I finished Cider House Rules a few months back. Loved that book. You might try A Prayer For Owen Meany next, which my one of my all time favs. If you're a practicing Christian or believer you'll probably get even more out of it than I did. I've read Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, which had a profound effect on me, but I haven't had the willpower yet to attempt Atlas Shrugged (I love long books, but I'm still working on Ulysses).

Oh yeah, and Gracie, Jitterbug Pefume is also my favorite Tom Robbins. But that might have somthing to do with my designs on living forever...

I'm finally getting to Barack Obama's autobiography (Dreams from My Father), which I bought before Christmas at the Strand in NYC.

The Best Awful by Carrie Fisher. Not nearly as good as Postcards from the Edge, but pretty decent.

I'm in the middle of Garth Nix's Abhorsen. It's in a trilogy all fantasy and that, but I love it.

Cheers

I read The Commitments last night.

I am now reading The Snapper.

Today I picked up at the library: babyville by Jane Green *a fun chick book*

I suggest a strict training regimen before you embark on that one. It's like getting ready to climb Mt. Everest.

You might want to read Homer's Odyssey, The Bible, the dictionary, and 100 push ups a day for a month before cracking that Joyce open.

Say your goodbyes now, folks. We may never see her again...


best of luck

I've read Homer's Odyssey and the Bible....I don't do 100 daily pushups but close to 50. I was a English major until recently so I hope I've still got those mental muscles....

Thanks for the good wishes! I'll let you know if I survive!

You are totally prepared--were you in girl scouts?
Because you might need to untie the knot around your brain when you're done with this one.

I saw a really cool edition of Ulysses in Milan, of all places, that had this chart which broke down every section of the book. It told you what part of the body was featured in it, what part of The Odyssey it related to, and a bunch of other stuff. I should have bought it, but I already had 8 books in my backpack, including my own copy of Ulysses.

Anyone read Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace? It's another towering tome, but it was brutally funny and one of the most brilliant things I've ever laid my eyes on. I used to read it on the T (subway in Boston) on the way to work and missed my stop many times (whereupon I would get off and read more as I walked back on the sidewalk). I was so addicted to the thing (and ironically, addiction is one of the themes), I practically went through withdrawal when it was over. The fact that it doesn't really have an ending may have had something to do with that.

alright, blabbering over.
