the image (pic related) leads to https://steamcommunity.com/id/Penwin/ to https://bandcamp.com/louisherriot, so whoever wrote it is probably vaporwave loving trash.
Is browsing /lit/ equal to majoring in literature?
Is anyone willing to read a draft I have for a Star Wars novel and judge it?

Hi, just saw this in a thrift store, is this pleb friendly? Just got into reading and want to read something by borges, but i listened that this is considered a "hard" or "dense" book, what do you guys think?
It's not hard, it's very fun to read, but it is dense for fiction.
It's cool to try your hand at it and its ok to miss stuff because you are, at the very least, being introduced to it which is always a neccessary struggle.
You will always miss stuff with Borges, nigga is deep as fuck. The hardest story is I guess Tlön, Uqbar... but even if you don't get some of the references to philosophers and shit you will enjoy it.
ITT we share our recent hauls and other anons rate, comment, tell us what to read first, etc
Pic related is mine, these are mostly my dad's books, borrowed 'em. Makes me sad to think I lived in the same house with them for twenty years and never checked them out. The one you can't make out in pic is "The Possessed" by Dostoevsky
I decided to start reading for pleasure this week. I finished Godforsaken Idaho by Shawn Vestal. really liked it
I tried to enjoy Loteria by Mario Alberto Zambrano, and And Now You Can Go by Vendela Vida, but they were both incredibly boring.
I also checked out American Psycho and Filth.
Just started Pocket Kings and it's pretty funny.
bought all these in the last month.
The bottom right is poetry from an Instagram chick. There's some good stuff there, but mostly pop poetry.
Give me a book of some notoriety that isn't particularly dense or a "heavy" read.
I don't think the majority of /lit/ posters who criticize Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged have actually read it.
If a man bends over your plate, pulls down his pants, starts grunting and says dinner is almost ready, you are well within your right to go nah I'm not eating that even when he responds how do you know, you haven't tasted it yet.
Hey, /lit/, I'm wondering if any of you follow any ethical positions in daily life? Whether you do or do not, are there any books that inspired you to live like that?
I'm a bit confused : is Žižek a meme or is he actually worth reading ? Where should I start ?
What is the literary equivalent of Married with Children?
Let's make a page of Shakespeare /lit/ here, I'll start
About to start reading pic related /lit/.
What should I expect?
just started this
well i've seen the movie, which i really liked, but i've always wanted to read the book, so far it's good, only on page 40 or so, not the best writing not the worst. more in it for the story.
