    Seriously great book. All about how art is often prophetic of scientific advancement.


    I just put this on my library "hold" list. Thanks. It reminds me of Leonard Shlain's Art and Physics: Parallel Visions in Space, Time, and Light .

    i'm currently taking a seminar on Jame Joyce's Finnegans Wake. I go back and forth between loving and wanting to die, sometimes both at the same time.

    picked up Gabriel Garcia Marquez's short story collection called Strange Pilgrims.

    Will finish Jhumpa Lahiri's Unaccustomed Earth tonight.

    THE DIARIES OF AL. L. ROWSE (Edited by Richard Ollard) I knew of Rowse only from his editions of the Shakespeare plays. He was much more than a Shakespeare expert. What a gossipy, crusty, opinionated figure he was. His prose is beautiful.

    Read Meditations on Mary last night. Picked up an anthology of Chekov's short stories last night that I will read at lunch. Finally started Home two days ago, it is very good. Also reading Brunelleschi's Dome which is very very good.

    Uh, The Sun Also fucking Rises? A Moveable Feast is great, but TSAR is one of the best novels ever.


    TSAR is a fine novel, but the one I return to more often - and enjoy more - is A Moveable Feast.

    Just finished the second of Stieg Larsson's trilogy: The Girl who Played with Fire. Not quite as compelling or linear as Dragon Tattoo, but still a good read.

    Will finally bear down on Midnight's Children and The House of Gucci.

    You laugh, but Im reading this. Easily the best 'self-help' book Ive ever laid eyes on. The basic ideas are rudimentary to a well-adjusted and successful son of a bitch like me, but I just imagine how much smoother life would be if 1 in 10 people internalized these concepts.

    i wanted to read that one...as the saying goes if you want to be something study what they are doing first. I find that true in alot of situations and especially in three things being effective, successful, and investments.

    Moveable Feast? That's just a bunch of short pieces, right?
