  1. hey! i just read a patchwork planet a few books back. i haven't done much anne tyler, but it was pretty okay.
    what is wrong with your coworker? didn't mark twain say something along the (higly paraphrased) lines of "never underappreciate idiots. but for them the rest of us wouldn't look so good"? this woman is making you positively glow...and it shouldn't be legal to work in a library with that attitude!

  5. Just so you know, I posted the conversion story...
    The only thing I dislike about Christopher Reeve is that he was all about killing someone else so he wouldn't be stuck in his wheelchair (embryonic stem cell research, which has failed miserably at providing new meds and methods - unlike adult stem cell research which has more than proved itself). I might be more interested in a bio on his wife. I'm always impressed by people who stick to their vows. I'd be interested in Hilary Clinton's bio if I weren't so jaded that I suspect she stuck w/Bubba as a political move...
    There's a reason why I only read St. bios...
    I decided I wanted to clarify this post a bit more before I had a buncha hate comments on my blog...
    I don't think that Christopher Reeve was evil or that he was thinking, "My life is so much more valuable than their lives!" I'm sure he was much like most pro-abortionists - stuck in this mentality where the baby isn't a person unless the mother chooses for it to be - or the mentality where, well, the kid's dead already, might as well put it's body to use... Which is horridly wrong because it provides one more "reason" why we shouldn't get rid of abortion...
    Which is why I don't like March of Dimes...
    I would think, however, that an autobio on Reeve might be pretty darn interesting all things considered...

  10. Clack,
    You need to keep me updated on your readings more often. I always love knowing what everyone else is reading, so spit it out!

    My co-worker makes me feel like a rocket scientist and a saint. What more could I ask for, really? lol
