    After a couple days of not reading any book, today I will start No Country For Old Men. Cormac McCarthy is steadily becoming one of my favorite novelists, so I'm very eager to check out the novel. I remember watching the movie some years ago and liking it. It looked like a close adaptation of the source material, so everything indicates that I will enjoy the book.

    Couldn't get through All The Pretty Horses. Too sad. No Country is one of my favourite movies ever.

    Finished Pawn of Prophecy as part of my reread of The Belgariad and The Malloreon, for the first time since my teens. It is both a glorious and an horrific experience

    I have hundreds of books that I've acquired over the years and I don't think I've read half of them. It's hard to decide just what to read next. My nephew (who has a high I.Q. and can read a book a day) told me he's reading VANITY FAIR. And I have a copy of that I stole off my sister when we were teen-agers, but never got around to reading. So I've picked up that to read next.

    I had the same problem as you, Jim, but I have been catching up with my reading to the point I have read almost all of the books in my personal library now.

    As for Vanity Fair, it's a great book!

I'm glad I gave the series a chance.
    I feel like the Egyptian stuff is so underrated.

    Just started Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman because a friend of mine does not stop begging me to watch the miniseries and I really don't want to without reading the book first. I'm really enjoying it so far.

    An interesting read for me, especially as it is a lot older than most books I've read on the subject of transgender people.
