I have finished reading Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, by Tao Lin

Brilliant.

6 down, 144 (1 gross) to go. It took a day shy of three (3) weeks to finish my sixth (6th) book of 2009. All have been poetry books. A novel and a poetry book and a book of short stories I got from the library are due in two (2) days. I've already renewed them three (3) times (the limit). I have no hope of finishing the novel or short story book. I might be able to finish the poetry book, but it remains to be seen whether I will. I'll probably just forget about the short story book for now, which I had barely started anyway. I will probably wait a few days and check out the novel again. I will finish it soon one way or another. It's a very good book.

    Anyway, I thought the book was surprising and funny.

    It also adjusted my perception of what poetry can be.

    Is self-indulgent necessarily the same thing as selfish?

    I don't think I like books that only lead in, in, in.

    I think this book leads out, out, out--

    That's probably the best way I can describe it, even though I'm not sure what my description means.
