gabriel garcia marquez. nice choice, xavier.

i'm just starting his living to tell the tale.

as for kerouac, a patron recently donated a beautiful copy of some of the dharma, kerouac's notes and journals on buddhism, but i already own one.

it's a beautiful copy, brand new. i should send it to you.

yes you should send it,
jk..........actually if you have any knowledge of where I would be able to find rare books (first editions and the like..), I'd really appreciate it....I've always wondered how much a first edition Kerouac or Hemingway would cost

i'm not kidding. i'll send it.

people donate books all the time to the library where i work. since we don't put the donated items into the collection, we usually go through them, take what we want, and sell the rest at our annual book sale. and since i'm the only one of our staff with any taste in literature, i usually end up with the good stuff.

first editions are rare, but if there are any specific works you are looking for, let me know, and i'll keep an eye out for them.

"Fall on your knees" I couldn't get through this one either.

(I never used to not finish a book I started- but now my time is more precious I can't spend it on tedious books )

David Sedaris

I just started on and am already halfway through with Chuck Klosterman's Fargo Rock City. Hilarious, hilarious stuff.

And I just ordered a shitload of books from Amazon.com, with a trip to Borders planned for the weekend.

beegee, I am going to finally look for Cruddy. Promise.

Most of my reading right now revolves around my physics, chemistry and bio text books, along with some MCAT prep books. I do have a bio on Lincoln next to my bed, but I have not read it much in the last two weeks.

Other recent reads include
Paddy Clark Ha Ha Ha
The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist Fight in Heaven
and Book on MLK and Malcom X
