Could anyone recommend a good short novel (or novella)? I've been having a hard time concentrating on reading lately, so I think something on the short end (preferably under 200 pages) would be good for me. Maybe something along the lines of "After Dark" by Haruki Murakami? I like magical realism, but I'm open to any genre.

I'm turning 18 next month so I thought I might get reading some big boy books instead of the usual pleb fantasy shit I dig. I think I'm gonna start with that bloke Hemingway, but I'm accepting all manner of suggestions.

I was sat on a bench at a local park recently. It was a beautiful day. There were lots of children with their parents and other children playing and doing stuff that looked remarkably fun. I rolled a cigarette, and started to smoke, when a boy and his father walked past, but the boy was on one of those disgusting child leashes. Regardless of the leash, the boy was overjoyed, it seemed, with everything. He pulled his dad over to this fence, on the other side of which was a stream. He started talking about how nice the water looked and saying he wanted to get in. His dad was saying typical dad bullshit about how it was probably very cold and they needed to go snd buy sone cakes. The lad looked at the water fir another moment, and then turned to walk the way they were going, and did a kind if leap of excitement, exclaiming "Cakes!". He was a really adorable kid. They went on their way, and left me sat, smoking this cigarette. It nearly made me cry. I felt tgis wave of emotion, a combination of happiness and sadness. I suppose it was nostalgia. It was a sudden and poignant demonstration of how I am no longer a child (im 17). I feel like a boy, but I know theres very little boy left in me.

In the KJB, Matthew 5:5 reads: >Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. What is the general consensus of the meaning of meek in this case? Does this mean the submissive and gentle will remain on Earth while everyone with ambition and pride will go to Heaven? I thought pride and vanity were sins in the eyes of God, so why would they go to Heaven?
