    I've read that book at least once a year since I was 12; one of my all time favorites. I buy a bunch of copies and give them out at Xmas.

    Also, regarding Rand... fucking over rated drivel. Seriously, I started reading her work thinking I should at least have knowledge of it... WHY?!?!?!?!

    Is this your first Philipa Gregory book? I picked up TOBG on a whim and absolutely loved it. Just wondering if her other books are as good?

    Currently reading "Eleven Minutes" by Paulo Coelho.. EXCELLENT!

    Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin. Excellent book at four women from the 20's: Dorothy Parker (love her), Edna St. Vincent Millay (we'd have a blast ripping her apart these days), Zelda Fitzgerald and Edna Ferber (author of Showboat, etc). Really interesting to read about women breaking the mold and trying to live in what was very much a man's world then.

    I loved that book. I'm hoping the movie does not suck.

    I just finished the Morton book. It was interesting but no bombshells. Way over-hyped.

    I'm reading The Pillars of the Earth now. It is huge! But so far it's hooked me in.

    A book in French that is quite good. It's the third in a serie of 4. Reminds me of Outlander. It takes place in Scotland during the rebellion. I very rarely read in French, but I did this time as it came highly recommended.

    Yes, it was my first P. Gregory book and I've heard the movie is horrible.

    Just went on my Amazon hit list. This sounds fantastic. When I'm feeling off, I Google quotes from Parker and feel much better.

    Just finished Hell Bent for Leather : Confessions of a Heavy Metal Addict.

    Was a little disappointed but shouldn't be. My expectations were too high.

    Coming of age tale about a guy in the '80s who loves metal music and gives it a spin, until he ditches it in his early 30s. The photos are priceless.

    Some of the narrative gets tedious, but there are moments of poking fun at himself that make it work. Some rants like Chuck Klosterman but without any of the intellectual pretense.

    Good if you're looking for nostalgia of that period.

    I just got Gypsy and Me: At Home and on the Road With Gypsy Rose Lee. Haven't started it yet.

    Started Little Children last night. Quite good actually! Easy to read, but not for dumb-dumbs. Anyone want to chat via PM's about it feel free, I'm in the mood.
