Hello /lit/, I'm starting my own library in my house, but I'm not sure I have enough books to fill the bookshelf I bought. I really like Asian literature (Mostly China and Japan.) and I already bought The Tale of Genji, Monkey/The Journey to the West, Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, and I am a Cat. I also have Don Quixote, and Paradise Lost. What else should I get to fill up my collection?

I know, at least one of you is gonna get butthurt over this,
But I just recently read Looking For Alaska, by John Green.
For all of it's flaws. I thought it was a beautiful book, well written, hilarious and serious. It was hard to put down.
What did /lit/ think of it?

Hey /lit/, was wondering if any of you felt like helping me with something that I have wondered for a long time.
I'm starting to make a little story for my fantasy character, and I'm stuck on choosing a name. I would like it to have meaning behind it, and have no idea how to do that.
For example, Kratos 'supposedly' means power in ancient greek. Any translator I try, I don't get anything like that. (and I obviously do not know anyone who speaks ancient greek to confirm).
I've tried translating 'strong' 'leader' etc in different languages and just messing around with the word to get a cool looking name, but, nothing seems to work.
If theres some special, secret 'root words for names' thing someone could show me, or something, so I could try to get just the right name for each personality of each character, that would be great.

Hey /lit/ when was the last time you left a book unfinished?
Mine was 15 years ago. I can´t help it but when I start something, I have to finish it no matter how shitty it is. It's like I'm afraid of losing something, and I'm afraid of judging a book for it's first half, or 100 pages, or it's cover.
Anyone feeling the same here? Any advice? I feel like I'm wasting time. It doesn't happen very often. I enjoy most things I read, but when it happens it's a royal pain in the ass.
