Random: The Hormone of Darkness, Books to Read, Photo of the Day

Random Thought: Is it possible to cure insomnia by taking The Hormone of Darkness? I will find out soon.

***

I'm going back reading books. While reading Jostein Gaarder's Maya, I remembered everything I love about reading classical literature. There are a lot of books I've always wanted to read, but just couldn't find time to do so. So this year, I'll make sure to find time reading at least 1 book per month. Here's a partial list of the books I want to review:

1. Maya by Jostein Gaarder
2. Ulysses by James Joyce
3. The Brothers Karamazov by  Feodor Dostoevsky
4. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens 
5. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
6. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
7. The Godfather by Mario Puzo
8. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
9. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
10.A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
11. Noli Me Tangere in English by Jose Rizal (can you believe it?) :)

I am almost through with Maya. I'll give a brief review of the book later.

Suggestion of the day:
"Stop following and delete from your blog roll irritating bloggers who are not even worthy of your comments."

I've read The Brothers Karamazov when we were in college. It was a heavy read. Hahaha.

Haven't read Godfather yet, but someday I will. I also enjoyed Alice in Wonderland.
