    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Too bad. eBay has a great auction for a new Submariner band, plus a matching belt.

    Really enjoyed this one. Didn't see the ending coming. Love the way she writes. Very minimal yet flowery enough.

    Didn't understand all the imagined technology and had a hard time grasping what was going on in the beginning. Can't believe he imagined all that in 1984

    Not bad but not the best Mishima, his usual topics and rhetoric.

    I picked this up at Quimby's in Chicago. I'm about 50 pages in and just haven't really enjoyed it.

    Been feeling anxious lately and I'm revisiting this.

    Finished The Mother Tongue a few days ago. I started A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. It's good so far.

    A Ride to Khiva.

    Great writing, fantastic descriptions, interesting situations but I feel like I keep treading the same ground.

    Just an update, this is an excellent book. Very tough to start with (until you look up the structure) but very touching.

    Finished A Little Life a few days ago. It was a good book although at times it was almost like the author was going out of her way to make sure every horrible thing befell at least one of the characters.

    After that downerfest I decided to read something a little more pulpy, so I'm halfway through Ian Tregillis's The Rising, which is a sequel to The Mechanical.

    I recently finished Mary Boyle Bradley's book about her husbands fight with Multiple Sclerosis. I enjoyed the book, and enjoyed learning more about Low Dose Neltrexone with it's ability to help improve MS and other autoimmune conditions.

    "Up the Creek with a Paddle: Beat MS and All Autoimmune Disorders with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)"

    http://www.amazon.com/Creek-Paddle-...456501196&sr=8-8&keywords=low+dose+naltrexone

    "In 1986, when I first discovered LDN, if I had Mary Boyle Bradley on my team, this drug would have been approved, marketed and manufactured by a reputable pharmaceutical company. I have no doubt about that." Dr. Bernard Bihari

    The story is simple. It is about love, life and hope. After years of battling with the onslaught of her husband's Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, Mary stumbled on a little known doctor in New York City, Dr. Bernard Bihari. Many people on the internet claimed that Dr. Bihari knew how to stop every type of MS from progressing. Even better, it was claimed that he could help everyone with an autoimmune disorder, ranging from psoriasis to AIDS. It was claimed that Dr. Bihari could help them with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). Eventually, Mary's husband took a leap of faith and put Dr. Bihari's work to the test. LDN worked. It stopped his MS from progressing. Since September 2002, a worldwide campaign has ignited with passionate momentum to get LDN medically recognized as a treatment for MS and all autoimmune disorders. LDN is a cheap, generic, out of patent drug with no known side-effects. Despite the fact that there is no financial incentive to entice any pharmaceutical company to investigate new uses for Naltrexone, the ambition is for LDN to hit the masses and improve the lives of millions. Small scale LDN clinical trials are finally making progress across the globe and are paving the way for a much better future for everyone who suffers from an autoimmune disorder.

    About 500 pages into War and Peace. Idk why it has such a reputation for being difficult; it's actually super readable.

    I think it's just about the length as opposed to the readability in the sense you mean.

    About 80 pages into DeLillo's white noise, I feel like everything will blow up very soon.
