Is there any essential nationalist literature?
Could a good philosophical work be composed entirely of memes?
Hello /lit/, I haven't read a single Stephen King book since I'm just getting into literature.
What S.K. books would you recommend to me?
Why are pages used as a measure of length and not word count?
Because then publishers couldn't use huge letters and massive letters to inflate the size of the book and make little Timmy/disappointingly not little Stacy think that they're reading *really intelligent doorstoppers*.
So /lit/, do you read multiple books at once?
I try not to, but if I'm reading a huge ass tome then I'll start reading other books inbetween. I think I read like 5 books while reading Brothers Karamazov.

To wed you on a day,
Your lord and master for to be,
And you his lady gay.
later in that ballad, about the same gay person:
With tear-drop glittering to a smile,
The gay maid on the garden-stile
Mimics the hunter's shout.
What are some good books that focus on the lives of Catholic saints? Works that focus on individual saints would be ideal, but something like a Bulfinch's Mythology for saints would be great too.
also interested. Saint stories were the comic books of the middle ages (stories about superheroes, everybody knows the main ones, some people get really into it, debates about canon, etc.)

In case you're serious (always a possibility) the one stop for your needs is gen.lib.rus.ec
If your book is not found there you are either using the search function incorrectly or it's pretty obscure material that you might as well buy.
Just finished this.
Thoughts on this book and its author?
Ballard is probably my favorite author. his themes of the intersection of media/technology with humanity, surgical prose, and subversive spirit strongly resonate with me. Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Reagan might be one of the greatest things i've ever read.
Ballard is great.
Love the Atrocity Exhibition, Drought and Hi-Rise
