So many books I love on here. So many that I read over and over and over. I'm not kidding about 1984. We have 4 copies and several are hi-lighted like crazy. Every time I read it I pick a different color and hi-light what is significant to me at the time. Its interesting to see what spoke to me in the past. And after the smirking chimp came to office it became difficult to read. Too close to home.
