I read the book first and bawled my eyes out...thought I was prepared for the movie...watched it, and still cried.

Of course, I'm just a blubbering idiot anyway.

Well, I just finished "Smoke and Mirrors" a short story collection by Neil Gaiman. I kept hearing good things about him, I read "American Gods" which never really got off the ground for me, but thought I give him another go. A mixed bag, I suppose, I liked his twist on the Snow White story best.

I just finished the second book in the Sandman graphic novel series, and I'm reading this fascinating little book called "The Number Devil" by Hans Magnus Enzensberger.

i'm reading a clockwork orange. it's hard to read, being in slang and whatnot, but so far it's really good.

I am reading Whoi Moved My Cheese and it's been such an emotional experience for me. Reading this raw, gritty piece is inspiring! I'm really thankful for my friends and family who inspired me to get this book and reassured me when the chapters got a little dense. I just want to say thank you foer that and I shall never forget it because sometimes that's what beng an American is all about!

Skeptical Environmentalist by Bjørn Lomborg

yep. that same guy who recently put together the Copenhagen Consensus and ruffled the feathers of many doomsayers.

worth the gander if you are interested in a fresh look of the environmental litany.
