wayback wednesday: torn between two sneakings  
I'm torn between sneaking off outside to growl at the snow like a dog and sneaking off inside somewhere to read more "Cryptonomicon." Bobby Shaftoe is captured by the enemy!!! Nooooooo!!!!

Listening to: Beautiful South - "One God"

Cryptomonicon is a FANTASTIC book from start to finish.

Never could get into his Baroque series tho.

I'm tempted to forcefeed myself the Baroque trilogy in hopes of developing a taste for it. Of course, I also said that about drinking scotch with nothing but a wrinkled nose to show for it.

Maybe if I combine them....

Darn it, spoiler-boy, I'm only on page 26!

I didn't say WHICH enemy!

Besides, didn't you just read 50 books in two months? Given that speed, you should be done with this and working on the prequels!

There are PREQUELS?


Anyway, I'm taking a teeny break from Cryptonomicon because my Booksfree books came in yesterday so I have to read them real fast so I can send them back.

Three of them and each one fatter than the original!

I'm reading this too, but it's such a chore to get through the other 2/3 just to get to the Bobby Shaftoe parts! I understand it's been published as 3 separate books, which tells me it's okay to skim the IT nonsense. I do enjoy some of the Cryptology stuff w/ Waterhouse.

Rally? They published a split version? That's kinda weird because there's a bunch of things foreshadowed in one storyline that only come to fruition in the other storylines.

But yeah, even though I like all three parts, it's all about the Bobby Shaftoe bits.
