It's been 30 years since it was published, and I read it in the early 90's. Giving it a re-read to see how it holds up.

A dog's purpose.  I have a stack of other books en Que.  I also listen to audio books through my library while walking the dog and driving to work .  My current audio book is the Late Show (michael connelly).    Getting rid of cable forced me to read more.  in the immortal words of Cosmo Kramer, "I'm out there Jerry, and I'm loving every minute of it!"

If only I had the guts to cut the cable.

Just take the plunge.  Spectrum bought out Time Warner in my area.  My bill went up $100 for no reason at all so I decided it was time.  I have disney plus that includes Hulu and EsPN plus, Prime video as part of my prime subscription and  netflix because TMobile pays for it as well as an indoor digital antenna which gets about 25 local channels crystal clear and I probably have more content to watch now than I did with cable.  It also has allowed me (forced maybe) to go to the library and read more, I have been renting dvds from the library and generally just have a world more content at my fingertips.  It has taken a bit of getting used to as a sports fan (including Syracuse sports) but hey, Im saving $170 per month!  $2000 per year.  Airfare for the family vacation, or alternatively lots of shaving 'necessities'. Plus I look much smarter reading a book at the coffee shop than just surfing on my phone.

No way.  Those are all on network tv.

I usually prefer reading nonfiction.  This is what I'm currently reading.

Many of these books rank amongst favourites.  Adore Dostoyevsky but painful to read given the Western decline and accompanying cruelty/decadence/cupidity....  Anyway, at the moment, finishing a reread of Maugham's Razor's Edge (probably the only person remaining on Earth still a fan of his style.  Ha now that IS quite the coincidence, eh?
