    Ah-ha! A fellow Joyce fan! Good on you sir. Ulysses is tough. Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow is tougher (though not as good). Finnegan's Wake is the toughest book ever written (and the best
    ;D).

    I had a class in high school where we spent a whole trimester on Ulysses. Also love Finnegan's Wake.

    Re: Books you might want to read?

    ive realized reading loses its joy when you are in college..all the books i read are ones that i am forced to read, therefore, usually making them unenjoyable..hopefully when im done school, i can start to appreciate reading for enjoyment again lol
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Re: Books you might want to read?

    Olsen_10 try "Where The Red Fern Grows" by Wilson Rawls.
    Billy, Old Dan & Little Ann. A boy and his two dogs. Pretty much a classic tale about loyalty and friendship. Not just between humans, but more importantly, between dogs. The confrontation between Billy, Rubin, Old Dan and Old Blue affected me deeply when I 1st read it at about 7 years old. My 9 year old daughter is reading it now, kinda apprehensive. Anyone that has already read it knows what's coming. Glad she's reading it though. It's a quick read, nothing you can't stroll thru in a couple of days.

    I have a chunk of Finnegan's wake in an anthology of his, I admit I haven't read it yet though...


    You must have gone to quite a high school, because there are very few people in my class who could get anything out of Ulysses.
    Hell, I doubt my teacher could get anything out of it...

    I like Tom Clancy, but sometimes I just can't take all the detail, the man just understands the military too well.

    I'm more in to history myelf.
