Not sure what that means Steve.

I did notice Owen was reading a book i was discussing with one of our very FOXed up members last night.

I just recently finished Terry Pratchett's latest Discworld book, Making Money. It was far from the best of the series, but it had some cool parts. Really, though, it seems like pretty much all of the books in that series now are politically oriented. I'd like to see more of the wizards and Death in upcoming volumes.

nathaniel philbrick's "heart of the sea". a documentary on the true event on which moby dick is based on. in 1820, a whaling ship got attacked and sunk by a whale. the crew (~25 people) cruised the pacific for some months in tiny rescue boats and ended up eating each other. 8 or so survived, and the book is based on their accounts. thrilling, and well written.

My copy's actually different from that, I just took the picture of Amazon. I think the stock front cover for C20 German authors is a Paul Klee, which is what my copy has. Mmm, second-hand.

I'm reading a version of the Epic of Gilgamesh that I bought at a church book sale for a dime.

okay i was overexaggerating. it was a nice book, just all the killing. and at the end when he's telling his "other story" and he's talking about the chef ripping off the guy's face and eating him.

In time, I think the end fades away, and mostly you just remember all the days at sea with Richard Parker, and the bits at the beginning about zoos and religion. I'd pretty much put the weird parts out of mind, but now that you remind me, I guess they were kind of disturbing.

Did you read it or listen to the audiobook? I did the audiobook, which was amazing.
