Book Club

So...I got to thinking tonight...much like everything in my life, I am reading way too many books and not finishing any of them! Because of my ADD-like personality I have such a history of starting multiple things then not finishing...video games is another prime example...I have got to be playing about 3-4 games right now...haven't touched them in weeks because I've been so distracted with other things, such as dancing :-p Dancing is the one thing that I do not get distracted from :-) Looking at my silly list of books:

The Last Watch
The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious
Desire me Only
Bliss River
Social Intelligence
Between You and I

I realized that I am halfway through almost all of them...I will however, need to start over as I don't recall anything I've read! I suppose I'll finish "The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious" first...it was getting really good! I was starting to put together the individualization process between the five main archetypes of the Self, the Shadow, the Anima/Animus, the Ego, and the Persona.

Finishing that book of course means I will be highly distracted for at least a week as I try to fully understand each archetype and how to get to the "Self". :-) It should be a fantastic week...lol...I suppose this also means I'll be a little bit more deep in thought then I normally am, but I'm really looking forward to finishing it. I have a feeling I will be purchasing more Carl Jung books as that particular book is Volume 9, Part 1...I believe the next logical step will be to get "Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of the Self".

Through Archetypes, I am hoping to gain a better understanding to the human psyche so I will be able to better analyze those around me. I will definitely have some interesting (well interesting to me anyway) things to report on once I have completed the book.
