On to something a little more intellectual

So I finished my Harry Potter books. I read the Goblet of Fire in about a day, which is really good for a day I'm at work. This one was probably my favorite of all of them, although they seem to keep getting better as the continue. The only problem with them is the repeat stuff a lot, like the fact that harry is a Wizard and lives with his Muggle Aunt and Uncle who hate him. I somewhat understand this is used to refresh memories, and I guess in case people didn't read the first ones, but come on.

Anyways, I went to the library to return my 3 books, and came well prepared with a list of other stuff I'd like to read. I couldn't get Brave New World by Aldous Huxley or Catch-22 by Joseph Heller like I'd wanted to, but I did go the other 4 I was looking for:

Animal Farm by George Orwell
An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
The Magus by John Fowles

I figure since these will take me a bit longer, but we'll see. I think I'll start with Of Human Bondage because while I figure it's not about real bondage, a girl can dream, can't she?

Catch-22 and Animal Farm are both brilliant books. soooo good. you'll love them. I'm re-reading Catch-22 right now and am long overdue for re-reading Animal Farm. We should almost start a book club or something...
