I saw that book at Barnes and Noble the other day. It was bound to look like a block of swiss cheese, and the print on the inside was missing the important parts where the holes were put.

This was to give you an idea of what it's like to deal with the Female brain. Even with an instruction manual you will never fully understand how it works.

I've quit trying, life is too short to spend that much energy on something that will never happen.


Don't get me wrong, I love Women. I just don't try to figure them out. I just appreciate them as they are.

Right now no books. Just a stack of old Men's Health Magazines.

I thought I was back in 1975.




Currently, I'm reading Anthony Trollope's Barchester Towers. Church politics may not sound edge-of-your-seat stuff, and indeed it isn't, but it's all beautifully observed, masterfully characterised and stylishly written, and that's all you need really.

I love the victorians.

I just finished "Drood" By: Dan Simmons, which BTB was kind enough to loan to me. It is a really long book (which I love), very engrossing! I would recommend it. It's about Charles Dickens and his life...... and vampires.......

Just started: "Everything is Illuminated" by Jonathan Safran Foer. Evidently it was made into a movie in 2005 which I've never seen. The book is about an American Jewish man who goes to Eastern Europe to research his family history -- he employs two local men as translators in his journey. I just started it 2 days ago, and am already halfway done. This book is making me lose sleep.

Finally completed Dune through Dune : Chapterhouse. Thoroughly impressed.

Currently re-reading Tailchaser's Song as I'm in need of some light reading.

Ah, now I've never read anything by him. I like early twentieth centrury American writers, but I somehow missed him out. I especially like Sinclair Lewis.

Work has just got rid of their entire Millenium Edition library. For free. I had to limit myself out of consideration for others, and space at home, but I've still ended up with a whole bunch of beautiful, pristine hardback classics, such as:

Buddenbrooks Thomas Mann
A recherche du temps perdu (sp?) Marcel Proust
Fear and trembling Soren Keirkegaard
The Radetzky March Joseph Roth

They were all on my reading list.

Free books. Happy days.

Ignore the Awkward.: How the Cholesterol Myths Are Kept Alive [Paperback]
Uffe Ravnskov

Summary:

Quote:
The cholesterol campaign is the greatest medical scandal in modern time. If you have read the author's previous books ´The Cholesteol Myths´ (out of print) or 'Fat and Cholesterol are GOOD for You', you should know that for certain. For instance, according to more than 25 scientific studies old people with high cholesterol live the longest. Another shocking fact is that the authors of a recent American study of more than 130,000 patients with acute myocardial infarction found that on average, their cholesterol was lower than normally. Their finding has already been confirmed by others. What they also found was that three years later, mortality was twice as high among those whose cholesterol was the lowest. Their conclusion? We must lower cholesterol even more! But there is much, much more. The author's aim with this book is to show how prominent scientists have turned white into black by ignoring all conflicting observations; by twisting and exaggerating trivial findings; by citing studies with opposing results in a way to make them look supportive; and by ignoring or scorning the work of critical scientists. Those who have not read his previous books may not quite understand the width of these misleading processes. He has therefore included a short and simplified review of the most obvious contradictions to the cholesterol hypothesis. At the end he presents what he and his colleague Kilmer McCully think is the real cause, here told in a more simple way than in his previous book.
