The Compleat Conductor by Gunther Schuller. He says everybody is doing it wrong, but him. Not sure I'll finish this one.

Lolita sure was a hoot, though.

"In a Sunburned Country" by Bill Bryson about Australia.

This guy is funny and wrote this travel book from a slightly different slant.

Fun read.

Just finished "The Little Sister" by Raymond Chandler (I'm nutty about Raymond Chandler)

Just started "Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan ... LOVE IT, and I'm only on page 10!

And... I just picked up a copy of "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" by David Sedaris, which sits on my bedside table, ready for pages to be dog-eared.

The autistic Mind by Temple Grandin, I read her bio and saw the movie, but this was one is more of a journey into her mind as a scientist, with fascinating, unique insights from her unusual mind and and related insights.

Have to read the owl book, I liked Naked & Me talk pretty, a lot.

Good luck with infinite jest, Walleye! So far, the jest has been own me!!

Read Strong Motion, recently.. Is it just me or to Frantzen's other novels not work as well as the adjustments?

I have ADHD so it ain't just one.

Jededia Smith - the OG hardman
Wild Bill Donovan - the guy who started the OSS/CIA
Kaufman's Advanced Birding - hey, I'm a birdbrain, what can I say?
Birder's Guide to Michigan - like I'm gonna go there unprepared?
All This and Robins too - bird guide to Wisconsin. Like I'm just going to Michigan?
Collapse;How Societies Choose to Succeed or Fail - probably too late for us.

I here ya, Jaybro. What I have always found for me is that, in great literature, the books come to me when I am ready for them, and not the other way around.

Hi Kathy... Surely you jest.. I will check back after I have actually read it.. I can already tell that I am going to like it, though. I just have a feeling about such things. Funny shirt, by-the-way!

haha, I read " a heartbreaking work of staggering genius"... at first I thought it was the best thing ever, then i just thought it wasn't... but he wrote "what is the what" and that was THE WHAT.
