Reading List Update 2

Well, I finished Sex and Dating, so now I'm reading _Das Schloss_ (slow going) and _The Irregulars/Roald Dahl and the Wartime British Spy ring in America_. It's a great book. I don't normally have much interest in non-fiction pieces, but this is superbly written and quite interesting. I highly suggest it.

Also in the interim of updates I have read a multitude of short stories. If you get a chance to pick up a few short stories from Thomas Mann (e.g. "Der kleine Herr Friedemann," "Tod in Venedigt," etc.) or Franz Kafka ("Before the door of Justice," "Das Urteil," etc. I would highly suggest it. Or if poetry is what you're gunning for, I would suggest Rainer Maria Rilke or Bertolt Brecht.
