Just seeing what's up. Anybody read Catch-22? It's one of the books I have to read this semester. Sounds good though

It was assigned reading in my 60s literature class in college...whether I read it or not is another question.

Did he also write "Something Happened?" I think THAT was the one we read and I tried to read Catch 22 afterwards...

Does that answer your question? NO. LOL

You can recognize a good book when 1) it's been included on banned lists, 2) its title has become a cultural maxim, 3) its message lives. As Heller said, ?The only freedom we really have is the freedom to say no.? Go Yossarian!

You can also recognize a good book by the illustrations.

I personally judge books by their covers. It's one area in which I am truly consistent.

Hmmm...judging books by illustrations, covers, and content. Hmmm, I usually use all three. I've seen interesting covers but the contents sucks.

It's been quite awhile since I've seen illustrations in my books though. I like that idea. Think there's a chance I'll get to read a picture book this year?

Oh, we had an interesting assignment today: we had a lesson on profanity. I thought our professor was nuts, but she was serious. Turned out to be a lot of fun and I learned a lot.

I read books with illustrations every day... a well illustrated book is a delight. btw the content in Bob the Builder books is almost non existent...

LOL Well Taylar has become a very active eader And loves to pick new books out @ the library, then we read them together (I read, she turns pages) ... Anyway.... a good kids books with lots of fun colors and messages is books by Todd Parr. They're so cute We like "The Mommy Book" and "The Okay Book" and "This is My Hair"
Now, me, I have been on a true crime kick recently and read "House of Secrets" which was really... whew. And I'm waiting on the library reserve list for Patricia Cornwell's "Portrait of a Killer". So there's a few things to try out
Hugs,
Tartie </font>
