I am reading "A Million little Pieces" by James Frey. I was cringing while reading it last night. When a book speaks to me like that, it's a keeper.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip

El Presidente of VJ

regalame una sonrisita con sabor a viento

tu eres mi vitamina del pecho mi fibra

tu eres todo lo que me equilibra,

un balance, lo que me conplementa

un masajito con sabor a menta,

Deutsch: Du machst das richtig

Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Maybe you're reading it despite all the hoop-la about it a few years ago? I bought it when it first came out. Having dealt with addictive behaviours for years, I found some of it didn't add up. Before I finished it, the truth came out. I'm sorry I supported this author's endeavour to milk people out of money. I detest liars. On the other hand, he's since written some fiction, and it's very good. He's a story teller, that's for sure!

Yeah, I remember the whole Oprah scandel. I am reading it now cause I got it for a quarter at a recent yard sale.

I didn't go into it thinking it was a true tale, so that part is not bothering me. If it's stuff that didnt' really happen to him, he is a wonderful story teller. Very descriptive.

Have you ever read "A Piece of Cake" by Cupcake Brown? It's supposed to be a true tale. I have my doubts. Seriously, some of it is so far out there, I have trouble believing it. It is a great tale, nonetheless.

In no particular order:

Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

I loved "The Road". Surreal.

I liked I am Legend too. Although, a little hard to get through.

The more you love, the more you lose a part of yourself, yet you don't become less of who you are;

you end up being complete with your loved ones."

There's a movie adaptation coming out soon with Viggo Mortenson.

I Am Legend has continually disappointed whenever its been adapted into a feature film. The film-makers always ####### it up by changing the ending.
