The Pesthouse by Jim Craceif you have read the road, you dont really need to read this. this was to be jim craces third strike from me. and i dont dislike jim crace, its just i wasnt moved by either quarantine or being dead. his style is not embracing - it has the same detached, clinical style as hustvedt, which does not cuddle me, as a reader. i need literary slankets that cover all my parts and transport me (but leaving my arms free to wave about)(did i go on about slankets in another review... i feel like i have. they fascinate me) he isnt a bad writer, by any stretch, this is just another example of Books That Arent For Me. it takes place in a blighted america, many generations removed from an unexplained event that destroyed everything. what is left struggles to survive and find love and meaning and all the things people usually struggle to find in post-apocalyptic fiction. the best part is the quasi-religious anti-metal community that evolved around the helpless gentlemen, who are old men who do not use their hands because of their beliefs and live in an ark that supports pilgrims waiting for boats to take them to a better place, they expect. these weak-armed, metal-shunning people were the most interesting characters in the book, but it was only an interlude in the story, unfortunately. for some reason, they reminded me of a joke from electric company magazine when i was a tot: where does admiral ackbar keep his armies?? huh?? wanna guess?? IN HIS SLEEEEEVIES!!! oh, the tears of laughter...so thats my review. i think me and jim crace are over now. like a junior high school boyfriend, i barely remember him.

She is Super Why has improved a lot over the past few years. The first season it only used upper case letters as I recall. Now they do a whole bunch with lower case, which is great. For more on the Whole Language controversy, please see my post at:. It arrived in the mail yesterday. It really does spoon-feed parents how to teach… a three year old.
I dumped a bunch of 3. Mostly DOS but a few early Windows mixed in. I still have 20 or so to go. I also have a handful of ISOs that I have not listed here. I realize these titles are unlikely to excite many of you, but they have value as PC history and I could not let them go into the trash. Preschool Fun x Software Toolworks Disk 1 of 4.
