Any thoughts on the Barrack Obama book?

I couldn't wait. I'm going to Borders today on my lunch break.

It was a gift, and I was so psyched to get it, as I read a lot about politics, socialism, civil rights- the kinds of things Barrack is into.

The book started out with a bang, and I got half way through it and now I'm kind of chugging along. It has been very interesting, seeing how the two worlds he grew up in interacted. I will finish it, but the speed has slowed down a little. I'll report back when I do finish.

Cool. I just got back and I bought that, along with 3 other books. I'm buying books like I used to buy CDs!


Love your new sig, btw! Gwen

I this book! I just started Snapper.

I just bought JM Barrie and the Lost Boys by Andrew Birkin and plan to start that after the Barrytown Trilogly.

Awesome!


The other 3 books I got today were:

The Secret Life of Bees
Random Family (which I discovered thanks to The Polysyllabic Spree)

and I can't think of the title now offhand, but I found a sequel to one of my favorite books of all time, Postcards From The Edge by Carrie Fisher. I just had to get it.

This is in addition to the 6 or 7 I bought the other day.

*blocks Amazon.com from her favorites*

Thanks! Yesss Gwen!!

I always love your avatar, this one rocks!

Let me know how you find Barack's book.

Secret Life of Bees I heard is terrific!

Just out of curiousity- do you keep your books after you read them? What about ones you don't like?


Anyone ever hear of "The Country Girl's Trilogy" by Edna O'Brien? I heard good things and am thinking of buying.

I'll definitely let you know what I think of it.

I'm a pack rat, so I tend to keep most everything I buy. I have books at my mom's house that I haven't looked at in years, but I can't bear to part with them. On the same note, when we had a flood 5 years ago and I lost a box of books I was devestated.

Finished A People's History..., started Coupland's Eleanor Rigby. It's his best book since Girlfriend in a Coma, I think.

Just finished Tolstoy's Anna Karenina and am currently on Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man- which I love. In school I'm reading Hawthorne's TheScarlet Letter.

I'm reading them to my class. We're on the fifth one, and we love them. Although, I think we're finding this one a bit tedious and the premise may be wearing thin.

I finished Eleanor Rigby in 2 days. It is right up there with Microserfs and Generation X. Coupland's best in years.

I'm on to The Working Poor now.
