I saw the movie a few years ago and was fascinated by its strangeness. My own copy at least!

Rereading A People's History of the United States: 1492 to Present by Howard Zinn.

How could a book with a title so wrong, be so right? :lol:

Quote:
Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People's History of the United States is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of -- and in the words of -- America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

Bill Cosby did a new book, called something like "Why Was I Born" and I perused through it this morning. Truly did not think much of it.

I liked Ender's Game as well!

I currently am reading "The Rosie Project" by Graeme Simison and think it is incredibly funny.

This one is helping me to understand an awful lot of confusing things about humanity.

Reading the July/August 2013 Analog Science Fiction and Fact

I honestly think I like reading short stories better than slogging through novels.

Also trying to get through A Feast for Crows. I think there was a reason I stopped reading it a while back.
