    One of my all-time favorite authors is Robert

    Fulghum. His book "It Was On Fire When I Lay Down It" is full of funny, down to earth, everyday situational stories.

    At that moment, it seemed to him

    Why Hitchiker'S Guide To The Galaxy Is One Of My Top 5

    "'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.' 'But,' says Man, 'the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED...

    My friend lent me the book Solomon Kane.

    It's not bad so far, but I did notice a big mistake in the book. The chapters go as followed: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 7, 8, 9, etc.

    Sometimes I read to much.

    .. 'Just one chapter' to me is like 'just one beer' to an alcoholic...And maybe it is a similar addiction. To escape the pressure and thoughts and everything pressing in, to just forget and escape from all those things pressing on my brain, to think of something else strongly...

    The Asimov Story

    OK, folks, you asked for it, so now I'll share it. The year was 1983.  My best friend at the time, Haig, was a huge Trekkie. This was just after the Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan" had come out, and there was a Trek convention (actually, I ...

    I hate how the television has taken over

    so many lives. I much prefer to curl up with a good book. I feel reading stirs the imagination much more than tv. I also enjoy the solitude and inner reflection that comes from reading.

    for at least an hour a day. I especially like reading books about those in the medical professions and books written by people with mental health problems who are in recovery. I like fiction too and have recently started reading some thrillers.

    I Especially Adore Audiobooks.

    Chores go faster! Hands-free! Classics and physics and metaphysics... it is a smorgasbord, a cornucopia of wealth. Amazing variety of experiences in autobiographies, amazing amount of speculation in biographies. Spectacular variety in religions. Love it!

    I never planned on reading it, but I had a male friend tell me it was a decent read and a cute story. Half way through the first book I have to agree so far it's cute and not really what I expected. For right now it's something to read and at least I'll know what the other...

    But writing's love/hate.

    I've been trying to figure out why. I've counted some reasons, flipped them over like coins. Seen the other sides. Still, some questions hide answers, like why should I write? When people implore they're often vague. "Why do you urge?" gets dismissive replies. Rarely answers...
