So I’m finally reading The Kite Runner (which I’ve owned for 2 years and only just now got around to reading), and I’ve got to say that this narrator is a pretty shitty person. I feel bad for all the characters except him, and I don’t know if that’s how I’m supposed to feel about him or not, but he’s a total bitch, and fairly unlikeable. I’m just trying to finish the book as quickly as possible so I can move onto a new book with characters who don’t suck so much. :/
How many have you read? How many do you want to read?
Me = All. I want to read them ALL.

- When not all the books in the series are the same height.
- When books change covers with editions so they don’t all match unless you buy the series in one go.
- When some books are hardcover and some are softcover and it doesn’t match but you can’t find another copy.
- When some covers are different in certain countries so you don’t get the main one which also happens to look better than all the other varieties.
- Basically just books.
- God damn them.
Moby Dick (1851) by Herman Melville
Publisher: Vintage Books
When Ishmael sets sail on the whale-ship Pequod one cold Christmas Day, he has no idea of the horrors awaiting him out on the vast and merciless ocean. The ship’s strange captain, Ahab, is obsessed with hunting down the famous white whale, Moby Dick, and will stop at nothing on his quest to annihilate his nemesis.
Inspired by Worthington Libraries: Blind Date with a Book!
We started with ~40 books. Two hours later, all but four had found homes with library patrons (sorry, Flush, Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Persepolis, and The Things They Carried, they don’t know what they’re missing).
Now, to send forth a new fleet of exciting books into student arms. Whew!
