I don't read often, but I've had much time on trains and planes in the last two weeks to put back a few hundred pages. Today I finished "The Catcher in the Rye" which from the start made me think of rjpower. On my trip I read "Snowcrash" and greatly enjoyed it. People around me will soon be suffering me refering to the Metaverse and Uncle Enzo for the next several weeks. Which would have been hip, of course, when the book came out 10+ years ago, but I'm not quite that quick. wealhtheow, your image sprang to mind whenever I read about Y.T. She's cool -- you should be flattered.
