    Which is you favorite NFL team?

    The Broncos had to endure a year or two of Bubby as well. Definitely not the best of times.

    I've heard Motherless Brooklyn is nothing like FOS. Maybe worth a try?

    What did you think of it, Anamenesis? I'm part way through and so far, so good. Very eclectic!

    Nature Literature

    As far as natural beauty and environmental titles go, I would second the Desert Solitaire suggestion although some sections I enjoyed more than others. There are several books that would fall somewhat under the man vs. nature category. Follow The River by James Alexander Thom is about a woman...
