I just finished reading 2001 A Space Odyssey, I think for the third time. I like the book a lot but I really I love the movie. The first time I read it was maybe 30 years ago. I still have the paperback I read that first time. I have paperbacks even from my teen years still. Now I'm digging back again and I'm going to re-read The Brothers Karamazov, also for the third time. That is also going back some, 30 or 35 years or even more since I first read it. I still have that paperback but I decided to get a new copy for this go-round. I was so excited when I first ordered it from Amazon that I could hardly wait for it to arrive. I don't know why but I really wanted to read that book again. I believe that I've read most of Dostoeyevsky's novels and short stories, he's a favourite of mine. So the day it arrived in the mail box I was a happy man.
