There's no Adventures In The Screen Trade thread, but feel free to start one and once I get around to reading it, I will add to it myself.

It's a surprisingly good and quick read... to tell one story, Goldman has to tell two others and they're quick and gripping and funny you're still clear on everything that's happening.  And the stories are funny.  It's a pleasant read for movie fans, not just movie writers.  And it hasn't been updated since it's release in 1983.

I'm in the final stretch of "Zealot" ... the season change is throwing my reading schedule off.  I have a GIANT book (actually three books put together) called "School's Out Forever" that's like a post-apocolyptic thing set at a boarding school.  The first sentence reads:

Quote from: School's Out Forever
I celebrated my fifteenth birthday by burying my headmaster and emptying my bladder on the freshly turned earth. Best present a boy could have.

I got Tough Sh*t for my sister for Christmas, but I read it all first, mostly in a single day.  A very awesome read.

Far and Away: A Prize Every Time - Neil Peart (May 2011)



Got this for Christmas and just **** it open for the first chapter. I already know I'm going to like it. I've loved all his previous books and this appears to not to be the exception.

Neil Peart (Drummer/Percussionist for Rush) has penning lyrics for the band since the beginning and writing books on his adventures, typically separate from the Bands activities. He also been writing a blog to catalog his thoughts. Far and Away is a collection of those blog posts. I never read the blog, mostly because I just found it not very pleasant to read long paragraphs of text on a computer screen monitor.

This book will more than compensate for that loss.
