In a post apocalyptic wasteland you have the last copy of [x]. It comes about that you're given the choice of either you or that book perishing. Which book is so important for humanity you'd sacrifice yourself for it.

/lit/, I'll spend a few days in Manhattan next year and would like to read a few books that are set in NYC or say something about the city or its history. Just now I read EB White's Here is New York and have just picked up pic related. I've also got Don DeLillo's Underworld and Ralph Ellison's The Invisible Man lined up. Any other recommendations?

Can anyone recommend me some good horror? Just read Stephen King's Pet Cemetery. It was good, but a little too light for me. Something darker and more philosophical would be nice

Do you ever get nostalgic about books?

There's gonna be a presentation of this Vladimir Sorokin's new book tonight in Hungary. I'm going. I like his works very much, even though I can't really explain why, they are so weird, disturbing and frightening but very lyrical at the same time. I don't know, but there's definately something about them. So what does /lit/ or Russiabros - if any of you are here - think about this writer? Do you like him or not? Why? Do you think the picture of Russia he describes in his books is accurate? Discuss.

He was outside, hailing a cab. He was in a cab, reading out an address. If he really focused, reading was no problem at all. He was standing under a streetlight, listening to an engine roar until it faded away. Now the night was silent, if only for the ringing in his ears. He walked to the middle of the road where the streetlights came together into a spotlight. Usually he wouldn’t have minded standing there, like right there in particular, so long as no one came around. Now he couldn’t care less. He lit a cigarette. He even wished that someone would come out and see him there shining in his prime and join him in the middle of the light. It might even be a beautiful girl; he was an experience not to be missed, oh no, no chance — ‘Paul?’ He spun around. There she was, ready to be taken away. ‘I thought I heard the cab like, ten minutes ago. Why are you just standing here — hey, is that a cigarette?’ The girl, in slippers, PJs and a down jacket, hurried over to Paul and huddled up to him and the burning smoking light between his fingers. He held it to her mouth. She took a quick drag and and shook her head. She had one more, and then she spoke. ‘So tell me. How are you?’ ‘I’m wonderful.’ A dog barked in the distance. It barked again. He offered her another drag. ‘Oh? That’s… that’s great. That’s great that you’re great.’ She waved the dart away and took a step in the direction from where she’d come. ‘Can we go inside? I’m freezing.’ He followed her to a fence and up a path to a door on a house. She opened it and went in. He swayed on the mat. Then she was back, staring at him. ‘Aren’t you gonna come in?’ He tried to take a drag himself, but it had burnt out. ‘You gotta get dressed.’ ‘What? Why?’ He just swayed. ‘Bring your pouch.’ ‘You’re fucked, aren’t you?’ She laughed. ‘Come in, you idiot.’ She took his hand and the filter from it and flicked it into an ashtray and guided him inside. They went up to her room and sat in her bed. She put on a movie on her laptop. Then the lights were off and he was staring into the darkness, listening to her sleep.

I always worked on my writing at night, after work. Problem is that I am usually tired in that period, and am now considering a great change: to wake up earlier and write before I go to work. I will have to be in bed sooner at night to compensate in sleep-hours, but I am confident that I will get used to this routine. >I want to ask for you guys: do you think is best to write in the mornings or in the afternoon-night? I read an article that says that mornings are better: https://blog.bufferapp.com/the-best-time-to-write-and-get-ideas My personal experience, however, have always has been one of night-work. I am a little scared and fearing that my life-change will not work and that I will need to stick with my routine of sitting down to write when I am already feeling drained. The best option would be if I didn’t have to work and could sleep until noon, than have a lunch and do some other things and finally, after 6PM, start to work. But since I can’t afford this schedule I just have to find solutions.

Hello /lit/, does anyone have the greentext story about the guy who pretended to be mute out of autism in his local starbuck, until he asked a staff girl out, causing everyone to freak out? It was posted a day ago in a nice thread about greentext as a medium. Also, since we're on /lit/, do you read?

I'm 20 years old and I've never read a book for pleasure. The only books I've ever read were the ones you were made to read in English class in school. I want to start reading, and this Thursday I plan on going to the library and starting with the books in the pic related Thoughts?

What is the literary equivalent of "True Detective"? I want fiction, so inb4 "The Conspiracy Against the Human Race." As literary as possible. That's if there even is an "equivalent." Anything besides Ligotti, Bierce, Chambers or Lovecraft?

>All I know is that I know nothing Err, Socrates, you're claiming to know that you know nothing. So how can you say that you know nothing? What a moron. Plato was a hack.
