Barton Fink. A pretty odd Coen Brothers film. I'm not sure if I should recommend it yet.

Salt: A World History, by Mark Kurlansky. A fantastic book, he also has one called "Cod."

A big, fat Michener book - Chesapeake.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

My daughter and I just finished reading Superfudge together. I loved that book as a kid and was so happy that she enjoyed it as much ad I did. The only disappointing part is that it has been updated for the times. There is mention of laptop computers and mp3's. I dint see why they needed to add those things in. It is not like they were important to the story.

We started The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe last night and even though it is a little advanced for her she is really enjoying it.

For myself, I just finished The Girl Who Played With Fire. I enjoyed it more than the first book in the series, but did not care for the end. It seemed very sudden with doing a good job of tying things up.

I just started A Game Of Throwns. I have heard excellent things about it, but so far it has not sucked me in. I am not far into it yet though so I know I need to give it more time to grow on me.

I'm not much of a reader. I have a hard time concentrating on things. I probably have ADHD, I just never got diagnosed. I read current events, editorials, technical manuals, but as far as novels, stories, biographies go, they just don't seem to hold my intrest. We just splashed out and got a new camera, so I am currently reading a Photography book. I get a page read and am asleep. I have to go back and read it over the next night.

Never read books, but read lots of magazines, computers, music, audio equipment, photography and whatever takes my interest at the time.
I have never managed to become a book worm, unlike my mother and father to an extenet, my wife or our daughter who is destined for journalism on completing her university education next year.
