I'm almost finished with Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt. I do not recommend this book. . .lots of wasted sentences.

I tried to read it twice.

I failed twice.

I finished "Animal Farm" by George Orwell yesterday.  I enjoyed the social and political overtones.  

I should finish "Fehrenheit 451" by  Ray Bradbury by the end of the day.  I like it so far.

I missed both of these during school, since I switched school 3 times.

November has been pretty much a disaster for me so far, what with being detained in Minnesota 'way past my usual 'getaway' to the South, by car trouble that took five days in the shop (a part had to come from Sweden!) and other vexatious little things happening.   It took two cardboard cartons to bring my 'summer books' here, but I am now finishing The Idiot, by Dostoyevsky, at long last.   I only got here in time to vote, and I am happy to report that the public library levy in our city and county PASSED!

I was off-line longer than I expected to be, because some squirrel(s) chewed through the cables, and the phone repairmen didn't get here until today.
