Hey, you gave it a try. Sorry if I steered you down a dead end.

Life is too short to force yourself to read something you don't get at this age.

I enjoyed it but its not for everyone for sure.

I dont usually read fiction but my niece wants me to read Hunger Games next.

We'll see.

That's cool. I read a ton. I've read the Hunger Games trilogy. I liked it a lot. The movie comes out next month. I am going to look at the history of the Atlantic ocean.
Sounds good.

This is the one I read:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303738504575568671386415824.html

Again its not exactly action packed. Sometimes a little hard to follow his long winded prose.

Here is a NYT review of it that is pretty much right on:

But I really enjoyed reading it and learned a lot.

Thanks guys... Will probably skip this one!  

Hunger games sounds cool, thanks for the suggestion.  

I just finished "the art of possibility" by Ben Zander, which was excellent.

Also as stated before, and not at all like the guitar zero book, "the music lesson" by victor Wooten was really quite good.

The jobs book is next though...!

I was cringing when I heard him play LOL. So... is there a difference between bad and stinking?

That would be a weird conversation to listen in on, wouldn't it?! [:D]

I think the difference between bad and stinking is that bad gives you more to work with [:)]. For someone who practiced for months, that was totally pathetic! The worst I've ever heard...
