    Book a Minute

    I was looking up info on a book that Paulie recommended ( Lucifers Hammer) and came across this website for those who don't quite have time to read the whole Book. A whole group of books are listed.

    You have to read the Jurassic Park one

    LOL, that website is great! I loved the version on "The Andromeda Strain." Cop out, definitely!

    Those are great! Thanks, Eny!
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Thanks guys - from the classics page - War & Peace

    War and Peace
    By Leo Tolstoy
    Ultra-Condensed by Kris Samaras

    History controls everything we do, so there is no point in observing individual actions. Let's examine the individual actions of over 500 characters at great length.

    THE END

    Whew that saved a lot of time...

    That was so hilarious! I'm reading the Robin Hobb Farseer trilogy and they were right on. Insert frustrated noise because I've already read 90% of the trilogy and I could have just gone there.

    I love this site. I always try to in corporate it into my humorous interpretations for speech and debate! My favorite would have to be Animal Farm and The Odyssey.

    That saved A LOT of time. That was probably what Anna said about War and Peace.

    What a fun little site Eny!

    I've always planned on reading Dune, but never gotten around to it.

    I'm lots smarter than you are. I challenge you to understand even one of my paragraphs!

    Gee, Frank Herbert is smart. I can't even find the plot.

    OK, well...Hmmm...

    And I had unwittingly started with "God Emperor of Dune" first. The most esoteric of them all. *shudders violently*
