  1. Bauer…where the f*ck did this selection come from? Well done.

  2. So, bookworms, rum-wranglers and malt maniacs…

    How is this one stacking up? I have yet to start (likely tomorrow), but am curious as to how well you’re plodding through.

  3. Oh boy. Where to start with this one. I imagine some searing discussions will fall out from this one. The more I read, the more angles there are to tackle here. This book sits funny with me. I was quite a left-wing loudmouth in my university days. And now…well…don’t forget I gave one of my daughters ‘Ayn’ as a middle name. And be forewarned…Robert is busily dog-earing pages in his copy.

    I will be plowing through the end of this one just in time for Friday night.

    Look forward to seeing all my friends.

  4. Finished. I feel dirty now. Ayn Rand is rolling in her grave.

  5. It was all just a dream, buddy.
