I've tried to read A Prayer For Own Meaney three times now and can't get past the first few chapters. It's good, but I just can't seem to stick with it. It's like I know how tragic it's gonna be, and I just bail before it hits.
Someone got me the "Slash" autobiography. I'm not a huge fan but I can't put it down. We traveled similar Southern California "scenes" so I'm halfway expecting to read, "When I hung out with jxbx..." ...hehe...right!!
This year, I began to read All of Haruki Murakami's work. Fantastic Writer!
I starting with 1Q84 In January of this year. I so far I finished Dance Dance Dance, Norwegian Wood, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Kafka on the Shore and A Wild Sheep chase.
I just started his latest book (2013) Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki.
But im also reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace and A Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.
both of which i find myself going to more than CTT.
I read "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" and it was outstanding. Thanks for reminding me again of his work.
After reading this exchange, I decided to check 1Q84, I finished the first of the three books..I am definitely enjoying the writing. Thanks for sharing! I passed by a used bookstore yesterday and found a few jems: Zen Master Dogen by Yokoi Imperial Japan: The Art of the Meiji Era Talk to a Stone by Shinagawa Enso: Zen Circles of Enlightenment
This month I re-read 'VALIS' (a favourite Philip K Dick book of mine, though it was a little more difficult than I remembered) and a short book about a guy who buys his own future grave and retires into an old people's home at 30-something, called 'Happy Days'.
Right now I'm reading 'The Green Mile'. Obviously I know the story from the movie, but I enjoy 'Misery' so much, last month, that I wanted to pick up another Stephen King book. Racing through it so far.
I've also bought a first-edition copy of 'Cujo' (meaning it was published before I was born!) which I'm waiting to read..

Almost finished 'The Green Mile' (probably will today), really enjoyed it.
I mentioned elsewhere that I've been binge-watching 'Bates Motel', so I picked up the original 'Psycho' novel. I'm up to the point in the show where they do that story so I thought I might read it first (I didn't even realise 'Psycho' was an adaptation, actually!) before I gte onto that copy of 'Cujo' that I ordered.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

Dreadlocks Co.: Anyone thought of becoming a dreadloctician fulltime? I found some awesome courses on getting certified at http://divinedreadlocks.com/

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
