It is almost exam time for me, which means that my mind is starved for irrationality. The burden of memorizing these thousands of rules (with their exceptions and the exceptions' exceptions) is constantly trying to fuse my cerebelum.
What I need is a solid dose of irrationality. I need a novel- a good one. I am rereading The Lord of the Flies for starters, but I'll be done with it in no time. Does anyone have a good book suggestion?
Incidentally, I think that reading a novel is a great way to prepare for tests. By the end of the semester, I know that I have heard and learned everything I need to know for these exams I have upcoming. Instead of spending all my time relearning, I think it is wise to spend a good bit of time learning how to remember. Nothing gets my mind working in peak condition like reading a good novel. Good writers know how to evoke powerful memories from all over the brain.
