Per a friends request I'm re-reading my "Freakonomics" book so we can discuss it. I'm half way through (again) and she hasn't even started her copy yet.

Women.

Very interesting book by the way, more so then it sounds.

That sucks that she hasn't started reading her copy yet, especially since it was her idea. Couldn't you subtlety find a way to get her to start reading it?

You can't be subtle with people like her. I've TOLD her to read. So I'm just moving on to another book until she catches up. Don't know what though. Got any ideas?

I have several on hand but at this moment they don't appeal to me.

I probably should read more of the great novels but I generally prefer nonfiction.
But thanks for the suggestion.

Didn't know you prefer nonfiction. I'll keep that in mind if you ever ask for a recommendation again.

I didn't make it clear did I. But I do need to read some of the great novels. I did read several in high school but of course that was years ago.

Have you ever read "A Walk Across America" published in 1979. Excellent book about hitchhiking. One of my oldie but fav's, I lent out my (second) copy and never got it back. It's still available.

No I haven't read "A Walk Across America" and I haven't read many nonfiction books. I think the only ones that are considered nonfiction that I've got on my shelfs are "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and "What is the What." It's been a few years since I read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and I haven't read the other one yet. Hopefully I'll get to it at some point this summer.

Nonfiction is best because it's true!

I don't recall any nonfiction in my high school reading list, only the great novels. That WAS a long time ago, but we did have paper back then.

I know that, but I still haven't read that many. Have you ever read Night by Elie Wiesel guy? That's one that I read fairly recently. It was about the author's time in the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps during World War 2.
