Nabokov "Speak, Memory"
By now I have read it for about fifty pages, left off at the spot where he grew past 18 years of age. I don't recommend it so far, but I want to read further. Sometimes he seems to get cocky about his writer fame. I don't understand why, probably because I haven't read anything else he wrote although I've heard praise for his novels.
Besides that I currently read a book that teaches how to use the Linux command line. The author (namely William Shotts) writes small bland silly jokes into the text at times, but the book has served me well so far.
What do you think, any good? It took me three months to read, but it feels worth it, I am not sure why, maybe because it made me me.
