hey moel-

that book is really good. I love the story of creating a man from the mind, but that's fictional. It's been awhile since I've picked up Borges.

Looks like you've got the french thing going, save Sagan. Demon haunted world is excellent if only for the baloney kit.

no books purchased today, but someone loaned me Life of Pi which I started this morning.

The first half really got my hopes up, but the last half mostly let them down, Pincher Martin style. Great summer beach book though.

seems to be the bane of this book- good conversation starter leading most folks saying that they could only get to the middle.

I wonder what's in the middle to stop random intelligent men.

Wait. Don't tell me. I'm not to the middle yet.

Ooo. I love Margaret Atwood. 'Blind Assassin' was good.... Haven't read 'Oryx and Crake' yet but I've read a lot of her others...
