Please check that it's available in paperback, list the author and title, and sell the book a little. Thanks!

Was reading some Phillip K. Dick, the first science fiction author to have a book in the "Library of America".

To be honest he holds up pretty well as the many popular movies from his book can attest

Perhaps "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" which became the movie "Blade Runner"

Or my favorite favorite "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldrich".

Thought provoking fascinating deep and detailed some written under the benefits (?) of LSD.

Dick haunts and is memorable.

Books I would like to read:

THE IDIOT by F. Dostoyevsky

LORD OF THE FLIES by W. Golding

THE SCARLET LETTER by N. Hawthorne

HEART OF DARKNESS by J. Conrad

WAR AND PEACE by Tolstoy Although one month may not be enough time, it rates as one of the three best books I have ever read.

The Hemmingway book that the group did NOT read -- is it THE SUN... or FAREWELL... ?-- can't remember.
