>the ending to The Dead
What's good /lit/.
I'd like to get into reading novels and shit and thought it'd be a good idea to start by looking for some good black comedy books about police/detectives within populous cities.
Good one sitting reads?
i read Almost Transparent Blue yesterday morning
was a weird way to wake up (literally read it in bed) but very doable
Is there any literature that deals with nofap?
I'm sure there is some that touches the subject allegorically.
I see very little discussion about England's Jane on here. Emma is masterfully crafted. Austen is one of the greatest English novelists of all time, I would even put her above Dickens. This thread is for Austenites and those who want to know about Austen.
>Austen as a moral philosopher can also be discussed.
>got a cheap biography about Lovecraft
>his mom coddled him, was massively anxious about his well-being, and dressed him as a girl until he was 6, when he rebelled and she cried bitter tears as his golden locks were shaved
holy fuck, no wonder this guy was an autistic sperg. He stood no chance at being normal.
stories about authors thread?
Who the fuck wants to talk about this masterpiece of a book. Get in here.
Just finished it yesterday, thought the end was great. By far one of the best books I've read.
What do you want most out of the literature you read?
Is ham actually delicious, or have Jewish publishers published material promoting the food so much that we think it tastes good when it actually doesn't?
Hey guys, what are we going with for the new movement? Metamodernism? New Sincerity? Altermodernism? Post-postmodernism? Performatism? Pseudo-modernism?
For the love of all that is holy, can we please decide on a fucking term? Fuck.
Just so you know, post-modernism isn't as much a movement itself as an improvement over modernism. While its stance is clearly different it remains tied to the same topics.
>Intersubjectivity instead of universality
>Progression instead of utopy
>Defining morals on human actions instead of metaphysics (modernism had the same idea but stopped at rejecting christian morality and somehow ended up making its own metaphysical justification)
Post-modernims is just modernism...

what is the greatest horror novel ever written?
Dump every interesting book regarding the Nazi regime, Hitlers rise to power, and the Third Reich history..
I want to get one of these. I am looking at the 80 dollar version. I basically just want to get it to use pdf files on it, because I can get those for free. Is it worth it? I like that it has that battery life, my 3g ipad doesn't last a week on one charge, it only lasts like a day.
So I just read this. Anyone else here read this? Kinda shocking how a lot of the problems outlined are here today.
