Finally finished Sophie's Choice. A sad sad story :cry:

Now to change gears, I'm reading this non fiction book. Everything you'd want to know about migraines.

Oliver Sacks is an excellent author. I've read some of his other neurological books.

Right on, Bonny! I first read OS about 16 years ago. Three different titles,

1.A Leg To Stand On
2. The Island of The Colorblind
3. An Anthropologist on Mars

and now I've decided to completly make my way through all of his material in chronological order.

First off, I think we all know that if an apple does "poop", there's a video of it on this here internet! :mrgreen:

Secondly; I'm reading Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.

finished with what might be called "comic books", but i would hardly classify them as such:

eating steve's brain (i'll look up the author's name later)
read it in the library--odd behaviour from a woman turns out to be a national (and nearly world-wide) epidemic. i still say frank could've written something dark and scary like this, after reading the story that was supposed to be included with the original lumpy gravy lp. is it included with the cd?

will and abe's guide to the universe--matt groening
matt uses some of the things he hears his son's say or conversations they have to hilarious effect.

the freddie stories, one! hundred! demons! and what is it? all by lynda barry
the first two are her wonderful tales of her (to put it mildly) dysfunctional family. sad, silly, funny and at times frightening.
the last book is a sort of "how-to" on writing, but like none you've ever seen before. using collages and stories, she makes it fun and mind-blowing to get those creative writing juices going.

jackie ormes-the first african american woman cartoonist--nancy goldstein
i had never heard of this woman before, but she did wonderful work. her work was published in black newspapers and magazines back in the late 30's-50's.

i am america(and so can you!) by stephen colbert
if you've ever seen the colbert repor' :wink: , then you know how funny this is. not finished yet. go out and read it, nation!

Just started this, and McCarthy's "and this and that and another and on-that-subject and oh-by-the-way" method of sentence construction is irritating me already. I'll persevere, though.
