmitrij Gluchovskij.

I recently started (or attempted to start) reading H.P Lovecraft's "The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories".

permalink Otherwise you could also read the Divine Comedy , though it's not an easy read at all (it's more for intelligence than pleasure XD) (ah it's by Dante Alighieri)

permalink Whatever you do, do not read Murakami's 1Q84, there are better ways to waste your time... like watching paint dry.
