"Just finished going through some DC related backlogs, so right now I'm in the beginning of Wonder Boys and You Are Not A Gadget. No matter how many times I read Chabon I keep falling in love with his writing style."
"I think I've reach the point where I need three shelves now to contain all the books I own. I suppose it depends, since most people wouldn't want to invest their money on something they obviously wouldn't want to invest their time…"
"I'm not sure exactly when I got obsessed with reading in the first, but I think around the second grade I got really involved in the Junie B. Jones books. Although I remember having my mind sort of blown by Watership Down and His Dark…"
Literature, programming, and writing Nerdfighter. Not always in that order though.
My name's Brittany, but I rather you call me Kit. I write and read a lot, which I suppose defines a good chunk of the people you might see here on this forum! Anyways, I'm sixteen and in high school, writing for the school paper since my freshmen year and pushing along our Technology Student Association. But I've taken a pretty keen interests in more developed applied sciences lately, so if we were to start a conversation it might suddenly change from Batman to engineering projects. I try to write as much as I can, and I'm an avid participate in NaNoWriMo!
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Just for the record, I'm not especially opposed to television and movies, it's just, well, I never quite found a distinct need to submerse myself in the film culture. So here's just a list of my favorite books:
-The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, by Michael Chabon
-The Hitchhiker's Guide series, by Douglas Adams
-Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card
-The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz
-Grant Morrison's runs on Batman & Robin and Animal Man
-Pauli Dini's and Scott Synder's runs on Detective Comics
-The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon
I read a lot! Comic-wises I'm more subjective to DC, but I've been reading nonmainstream comics for years before that. Anyways, I really enjoy Chabon and Gaiman-esque prose, and I kind of hope to get my writing up to their level of skill on day!
