    I suppose I should one day.  Just to give you an idea of my backlog, I've had Albert Hourani's A History of the Arab Peoples on my bookshelf for over 15 years.  I still haven't read it yet.  (Not good, I know.)  But thanks for the suggestion.

      My reading list is backed up to infinity.

      I don't hate Republicans I just feel better when they're not around.

        ....this one book from the 1990's on the AMA, The Serpent on the Staff (speaking of health care), soon, which is a running joke in Bookflurries that I haven't finished it.  Of course, I'm at the point where I want to pick books to read so that I can try to trade them in at a used bookstore at some point.  Or failing that, I'll register them on Bookcrossing and release them somewhere, where no one will pick them up, given my tastes :) .

        I need to start paying attention to the art house listings for movies to see, although not much has really registered over the summer (did see Up, though, with the 3-D glasses).
