Are "gravity's rainbow" and "infinite jest" actually worth reading or are they just a board meme?
What's the appeal of pic related?
Only a few of us can actually read the book, and even fewer people understand what the fuck Joyce was talking about.
All I know is some guy posted here a few months ago that on Thanksgiving Day he went to a used book store and read aloud from Finnegans Wake and cried at its beauty right there in the store. I called him a weirdo or something and asked him why he wasn't with his family and friends on that day and he gave me a lecture about not judging people or something.
Wait a second, why was the store open on Thanksgiving? Wouldn't it be closed? God damn, man, I've been trolled. Trolled again. I hate online.
I remember that thread. Why did you feel the need to do that though? You came into a thread just to insult what was for him clearly a very meaningful existence and tell him that he should have spent the day doing something that you think is good. Tbqh his anger at you was warranted and from the way you've written this comment it is apparent that you are still an asshole.

What's the literary equivalent of Aqua Teen Hunger Force?
Maybe if instead your picture had a talking bana...oops, don't want to spoil the best part of the book. Let's just say a certain "tommy p" (real name? who knows? noones ever seen him--seriously. but he has done...get this...a simpsons cameo!) has you covered. It's a smart book that makes you laugh at the same time, it remins me a lot of that picture of einstein with his tongue sticking out
Pic related is the only commercially successful children's/YA literature acceptable to read as an adult. Prove me wrong.
Why would you read books that aren't considered classics?
Serious question. It's literally a waste of time reading non-canon works.

How much Wittgenstein should I have read before reading Wittgenstein's Mistress?
read the entire Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy page on him.

Gogol is pretty comfy, at least what i read
people are gonna say LotR is comfy but i think it drags a lot, i read it once in my life and i think that's enough
if you are under 16, or a mom, Harry Potter
Is this guy a two book wonder? Is there anything else worth reading from him that isn't 2666 or Savage Detectives?
These are the most influential writers of the 20th Century.
