Vladimir Nabokov Collection



Yesterday afternoon I decided to start reading a book I bought a couple of weeks ago titled, "Nabokov In America: On The Road To Lolita" biography by Robert Roper. I got out of our library my all the books I have by Nabokov and biographies. I made a video last night where I display my Nabokov Book Collection.

I have read "Lolita" by Nabokov. I have not read any of his other works. If I come across Nabokov's writings at a thrift store or a used books sale I buy them.

I want to read "Ada" a novel by Nabokov, but I so many books I want to read so I do not know if I will ever get around to reading this novel.

"He hath shewed thee, O man what is good, and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God" Micah 6:8

"This I say then, walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh" Galatians 5:16

"That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit" Romans 8:4

"Then had the churches rest throughout all Judea, and Galilee, and Samaria, and were edified: and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied" Acts 9:31

It is in the death flow 2:48 PM Thursday afternoon. It is a cold gray afternoon for us. At least there is no snow on the ground this afternoon. I hope it snows very little this year.

I have had thus far a normal day. Existence keeps decaying.

I got up this morning around 7:10 AM. I made oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After breakfast I suppose I wrote in my paper diary. I spent the morning mainly reading from a book titled, "Conversion In Luke-Acts: Divine Action, Human Cognition, and the People of God" by Joel B. Green.

I have been reading this afternoon a book I received in the mail today titled, "Stars Seen In Person: Selected Journals" poet John Wieners.

Carol is sleeping this afternoon, she has to be at work at 6 o'clock PM this evening. We do not celebrate Christ Mass.

I am never in a holy day spirit this time of year. "Rejoice in the Lord always, Again I will say, rejoice!" Phil 4:4.

Well not much else to report. Last night I mainly read late into the night from a book titled, "Nabokov In America: On The Road To Lolita" biography by Robert Roper. I made a video last night for my YouTube channel.

I suppose I will close to doze till night fall. There is no way out.
