I have been getting free books through work for my entire adult life. The only book I've actually paid for in the last few years was Bono's book. They even paid for my Bob Dylan book because it has literary value. I would be happy to give some books away once in awhile but I don't know if I could commit to any kind of regular thing. What kinds of things do you like to read, bg?

i felt exactly the same way, but wasn't brave enough to say it.

hmm, i suppose the only thing i would ever ask someone to look out for would be copies of nabokov's lolita. i am always interested in copies of it with different covers, different publication dates.

and if you, joyful, or anyone else has anything unusual like that that they are looking for as well, please let me know.

Please let me know when you have found it and are halfway through it. I would almost guarantee you will love/appreciate this in some way. It's a little like White Oleander in style.

I know this one has been touted here before, but if you haven't read Reading Lolita in Tehran yet, treat yourself.

has anyone ever read this book- ''Class Action: The Landmark Case That Changed Sexual Harassment Law" ?

I saw the new movie North Country last night - this movie was inspired by ths book, w/ some dramatic license

It is directed by the director of Whale Rider, and it's a fantastic, powerful movie. It made me so sad and furious, what these women were subjected to. Sexual harassment is truly evil. If you want to see a movie that will make you think and feel, and maybe differently, see this one

from Roger Ebert

"North Country," which tells her story, is inspired by the life of a real person, Lois Jenson, who filed the first class action lawsuit for sexual harassment in American history.

The filmmakers say Josey Aimes is a character inspired by Jenson's lawsuit but otherwise fictional; the real Jenson is not an Erin Brockovich-style firebrand, and keeps a low profile."

here's a link from the movie's web site where you can do some things to get involved w/ this issue

I'd like to second Sherry's post about "Reading Lolita in Tehran" by Azar Nafisi. I couldn't put it down.
