I'm going through a pretty rough time right now and I'm getting social anxiety and poor grades. I'm lacking motivation and my sleeping pattern is fucked.
I'm looking for any recommendations of a novel which has a character who is a hard worker and successful. I know it sounds pretty pathetic but I think it will help me a lot. I'm not looking for a non-fiction help book like "How to be successful" etc, just a book which has a character which gave you a role model for hard work. Cheers

When you read, if you subvocalize, do you hear the voice of the author (what you imagine it to be, or according to interviews you've seen or heard) or is it your own voice?
also, did anyone feel like Joyce was slowly starting you on the route to unlearning language and rebuilding you in his own image? i wasnt brave enough to attack finnegans wake after i felt so shell shocked by Ulysses, i worried that i wouldnt be able to relate to anything anymore if i became too immersed in it.
Oh wait, sorry, OP here, WHO'S MAD CUZ HARRY POTTER N' DARK TOWER BLACKIES FIZZ FIZZ

Detectives and private investigators, Who are your favorites?
Why is this board so pretentious? It's unbearable.
Is there a single good writer that wasn't at least moderately attractive in their youth?
Are there any good books about rejecting Industry, capitalism modernity, hedonism, or the sexual revolution?
I'm just really fed up with the world and want to live in a hut somewhere away from everything.
