    Yep. Outlander. I hear that's a very enjoyable series of books. I have the first one in my book shelf, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

    See, Paulie... that's what makes this world so wonderful. To each their own.

    I love difference. I embrace it!
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    I hear that, Hazy. I know my opinions aren't universally shared. The Notebook has a very devoted following, and many of the moms in my wife's Book Club just loved it. It just didn't work for me.

    It's like The Lord of the Rings trilogy. One of the best-loved book series ever, and I just couldn't get through 'em. I labored through all the plot devices and flimsy characters in The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. Then about 30 or 40 pages into The Two Towers, I just snapped the book shut and put it back on the shelf. When my wife asked where it went the next morning, I told her, "Life's too short."

    I'm with you on that Paulie. Love the movies, but the books are TOO much for me.

    Yeah, the movies are great.

    BTW, we were "with you" at exactly the same moment in time, but in separate threads. How weird is that?

    That's funny. Me thinks I spend too much time here.

    The book Bunnicula would be a great children's movie. It ( and its sequels) were fun reads when I was little. I would love to see what Pixar would do with it.

    I think "Song of Solomon" and "The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrison would be great movies. Not to Oprah: Get on that!

    That would be a great movie, although I would worry that the book is too deep to be translated into a movie without losing a good deal of its message...
