I think thats true. Yet, its funny to me because I feel I'm not well read since I all read is fiction novels. I havent read much of what they call brilliant literature.. mostly Sci-fi, Mysteries, and Crime Fiction. I may not be the most intellectual reader but I doubt anyone else on ISH reads with the fervor that I do.

I ended up purchasing 10 books for 5 bucks. Two of those being books that I would have payed full price for. It was awesome to find them.. and now I have enough books for the next month..
Charity shops and second hand bookstores are the SHIT. Most of my books are second hand, whenever I'm with people who insist on shopping I wander off and rummage through discount bookshops/thrift stores searching for the gems

I must have over a hundred unread books which I snapped up under the "too good/too much of a bargain to NOT buy" rule

this book really has it all. it's funny, it's sad, it's creepy, and it does a great job of telling a story and sending a message. definitely recommend this.

So relate to the "delusional mental disorder that is marked by feelings of personal omnipotence and grandeur" that the main characters go through in the book?

Megalomania

I knew what it was, but I couldn't properly word a definition. And the key thing with megalomania is the word "delusional", which in psychiatry is a pathological condition.

Just thought it was weird to see someone say they relate to megalomania is all
