    I was left off?  Now that is disappointing :oD 

    Not nearly as bad as that ill-timed snooze, that's for sure.  

    Time to make the donuts ... take care all.

    Re: What are You Reading?

    I'm making one last stab at Moby Dick (which I failed to read when assigned about 40 years ago).

    I have on hold at the library Michael Moore's Here Comes Trouble and recently read Dick Cheney's memoir In My Time. Last month I read Page One: Inside the New York Times and the Future of Journalism, a compilation of essays written as a follow-up to a documentary film of the same title.

    I also finished Getting in the Game: Title IX and the Women's Sports Revolution, which read like a 287-page law review article.
     
    I re-read Catcher in the Rye and Of Mice and Men, which were among my teen-age daughter's reading assignments over the holiday break. I reluctantly informed my daughter that I was a Holden Caufield in my younger days.

    I have library holds on Stephen King's 11/22/63, Michael Lewis' Boomerang : Travels in the New Third World and Daniel Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow.

    [QUOTE]Reading The Singularity Is Near by Kurzweil.  Sophie's Choice was written by the late William Styron, not by Scott Turow.

    You're correct. Can't believe I mixed that up. I just post off the top of my head, and I read the book a while ago. But it still remains my all time favorite book no matter what I read after it, which was quite a bit. FWIW Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent was probably the reason. Another favorite, and excellent book. My apologies to William Styron and/or his family.

    Btw, from reading the board it's looks like Mikey's back as is the bumping of the threads. Shocker.

    I feel sorry for you that you are trying to slog through Melville's interminable tome. The man was in desperate need of a good editor. If you manage to get through it you may feel cheated out of the time in your life you spent reading it.

    Re: What are You Reading?

     Might I recommend "Lonesome Dove"? It started out as a screen play that couldn't get made into a movie, (John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda were lined up) then was turned into a novel, then turned into a TV mini-series. Classic hero led journey through the wilds of the old west, and a 1986 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction.
