    I found it pretentious and overrated myself.
    Today's literature is in sad hands and sorry shape.

    On the contrary I think there is still quite a lot of good literature being written.

    The Blind Side is great, but I'm a big Michael Lewis fan. I'm really interested now to see how Michael Oher's career progresses.

    What do you think? I'm finding it to be somewhat disappointing. It's much more of a straight-up travel narrative than what I was expecting.

    Yeah, it's turning into a travel log. I'm finding it harder to pick up. Especially since I'm getting the baseball jones and picked up a couple baseball books that I'll probably start.

    My buddy is a complete RUSH freak and he didn't get all the way through it either.

    His prose is so rigid, it annoys me sometimes. He has a hard time expressing the pain he's going through, but can go on for pages about the spruce pines that he's riding by. And I really don't need to know what he ordered at every single restaurant he stopped at.

    I'm reading Oscar Peterson's autobiography, A Jazz Odyssey. For those of you who don't know who he is, he is one of the greatest jazz piano players who ever lived, and he's among the select few living jazz legends.
