    Has anyone read this?  It's hilarious and sad and strange.  I kind of like it.  


    Thank you so much for posting this! Based on your description, I read this and loved it. It has been my lifelong dream to hibernate.

    RIP Paul Auster. I’m going to start working through his books again. I think I have them all, but some are here in Sydney and others are still in a box in Wales, so I can’t read them in order.

    Just finished Out of Africa.
    Lot's of subtle life truths revealed/recognized in that book. Plus I'm easily influenced. Really loved it after pushing through some sad parts about the wildlife.
    Hope to watch the movie tonight.

    I'm reading The Man in the High Castle. Frankly, I think it kinda sucks, which surprises me. It's a bit of a slog. Barely anything happens for most of it. It could have been so much better, with the amazing concept.
    I remember when the series was out, hearing that the book it was based on was not great. Meanwhile 90% of that series was great!

    I finally started this and am about halfway through. 

    Road by Cormac McCarthy 2007 Vintage International trade paperback - Picture 1 of 6

    What a book!  Not for everyone because it's rather dark, but I literally couldn't put it down, and read it in one sitting.

    I just finished the audiobook for The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams By Stacy Schiff. Very interesting. I've ready quite a few books about that time in U.S. history, but this emphasized events I didn't know.

    I'm a slow reader with CM.  Read some paragraphs 5 times.  Almost distracting how much I enjoy some of his wording!

    Yes, quite the wordsmith.  And nothing  wrong with savoring good writing!
