Does this count as reading?

Recently "read" The Hobbit and Neuromancer. Enjoyed both of them greatly but I got to thinking: Reading has many benefits like improving ones vocabulary and other shit, so am I negating any of this by just listening to books instead of reading them?

This site has 90% of things I want, and the dedicated uploaders take requests and have filled about half of the requests I asked for.
You need to get an account and give them your email, but they don't ask for any personal shit like credit card numbers. Normal torrent sites don't have a fraction of the books on here.

My favorite book is still Horus Rising because it shows the truly depthless love Horus has for his father, and how uncorrupted that dream once was.

The saddest moment in the whole series I feel is when Horus asks Loken after Molech to re-join with him and the Sons of Horus in "the greatest endeavor mankind has ever made" and Loken thinks for a moment and says "I was... it was called the Great Crusade." That moment tore my heart out more than Angron on Deshlicka Ridge, Because to me when Loken utters those words the Emperors dreams and Great Crusade are truly finally dead, even the horrors of Istvann, Calth, the death of Ferrus Manus, none have the world ending finality of that line.

What are peoples thoughts on the Primarchs?

Most of the books are good but there's some pretty bad ones. Descent of Angels I think it was? Fucking god awful book. Any of the Death Guard ones I love cause I used to play 'em back in the day. Garro is a fucking boss.

The Outcast Dead was really good, really cool idea with the dudes imprisoned on Terra and having them from different legions. There was one, maybe it was Outcast Dead, that starts with a dude trying to sneak into the Imperial Palace, one of my favourite sections of any of the books.

I think some of the best ones are the those that deal with the start of the Heresy, the fall of the various Primarchs like Fulgrim and Mortarion. There was one short story I read that was especially good that was the first time Angron met his legion and how they get the name World Eaters.

The craziest ones though have to be Deliverance Lost and Legion. All the mad shit the Raven Guard and Corax go through is just insane; the Dropsite Massacre, the vaults on Terra and aftermath while Legion is just plain fucking nuts with the Cabal.

Anyway, fucking great series, I should get back into reading them.

So I've just finished reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, been meaning to for a while but surprisingly don't see it stocked anywhere so it was never an impulse buy. I was wondering if you would recommend any more drug related literature? Doesn't have to be something where they are the focus. I'm interested in something to follow Fear and Loathing up with, I often read books in thematic groups. The Doors of Perception perhaps?

Also, I'm also interested in some good contemporary drugs journalism.

I was not overly impressed with doors of perception. It was alright but a bit naff if you've ever taken any hallucinogens in my opinion.

Would highly recommend Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh. It's written entirely in dialect and really forces you into the characters lives.

Any thing written by Hunter S Thompson is great but can't think of any other pieces that are so drug related.

A Scanner Darkly is incredible, read it first, watch the film after if you're curious (it's a well done film but misses out far too much imo).

I'm usually not fond of repetitive verse but decided to give it a shot with this one...

A sailor came from over seas, and asked his lover this.

Do you resent my love, my love? Do you resent my kiss? Do you resent my love, my love? For long have you been missed.

I see the furrow of your brow; exasperated sighs. I see the way you look aloft when my ship passes by.

Does anger beget scorn of me, or something other hid, or ignorance to be pronounced of something that I did?

Do you resent my love, my love? Do you resent my kiss? Do you resent my love, my love? For long have you been missed.

My love, she said, forgive me please, my hate is void of spite. As I resent my love, my love, from bitterness of sight.

I see in every passing wake your love reflected true; the sea mirroring my own love, alas scorns me for you.

I actually really liked Insomnia, no idea why everyone hates it so much, but that's mostly because I like spooky hallucinations involving astral stuff.

The worst of his I've read would likely be misery or firestarter, cell and the under the dome were in my opinion bad enough to call complete trash, but I know of a number of people who enjoyed them. From a buick 8 wasn't great either I feel. I haven't read any of his recent stuff though.
