I'm reading House of Leaves right now.
I've been reading the Carlos Castaneda Teachings of Don Juan series, but took a hiatus for House of Leaves.

House of Leaves is crazy, literally, anyone else heard of it/read it?

I read video game strategy guides, does that count?

Nah, seeing as the strategy guides themselves have no plot... or at least that's my call...

I finished a couple books by Carl Jung.

One on Synchronicity, the other on "The Undiscovered Self".

I kinda flip back and forth between fiction and nonfiction.

I read too much.
When a subject is highly controversial — and any question about sex is that — one cannot hope to tell the truth. One can only show how one came to hold whatever opinion one does hold. One can only give one's audience the chance of drawing their own conclusions as they observe the limitations, the prejudices, the idiosyncrasies of the speaker.

Heh. Well, let's face it, reading is time consuming. I like to make it worth my while.

Jung has clarified for me many important concepts, not the least of which is God. I wish he got more credit.

It's the holidays right now so I'm on just pleasure reading, so I'm reading John Irving's Last Night in Twisted River, and I'm getting started on a collection of the poems of Holderin. I study literature, so I'm a constant reader, typically 6ish books a week during normal periods, more if I'm doing research.

During breaks, or on holidays I tend to stick to one or two a week, I don't go out much Sad.

Ha, as to books with gay characters, I don't know if you've read the famous ones or not. James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room and Andrew Holleran's Dancer from the Dance are my favourites.
