Bringing Down the House is a great book, especially if you have any interest in gambling. I highly recommend it. I've been readying light, fluffy books this summer. I just finished Bergdorf Blondes, and before that I read the Shopaholic series. If any of you girls are looking for a quick, entertaining, thoughtless read, I recommend them all.
I just saw that Voltaire quote, and I felt the need to chime in with my own Voltaire:"It is an infantile superstition of the human spirit that virginity would be thought a virtue and not the barrier that separates ignorance from knowledge."
i'm reading "you shall know my velocity" (dave eggers)and "the spirit catches you and you fall down" (fadiman)and then back to "middlesex" (eugenides) from which i took a little breakand "the jane austen book club"
Just bought Montauk's Book. Based on the size of it, I don't think I'll get to it too soon.Actually it isn't that bad. Question for all you avid readers if I may, ...Does the thickness of the book come into play as to whether or not you will buy it? Or if you know it's going to be good, or heard it was good, the amount of pages is irrevelant? I really wanted to buy Slick Willy's book, but come on, isn't that overkill? I love movies, but if they push 3 hours in length, I start looking for something else to see.
