    titles!  Congrats on reading Ulysses. James Joyce has never, um, been my cup of tea.

    "Quasars and Quarks" could be the title of a book in its own right, don't you think? :)

    Hey, I also read Linda Goodman's Sun Signs and enjoyed it.  We should compare notes some time.

    •  You know Joyce invented the word "quark"? (3+ / 0-)

      Rather, it was lifted from Joyce. He "invented", in Finnegans Wake, a dictionary-full of words.

      I read Ulysses in a class by a man who had written a book on it, and was also a very engaging teacher. So he did the heavy lifting, and I got to just read.

      Sun Signs is an easy, enjoyable, and very colorful read. We will chat more about many things, this among them :~)
