The Friday Five

1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?

I don't read much, but when I do, I mostly read magazines -- EGM, Guitar World, Entertainment Weekly, etc. But I also like novels.

2. What is your favorite novel?

Off the top of my head -- The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.

3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)

Gah... I know very few poems, but I really like this one by Robert Frost:

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Don't ask me why I like this poem, 'cause I honestly don't know.

4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?

The Divine Comedy by Dante. I never got to finish it.

5. What are you currently reading?

Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. It's a graphic novel, so if you don't consider that reading, fine. I'll be starting Fight Club next.
