Me too, blue. The books are much better, although I do like watching "The Thorn Birds" because some of it was filmed in one of my favorite places in the world, Kauai.

Which reminds me - I love "Hawaii" by James Michener.

I love to re-read Harpo Marx's autobiography "Harpo Speaks". He was truly a kick in the pants, so before his time.

'The Lost Continent' and 'A Walk In The Woods' by Bill Bryson. I absolutely love his books but they are my two favourites.
