|So, B&L, how do you feel about... (1) | Posted on June 29, 2012, 2:24 p.m.|
|...Speaker for the Dead?|
Honestly, Xenocide and Children of the Mind suck, but Speaker is actually a good read.
How do you guys feel?
|Anyone read The Mysterious Stranger by Mark Twain? *Spoilers* (6) | Posted on June 20, 2012, 7:17 p.m.|
|Well, the ending may seem out of place because Twain never actually finished it. There are three versions of his own and the commonly published one is a frankenstein of them by his editor. |
P.S.: Paradise Lost is spectacular.

|I'm not very far so please don't spoil but I have a question about endnote 24. |
Certain titles of films don't seem properly formatted and some have superscript 1s on certain words. I want to know if this is normal or if it's a product defect.
|How does B&L feel about Barnes and Noble Classics? (1) | Posted on Dec. 12, 2011, 6:28 p.m.|
|I think they are some quality prints, the footnotes really help me get through some books.|

The Blithedale Romance
The Tale of Genji
In Search of Lost Time
These books each changed my life after I read them. Well, that sounds dramatic. They changed my perceptions, or maybe refined is a better word than changed. They also happen to contain some of the greatest writing I've ever encountered.
I read Moby-Dick recently, could you elaborate on how it refined your perceptions?

|I've never read any Dickens, and with my reading list now it may take awhile, but I'll eventually get to it. XD|

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, because I felt like I identified with Ender, though I'm beginning to like the book less now.
Paradise Lost by John Milton, just finished it and found it absolutely gripping.
I don't consider myself very well read, though, so I might be missing out on a lot.
