    Ummm Bucky,

    Do you kinda get the feeling that maybe no one here gives a rat's a55 about cracking a b..b..book? It took me over a Month but I finally finished the one about 'Dick, Jane, and Spot'. I would have gotten thru it much sooner but the pictures were very confusing. And what was all the commotion about 'See Spot run". Why was he running? Did somebody throw a stick? Was it suppertime?

    I'm gonna try 'Jack and Jill' next. I hear they are pretty hot! I'll probably have to hide it under the mattress. Are there pictures? Woo Woo!!

    Maybe you ought to check out the 'Einstein' thread. That was a learning curvature if I ever saw one!!

    Yup..Yup..Yup, hed

    Sir,

    I think that it is beneath (as in under) us itlecktuals to make mock of Large Becky's admirable attempts to further his edjoocashun. Without books how wud wee be able to hold doors open, whack flying things, or fill up those shelves. Enough of them also make a good cheese press. I go thru books like a Bobby Lee at a spare ribs cookout. Try 'Time To Hunt' by Steven Hunter'.

    Then there's the one about 'Sally, Dick, and Jane! OMG!! A menage 'a trois!!

    I think they use flailed flesh in the Gutenburgers that is then washed down w/the Gutenbier. You can then have a box of Gutenplenty whilst watching the telly.

    Here's a search site that I found some time ago, searches Gutenberg and a bunch of other similar sites, well over 20,000
    http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/

    I just can't wait until Gutenberg has all the audio books they're looking to put up, listen while you surf!

    That's a great idea Notok (nice link too), but you'd better be careful posting here......the heathens (Ed, Prim et al) just love to ridicule us academic types! :D :D ;)

    I represent that remark about Guten ed. :) He was voted the class bookend when he was in the 4th Grade and it is still all beneath him.
