My gf lives +1 hr away, and since we´re doing the whole 1 wknd here 1 wknd there thing I get a lot of reading done...

La Tregua (The Truce) - Mario Benedetti, Uruguay; one of my all time favorites, really rockin´ book, a must.

100 years of solitude - G G Marquez; obvious classic, read it 4 times, keep a notebook handy for the family tree.

The Life of Don Pascual Duarte - Camilo J Cela (?); crude, distasteful, a true naturalist. Another of my all time top picks.

Awesome book.

I really like The Things they Carried much better, but O'Brien ain't bad at all.

Yes. His last 2 books have departed from the whole cyberpunk thing and are excellent. The previous was Pattern Recognition.

Great book if you have to work with other people especially in sales.
After several friends had suggested I read that book, I bought and read it about a year and a half ago. Shocked

on dingus's recommendation I picked up A soldier of the great war from the library. But this is the wrong time of the year for me to be reading. It's summer and the tour is on the tv and the sun it up late.

I haven't started it yet.

When American Airlines, in their infinitesimal wisdom, recently canceled my flight from Boston to Seattle, then rerouted us through FUCKING Dallas just prior to losing four people's luggage...


OK,
for the geographically challenged, Boston and Seattle are on a straight line. Dallas is, well, Dallas, and really not close to either Boston or Seattle.

Bottom line is I picked up Stephen King's "Dreamcatcher" as an alternative to putting an olive pick through my eye, and on closer reflection, the whole olive idea sounds mildly amusing.

AA charged us $15 per bag to take our bags at Boston, place ridiculously bar-coded tags on them, and then proceded to lose them and tell us the bar-codes really
don't mean anything,

We were going to ALASKA, and were packed for that. Call me stupid(you won't be the first), but four peoples rain boots, jackets, and clothes for six days were all gone, with America Airlines then and now denying any responsibility.

We spent almost $1000 outfitting 4 people with 2 outfits and rain gear.

First, I just replied to one of your posts (the LEARN ENGLISH VIDEO).. checked my email, and rc.com notified me that you just replied to my post about the book. ..ah, it must be fate :)

I'm a huge fan of arthurian tales. I'm trying to do research of 'arthurianly' symbolic pictures, so I can start drawing up my next tatoo :)

It makes me happy to know that someone else greatly enjoy the tale :)

Regards,
Geniey
