So what was he actually accused of?
Who cares? What do you benefit from the knowledge of what he was (or wasn't) accused of? How does it change the book? It's just a small tidbit of information that feeds the logic-hungry part of your brain.
>never have I ever, /lit/ edition
>if you've done the thing, you lose
Never have I ever read a book in the year that it was published.
Can you please recommend me some books about Learning how to learn/Improving one's memory?
Do you have any experience with this kind of literature? Is it worth reading?
No idea. Just reflect more on your life, decisions, days, discuss memories with friends, etc. It'll help. Also, read In Search of Lost Time. It will make you remember things you never thought you experienced. Also, write down your dreams.
What's /lit/s opinion on this great man?
He looked for answers in places that were already scavenged. Ken Kesey was in a better direction until idealism got the better of him. It seems that once you get a taste of the mystery, the mystery is more entertaining than the answer.
>been offered a job writing for a VERY niche and weird erotic online community
>the pay is good
>I could probably cut down my hours at work significantly
I can use a pseudonym of course so I guess it won't be a problem but I still feel weird
If literally anyone found out what I did I'd be considered a cretin
There's nothing illegal about it, it's just relatively unheard of
Would /lit/ take this offer given the chance?
no, i am uber paranoid and am always afraid of my writing style being recognized. for example i imagine myself publishing a masterpiece only to have my old 4chan comments found in the archive. for that reason on 4chan i try to post in a different style than i write, sometimes i make sentences more clunky than i need to and use words i don't use regularly like "uber". i still fear an algorithm could find my old posts via neural network and reverse engineering the subconscious elements of my sentence structure.
>love writing as a kid
>teachers wrote on reports that I was gifted
>write bits and pieces all through high school, poems mainly
>our high school exam is high-pressure rote learning, the English course killed any love I had for writing

Any advice for me, /lit/? My style is probably...

I'm a grill. Can you recommend a book on US history?
Could be historical fiction too. Just anything with the US and history.
So this is just a shitty 1984 right?
It's much better, tbqh
>philosopher describes in detail the thought that has been mortifying you since forever
One of the best feelings
>he bought into the life is good meme
>tfw since a kid my dream has always been to be a songwriter and have a band
>tfw after one month into /lit/ realize music is pedestrian-tier and im already 18 and havent wrote any 1000+ pages masterpiece
How do you shake that feeling of elitism? That there is a huge difference( though not necessarily that you are superior) between you and normies so that you can interact with them without an underlying feeling that the conversation is shallow and unworthy of existence?
>tfw there will never be a federal regulation that will limit the sale of any book to ten thousand copies, thus preventing books like 50 Shades of Grey from selling millions of copies while allowing other works from lesser-known writers to reach the hands of readers, which will make way for an improvement in the overall quality of literature
>60 pages in
>A pseudo-rape scene with a 13 year old girl
>The girl gets turned on and starts to like it
What is this pedo shit?
Let's assume for a moment I am going to kill myself. What is the last book I should read before I go?
