What does /lit/ think of Saramago?
yet another /pol/ tier writer from iberoamerica.
How does an unemployed 27 year old with no qualifications or experience in journalism get a job writing?
I'm willing to do it for free. It seems impossible to get a job at a dying newspaper when you're competing with graduates or students.
Is Tao Lin literally autistic?
I think he's just really anxious and thinks a lot.
A lot of writers speak slowly like he does.
He does do this weird thing sometimes though were he talks for a while then suddenly will be like "actually nevermind, forget that part" or something and seems like he feels bad.
How come no one here reads Jane Austin?
How do I read the bible? What do I learn from it?
Reading the 4 Gospels + The Gospel of Thomas + analysis and prayer + meditation for at least ten minutes will help a great deal.
Application of the teachings in the Bible is more important than choosing which church you should go to.
A person who can see is not blind
Blind submission is following others before you have found yourself, whether they be church leaders or preachers. God is within the heart of all being

I know it's one of your favorite books, /lit/, but I'm already struggling to keep focus. Is the entire book like that?
goddamn it guys, I purchased Dover Thrift Editions of Plato, Aristotle, and Aurelius before I was bathed in the elitism of /lit/
(don't worry, in true lit fashion, I haven't cracked the spines on any of them, although I have had them for several weeks)
I just caught on to actually caring what editions of books you buy, and luckily, I started caring at the right time, because I ordered $50 or so of reading material to read before I tackle Plato and Aristotle (The Iliad, The Odyssey, etc), and I have those in editions I like (I got the Fagles translations)
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Last Days Of Socrates collects four Plato dialogues (Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Phaedo) in a slim Penguin volume with end notes. I prefer smaller volumes, such as this, rather than the large and unwieldy omnibuses.
Looking for a very disturbing, paranoid, psychological book, which dives into some deep and very difficult subject matter. No flowery prose, please!
I'm thinking about reading this book, but I wanted to know what you guys think. I read the first three Narnia books, and I liked them a lot. I also really liked Mere Christianity. Would I like this book?
The entire Space Trilogy is great. It's early 1940s science fiction with a supernatural Christian twist. If you're a fan of C.S. Lewis, I think you'll like it.
I still love it even though I'm not a Christian anymore and tend to agree with Orwell's review of it. But as long as your fedora isn't on too tight, it's a very fun read. Check out "The Dark Tower" when you're done.
Hello /lit/ I have finally finished a short story that I have been working on. I shared it here and got some great feedback and some bad feedback.
I have revised and completed the story and I think you might enjoy it.
I would like any criticisms or compliments that you can offer.
I will review anything posted in this thread as well because I will be lurking. Thanks /lit/
Just finished reading this.
Any other books with a cyberpunk thematic worth a read?
Post the face/pose your going to use on the back of your novel?
Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul.
Just finished reading this masterpiece earlier today, such an amazing book. Has anyone read any other of Nabokov's novels and if so, do you suggest reading them?
And just in general, what did other readers think about this superb book?
-It was love at first sight, at last sight, at ever and ever sight
any books that manage to pull off a "jump scare" effect, or at least make you sit up straight and wonder what the fuck you just read?
