  1. A book some idiot wants to burn in a bonfire. He should read it first.
  2. Still reading Herzog, by Saul Bellow. It's such a fine read I returned the library copy and bought it to read a few times. My fave author's masterwork.
  3. Herzog, by Saul Bellow. His books aren't light reads but bring amazing insights about life.
  4. Greg Iles- Dead Sleep. A gripping tale of loss and triumph, discovery, love and credenzas... Not bad.
  5. I've been gobbling up bestseller paperbacks and feel kinda stupid for neglecting my reading list. Kinda like my diet failures lately. I keep promising to do Faulkner and tofu, but I'm weak.
  6. A Pack Of Two by Carol Knapp A description of a single woman's relationship with her dog. Excellent if you love dogs.
  7. Henderson the Rain King by Saul Bellow. Nothing trendy or Hollywoodesque but very substantial.
  8. Last week I read two Saul Bellow novels, Dangling Man and The Victim. Both were so engrossing I read Ravelstein yesterday and will pick up Augie March and Herzog this week. For an old guy, he can really write. Somewhere I read Artie Lange's Too Fat to Fish. A fluffy celeb indulgence by Howard Stern's sidekick. Self-indulgent slob without pretense. Not much on TV lately.
  9. A few breakups are followed by reconciliation, just as a few people win lotteries. Some of them breakup again because the problems haven't changed. Hope keeps you from starting to heal, since aceptance is the first step of the process. Some people take months or years to realize it's time to start recovery and stop living in the past. Let go, buy a lottery ticket and move on.
  10. Because the OP brought up that very idea within the time period this thread was most active, a year ago.
  11. Sexual identity is about one's own identity and not that of your partner. The drive to change gender is rooted in the feeling of being in the wrong body, but not in being with a certain partner. Many m2f transgendered are lesbians, but much happier as women. Some find love from an understanding man. Luckily, those men exist.
  12. Maybe being a Salieri isn't so bad. He was one of the finest musicians, composers and teachers of his era.
