Many of you are reading books that suck. The King of Torts, for example, sucks. The book I just finished yesterday was The Plot Against America by Philip Roth which most decidedly did not suck. I started and finished it because I was about 100 pages into Last Night at Twisted River by John Irving and I was fearful that it might suck. I guess I'll go back to that tonight and see if I can figure out whether it sucks or not.

As indicated above, I read it again recently. I didn't find it nearly as interesting as I once did.

I just noticed that you read this. I read it a couple years back and thought it was good, despite having some messed up stuff in it.

On the other hand, I finished his latest book on Pat Tillman recently, and did not enjoy it at all.

Just finished Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Nice easy read. Made me want to go out and pick up a biography on the man.


Although not a "complete" biography, I can HIGHLY recommend: Team of Rivals by Delores Kearns Goodwin. I'll never think of Lincoln as an obscure, bumbling country lawyer again after reading this. Great book.
