    I'm still trying to get my hands on "Fire And Fury". I'm told everywhere I go that it's sold out, backordered, and that as soon as anyone gets any copies, they're all sold within minutes. I don't want the Kindle version.

    I thought I wanted to read it as well until I heard from liberal, moderate AND conservative voices that it's riddled with typos and inaccuracies. Let us know if and when you get your hands on one.

    Every stinkin' day, the shithole proves that everything in the book describes him to a "T", with the "i"s dotted! From everything i've heard from progressives and moderates, and psychologists, it's quite accurate. The only people who don't like it and say it's fake news is shithole's supporters.

    Prince: The Man and His Music by Matt Thorne

    I received this as a gift about two weeks after he died and am finally going for it. It's a 500+ page exploration of the work. No idle gossip here, just a solid, exhaustive artistic appraisal. Loving it.

    The Man Booker Prize-winning novel loosely based on the assassination attempt on Bob Marley in 1976--16 pages in and I'm utterly spellbound.

    I just finished reading The Lost Supreme [[I cried several times, my baby Flo deserved SO MUCH better from so many people and from life itself) and Red Azealia by Anchee Min. I am also reading The Last Empress [[about the empress dowager Cixi), a book about Anne Boelyn and another about how to pick up weed and say really horrible things about people's mothers in Mandarin. It's very useful.

    LOL! Welcome to The Forum! Yes, The Lost Supreme is certainly a tearjerker.

    How did so many bad people hurt her? Why did they get away with it? Why would they e even want to hurt someone so sweet and hurt her so badly? I hope the pos who raped her is rotting in hell.
