Hmm, this could be candidate for a book to listen to while walking. I love a book with a solid dose of satire.

Crusie and Weiner are my two favorite authors to listen to while exercising. They make me forget what I'm doing.

I tried to read Foer. I really did. Then I decided I'd rather go to the dentist. For a root canal. I'd go for Netherland for sure. I'll leap on the Hemingway bandwagon, although I keep forcing myself to read him in case I'm missing a gem. I'd argue against Lahiri, love every word she's written. Some of the others I've never heard of, so if they are overrated, they are not overpopular.

I was in B&N and they already had a kiosk right by the front door. They were also demonstrating the Nook as a music player (had speakers hooked up to it), had cool leather covers on display, and showed how you could download free books from websites like Project Gutenberg. They are giving Amazon a run for their money.

It all sounds great, but what format books can you read on it? Still only AMZN's proprietary format? I don't think so.

Fantastic. I love the cake in the face, and the casual flip of the teacup. Go girls!

I started reading it within hours after seeing her at the Miami Book Fair. Shame on you Connie for waiting so long. The book will make a great movie, it's such a good story, as long as the producers don't wreck it. But with Waltz, I'm with you, it's a must-see.

I think I might be in the "both" camp (even though I don't have an e-reader yet). I can imagine if I was traveling a lot I would appreciate not having to carry lots of books and never having to worry about running out of reading material on a long flight. This is where the Kindle and Nook beat out the iPad, with long battery life, so no fear of running out of juice too.

That should have been the first Roth you read I guess, having maligned him so in the past...
