I was supposed to read this book 2 years ago. Better late than never. [Jul. 8th, 2003|04:01 pm]

“Why you? Why us for that matter? Why anything? Because this moment simply is. Have you ever seen bugs trapped in amber?”

“Yes.” Billy, in fact, had a paperweight in his office which was a blob of polished amber with three ladybugs embedded in it.

“Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why.”

amazing.

I'll add that to my queue. Not reading consistantly for a few years makes for a very large queue. Fortunately, the subway is helping to shrink it.

Did Vonnegut write 'Breakfast of Champions' too, or is it just of a similar style or genre?

Cool beans. After I finish a few books I've been putting on the backburner for while now, I'll look it up. :)

I've been meaning to read Catch 22 anyway, as I hear about it all the time.

I need to put this 'reading queue' I always talk about on paper.

I finished Slaughter House Five today, and, honestly, I am indifferent towards Vonnegut at this point. He didn't seem bad, but I haven't decided if I like him or not. I blame the embarrassingly little leisure reading I have accomplished over the past few years.
