Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It is long. And (so far at least) actually not all that depressing.

(I'm also on chapter 184 of the 250-chapter Wicked fic I mentioned earlier - which I calculated earlier is about 8 times longer than the actual book. Crazy.)

The Xenophobe's Guide to Russians by Vladimir Zhelvis.
Pretty good. I really want to go buy Hannibal Rising too, and I'd like to read Mein Kampf someday. What's it like?

Oh yeah also reading from the Giant-sized Andy Warhol every now and then. It's hard to read it in one go since it makes my back hurt because it's so bloody huge I:<

Ugh... I had to read that for my English class over spring break. I didn't like it and found it boring. However, I liked the movie.
