I've been working on "Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates" by Tom Robbins off and on since January. I shall defeat this book...eventually.

Anyone ever read Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer"? I can't get through the first fifteen pages.

Tom Robbins can be a tough read. His best was either Even Cowgirls Get the Blues or Another Roadside Attraction.

Sounds like me 10 years ago when I tried to read Rushdie's "Satanic Verses."

I gave up after 3 days .... and 10 pages!

Greeley, Colorado. Work in Denver.

Have an Architect in the family so any trip to anywhere always includes a tour of the notable buildings.

The visual keys in that library are so great. The place looks (and is) enormous but wherever you see yellow, there is movement. Either escalators or stairs. I like having the Dewey numbers on the floor outside each aisle. Just some good, and practical concepts.

Took lots of pictures there. I had to order a new battery charger for my Ibook. (Pup chewed through the wires) As soon as it gets here I will download the pics and maybe post a couple in the amatuer thread.

Can't wait for your Seattle pics. I'll try to notice the Yellow=Flow aspect next time. Each floor is painted - walls and ceiling - one color. The 5th (?) is all RED. Pretty cool.

Funny, but I don't go into the stacks much anymore .... I do it all on the Internet. I just show up on the eastside ground floor qand go to may last name and pick up what's waiting.


My friend and bass player lived in Greeley in a big rambler of a house his family owned at 1602 11th Avenue ... we used to go to a Mexican fast-food type place called "Antunas" on 9th Avenue and 16th .... great Green Chile ! !

But that was between 1981 and '83 ... incidentally, 81 was the first year the Broncos trained there. He HATED when I stopped to watch.

We also used to go to "The Armory" up north on 8th Ave...

MY SHAME: I returned Gravity's Rainbow without having read a word. When I got home that day, The Simpsons was on, and Lisa mentioned Gravity's Rainbow in connection with her new college-aged gymnastics buddies.

For SHAME, BroncoBuff ...

Here's a couple more I've read recently:
"Blind Waves" by Steven Gould. Very, very good read.
"The Other Wind" by Ursula K. Le Guin. Don't bother unless you really, really, really like dragons. It's a pretty dry read. Had it been more than 250 pages I probably wouldn't have finished it.

Another one I read, years ago, by Steven Gould is called "Jumper." That one was a great read. I finished it off in two days.

I finished another one by Kathleen Ann Goonan while I was in Oregon. "Light Music" was every bit as good as "Crescent City Rhapsody." If you read them, be sure to read "Crescent City Rhapsody" first since the stories are related.

Just got done reading this a few weeks ago - it was okay, not great.



Now I'm reading Night Over Water, but Ken Follett.

I really enjoyed that one as part of my NFL learning experience.

I can see liking it more from that perspective. And I wouldn't say that I didn't like it, exactly. I just had higher hopes for it. I love football and I really like John Feinstein. I had just expected it to be one of the more enjoyable books I had ever read, and it definitely wasn't that.

Why would she want a hamburger when she could have a Humburger?
