I'm actually not reading it, but got it on audio "Persuasion" by Jane Austen. The library was supposed to have a copy and when I arrived to pick it up, it wasn't there, but the audio version was. I'm still going to read the book since I get much more out of it reading than listening. "Persuasion" was Jane Austen's last book and was printed posthumously. It is quite interesting about a couple who had fallen in love as young people and thru family interference not married but found each other later.

Have just moved on to Tulipomania - "The story of the world's most coveted flower & the extraordinary passions it aroused".

Very interesting read so far. Amazing how entire lives & fortunes were both made & lost over the TULIP, of all things!!

i'm reading an ibm x-series 342 server maintenance manual as i chat here today. one of our servers crashed, and is stuck loading virtual product data, and the spare system board is having serveraid problems.

1 guess which is more interesting. ibm, or foodies.

Would you believe I'm reading Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code? I waited till it came out in paperback because that huge hardcover edition is very difficult to read in bed. I'm half way thru this book and it's a great read.

After finishing The Fountainhead I had to grab Ayn Rands next book Atlas Shrugged. I've gotten hooked on Rand lately. :)
