I REALLY need to read more Chabon. His Casanova back ups have been gold so far.

I abandoned my Song of Ice and Fire re-read and am finishing my very first read of IT.
Wailin' the eff outta that vibraslap!

Has anyone read Black Is the New White by Paul Mooney? Worth ordering?

I wish I still read. I walk around with books all the time, but never open them.

You don't need to read them, Dave.

Just press them to your forehead for awhile.

Like a compress? Should they be cold?

Depends on the weather (just like smoothies). Works either way.

"Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" is my favorite Chabon novel, probably a Top 5 book in general for me.

Disappointed to see Mike gave low stars to that Wells Tower book. I liked it and just gave it out on a high recommendation.

What can I say? It didn't do it for me. I'm pretty hard on most contemporary writers. I guess I just wasn't made for these times. I'm reading Chekhov's short stories lately. That's more my speed.

I recently watched the documentary Jodorowsky's Dune on Netflix.
This inspired me to read Dune.
Its really good!  I am not much of a sci-fi reader but its pretty impressive.

I read Uncle Vanya recently. Did not induce belly laughs.

Did I say he was a laugh riot? I'm sorry you got the wrong impression.
