What does /lit/ think of Thug Notes?
Was never a fan of that part of the channel. When it started out I liked their film analyses, etc. But over time they've become more and more "clickbatey" which turned me off.
THE HIDDEN MEANING BEHIND....
What is the meaning of a heart of darkness?
Will this still print money?
Hey /lit/izens, I've recently been looking at ereaders and I realized that all of the ebooks I've seen have been more expensive than physical copies of said book.. Is this common? Am I just seeing some more expensive authors? Also is the a noticable difference between kindle and kobo prices? Inb4 piracy
Pretty much every kindle e-book is cheaper or significantly cheaper than its print counterpart. The whole selling point of ebooks is how cheap and portable they are compared to print books.
There is no inb4 piracy. If you buy digital books you are as stupid as people who buy individual songs on iTunes. Amazon sets prices high, and there was just a huge court case between Amazon and publishers and authors regarding this. Buy your kindle and pirate books, pretend it's a library of the Internet.
So this was awesome. But who were those 'men of the country' at the end?
And why were those other people trying to buy Blevins.
Epistolary Novels? Sometimes I find the author forgets they're writing it in the form of journal entries/letters due to the extravagent detail. IMO, this kinda takes away from it and the style just kind of seems like it's there for nevelty. Besides not giving the monster a voice, (Which can be done in other ways.) It's kind of useless, isn't it? Your thoughts?

Probably the wrong place to post this but it's 1am and I need some help with my writing skills for a valentines day letter. I'll comment it on this thread so you can choose if you want to see my bad writing or not.
-My boyfriend will be away on holiday with some of his friends for valentines day and i'm going to give this letter for his friend to place on his bed on the day.
-I haven't told him I love him yet, and I know he won't say it first because he's pretty shy.
-He loves soppy/romantic shit, but I think less is...

You're an ocean away right now and I probably already miss you but I hope you're having a good time and that somebody spoons you tonight.
Not even a minute ago, you told me that you’re glad that we've never had a phone call, in case you'd slip out an “I love you”. I let you know that i've had to restrain myself at moments, too. I’m unsure of your reasons of restraint but I’ve been certain of mine.
You then called me right after, and I imagined to answer and have you tell me you love me. With this meant that i’d...

That's too long and calling someone an ocean is rude
Take pic related for some inspiration
Hey /biz/ I'm looking for a BOOK with this same image but the person is a robot and muscular, With a 80s era style blue and pink thanks
These books kill me. They're hilarious. What your favorite ridiculous part?
The white mother and daughter cringe combo who know nothing about native american culture writing in Native American culture and also attempting to write black colloquialism in dialogue was hilarious to me. It read like a fan fiction like most YA novels.
Religion is the opiate of the masses, but in this case opiates are the religion of the masses. What does /lit/ think about 'Brave New World'? I personally see the theme of the government administering Soma in this book very similar to pharmaceutical companies pushing opiates and Benzodiazapinez so frequently today. Any thoughts?
>I personally see the theme of the government administering Soma in this book very similar to pharmaceutical companies pushing opiates and Benzodiazapinez so frequently today.
They're completely different
I really loved that book. I remember somewhere in the hospital scene there was a line like "All the girls and boys got balloons and lollipops on death day." It was shit like that that made the book so great- morals and values are much more relative than most people know.
...And to answer your question, yeah.
Does anyone have epubs of these books by zola? i have tried libgen/bookzz and nothing. i cant find them online. maybe someone would like to share them? thanks
Emile Zola - The Fortune of the Rougons
The Conquest of Plassans
The Sin of Father Mouret
Do you read two books at the same time. Is it ok with a fictional book an a non-fictional one?
typically ill have an easy-reading book alongside a harder book
examples of recent easy reads: ham on rye, breakfast of champions, a room of one's own
examples of recent hard reads: capital in the twenty-first century, the myth of sisyphus, the ambassadors
I just purchased pic-related.
How the fuck do I pronounce his name?
a certain author?
>Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels set for TV adaptation
>The writer’s popular books are being adapted by the producers behind Sky’s Gomorrah, with each of the four volumes becoming an eight-episode series
knausgaard is horrible. fuck off. neapolitan novels would make a good TV series. quite a bit of it is interior thoughts (particularly the scenes when things lose their forms) but the supporting characters are well fleshed out so it'd make a good ensemble cast.
