Been reading Dracula on the Kindle. Plan to watch the movie (Coppola's w/ Gary Oldman and Sir Anthony Hopkins) soon after.

I recently experimented with checking out a Kindle version of the 3rd installment in Edmund Morris' TR biography. Very cool! Used my existing GA Library system account to do it. Curious to see how it handles expiration in 2 days. I will need to extend my check-out as I'm not even close to done.

By the way, for a biography, the Morris books on Teddy are quite good reads. Subject matter helps.

Woot! A Game of Thrones is finally available to me via Kindle e-loan. I will try to finish off Matterhorn tonight. It's a very good read about a platoon deep in the shit in Vietnam.

I've not read a good book in ages. I've not read in ages. :teehee:

Do you recommend Matterhorn Hill?

Someone recommend me a few. :green:

If you like war novels, then yes, Matterhorn Hill is a good read.

I'll read anything that is well written. Most of the books are better than the movies. I think of the one -- Shooter. Point of Impact which is the book was so much better. If I read the book first, I can deal with the movie...usually.

Reading Lolita in Tehran

Wow, this was a great read, and re-kindled my love of literary fiction. I've been heavily into nonfiction lately (see my other post on TR), but after finishing this book, I downloaded a lot of free classics from Amazon.

HA! I should post a pic of the post card. :teehee:

I got it today and you do have some :quote2: sloppy :quote2: handwriting Bren. :green: I'm teasing. It wasn't :quote2: that :quote2: bad.

I've read quite a few of them. I am skipping around. I did find Happy and the screamin' babies one. :lol2:

Thank you buddy! Btw everyone, it's signed by the author; Pat Ingoldsby. Of course I can't read the Gaelic. That part must really be the :quote2: dirty :quote2: text!

Don't read Darker Shades of Grey. I'm all for sex, but that stuff is just a tad too crazy for me! I read two of the books (because someone recommended it) and started the 3rd one on my Kindle. I've only read to the 5th Chapter. That was 3 weeks ago. :boggled: I much doubt I will finish it.

Post Re: Whatchya reading now?
I agree, LA. I read part of the first book out of morbid curiosity (mommy porn is not really my genre) and yeah, that has to be some of the worst writing I've ever suffered through. I don't know how many times I read the words "murmur" or "inner goddess" or "oh my". It was laughable in my opinion. Not to mention the fact that the main characters are COMPLETELY worthless as human beings. The girl is just about that most useless and poorly written character I've ever read, and the dude is an utterly contemptible sociopath.

The fact that those books are setting historical sales records makes me weep inside.

I can't believe I read two of them. I hurried to read them because I only had two days before the Boss went back to their house. So, when she got them back she called me and couldn't wait to see what I thought. She went on about these books like they were something else. They were something alright. Let me gag.

I told her, "He is crazy and she is crazier for having anything to do with him." She said, "So you didn't LIKE THEM????" Like she was shocked. I just said, "Not really my cup of tea. And evidently she doesn't drink the same tea as me." (The girl character liked tea)

Heading out to howth this morning to see if I can find Pat... Mind you , I can never find him when I go looking for him..

Nice day to take the guzzi for a spin,,,, out to the harbour... The Gaelic ain't any ruder than the English,,,

The poem "Rita with love" is still my favourite .... I love the way it makes me feel....


I might post it up on here during the week an let you American types have a read.....( if your good). :)

Give Nettie a kiss for me! :green:

I'm kinda getting use to his random thoughts. The short ones. Once you read a few, you get his humor. I am still lost on a few of them, but I'm sure Pat would be lost if I was carrying on a conversation with him. :green:

I've read a few more today. You are probably right about communicating with Pat. But, I like different.

Sorry you missed him Bren. Next time tell him a lady from Florida (the tip end of the USA) said, "Howdy" and she likes the book. :green:
