    I very much want to read IQ84, but haven't felt like I had enough time to take the plunge until recently. I have 5 books arriving in the mail otherwise I'd take the plunge now.

    I'm just saying you had ten years. It could have been you spouting off on NPR.

    This sounds a lot like the biological model of sociality, where we are treated as 'cells' or active microelements of...

    More importantly, I totally had a little metaphorical crush on Little_Miss_1565 for a while.

    In retrospect I reckon good taste on my part.

    Never had one myself. Am I doing it wrong? Should I invest in one of these magic wands I keep hearing about?

    The Tiger's Wife.

    Brilliant book by Tea Obreht, with a purposeful geographical vagueness, but I'm pretty sure anyone who's familiar with European history can give a general idea as to the idea of...
