Of GEB or Metamagical Themas? I have both again :D

As well as The Origins of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, to complete the trio of books to be sententious about.

Not as much as you would think. He caught it when I threw it at him and refuses to give it back. But I'm gonna send Donald Trump to negotiate for its release.

Yes, things could get very interesting with you and books. :P

I haven't got your GEB though. Haven't even got my own copy, sadly enough.

I'm confused. It doesn't really matter, but...

What the hell are you talking about then? Is it Metamagical Themas you have my copy of? Is this code?

Yes, I was referring to your first sentence, which concerned Metamagical. I think. But I'm not reading anything at the moment. Because I don't.

I mostly read. I hardly watch tv or movies at all.

Although I'm mostly rereading these days.

I can't seem to find any authors I like :x

I may give him or her a try. I've certainly heard a lot about him/her. But I'm really looking for something funny and snarky, and not too dry. I got the impression that Wodehouse was all clever in a snooty kind of way, so I might not be in the mood for that at the moment.

I've been reading hard-boiled stuff, some Michael Creighton.

But probably I'll buy Tides of Narnia and play that.
