Just finished rereading "I, Robot" to prepare for seeing the movie. Now I'm reading a book called "Seven For Oregon," written by our own Dandelion. I'm only 30 pages into it, but I'm loving it!! Dandelion, you have a way with words! I love all the descriptions of the wildlife, the land, the Native American attire, and more. It's very vivid and fascinating, as well as informative. I can't wait to read more. And for all of you regulars who have not yet read it, get with it!!

Currently in rotation are Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, E.E. Cummings Complete Works, The Oxbow Incident, and I just found my copy of Spoonriver Anthology under my nightstand yesterday. I am working on my poetical skills, hence the Cummings and Masters. Cummings was a genius.


There is no knowledge where there is no wisdom. There is no wisdom but in submission to the gods. Big words are always punished, and proud men in old age learn to be wise.

I haven't read it, yet. I own it. A friend of mine uses it as his primary text in an Introduction to Philosophy class.

Almost done with Little Women. Louisa May Alcott is a fantastic author.

Next, I'll try to find a new author hiding somewhere in the library.

Just about finished with The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things, by JT Leroy. Next up is Leroy's novel Sarah. After that either John Wyndham's Trouble with Lychen or something by French author Roger Peyrefitte. I really need to re-read Dandelion Wine.

Ok, I know I missed Bloomsday again this year, but I did start to read Ulysses and I intend to start it again and finish it this time. I even bought The New Bloomsday Book, a guide though Ulysses, just for comfort.

Well, Mr. Dark...that book changed my life. at first it may seem like a rookie philosophy book told through the eyes of a 14 year old girl...but OH what a wonderful book...if i ruled the world i would make it the law that everyone between 7 and 100 read it. I think you should too, believe me it's a complete waste of knowledge and life if you just let it sit around.

Well, Mr. Dark...That book changed my life...no BS. At first glance it may seem like a rookie philosophy novel told by a 14 year old Norweigan girl...but it really is amazing. Believe me it is a complete waste of knowledge and life to leave it sitting around. If i were the law, everyone would have to read it before age 7. You'll thank me later.

Only about 30 pages into Atlas Shrugged.
Just finished Animal Farm.
Your guess is as good as mine for what I'll read next.
