Lolita, of all things. It's a book that's been on my radar for a while but never picked up. Now that I have, Nabokov has taken me for a trip. It's a full-blown stream of conscious fever dream, but like The Stranger and Crime and Punishment, I've found it eerily fascinating in how the narrator envelops you in their twisted logic and perception of reality.

Also working through On Anarchism (non-fiction is a bit slower for me), and I've started a re-read of For Whom the Bell Tolls.

I guess it’s a thing with Russians.
