~*~ The Book Barn ~*~
Reppin': NC Wyeth Death Cult
The Book Barn is always overflowing with words about words and people who make words form coherent stories. Right now there are words about Vonnegut, Faulkner, Ann Rice, Elmore Leonard, Neal Stephenson and subjects like B.R. Myers's "A Reader's Manifesto", crappy fantasy novels, romance novels plus much, much more! Stop by and pinch off a steaming post of words about words today.

What is the most depressing book you've ever read?

The disappointment you felt after finishing Fight Club because you realized it was just a book and not real doesn't really apply here. Me, I still can't believe that God punished the Quimbys by turning off their crockpot like that.

An open ended thread without clearly defined criteria that is rapidly becoming the equivalent of two Kevin Smith fans screaming pop culture minutae at each other but here we have Coleridge and Ferlinghetti replacing the "Enterprise verse a Star Destroyer" debate.

~*~ FYAD ~*~
"FYAD is the cool place to hang out. You can find most of the cool people there. In FYAD you can just chill and do whatever and totally relax. "Take it easy" is the FYAD motto, for example, that's how laid back it is there. Show up if you want to have a good time. Another good reason to show up is if you want to hang out with friends." - C. Cardigan
