Dear @Camazotz Automat  I am looking for a like new or gently used issue of the Necronomicon. Only a first issue penned by Abdul Alhazred himself will do. I seemed to have left mine at Lestat's while enjoying an iced vanilla café. And I was right in the middle of a particularly interesting incantation

I did leave a tip and an appropriate salutation for the absconder

Look, Chief, you can't go off half-cocked looking for
vengeance against a fish. That shark isn't evil. It's not
a murderer. It's just obeying its own instincts. Trying to
get retribution against a fish is crazy.

17) VENUS ON THE HALF-SHELL (1974/ 1975)

by Kilgore Trout

I was fated to read this book when it was cited by @juan, on page 5 / comment 71 of this topic.

"Synchronicity cannot be denied, nor damned. But it can often be worn as a pinback button. "
- Kilgore Trout, from his rare and almost impossible to find novel 2BR02B.

Kinship With All Life

This book actually tells you how to communicate with a common housefly amongst almost everything else on the planet.  Wayne Green whom you may remember was a guest several times over on Art's show highly recommended it.  Years ago I ordered it and it really is quite intriguing.

@ 157 pages - you'll knock this one back real quick.

That looks good to me.  I'm enjoying accumulating several interesting suggestions from this thread as I continue on with my goal of 52 books in 2021.

Oh god, now I'll probably be seeing ads for the Snorge's snack book for the rest of the year.

Hahaha, that reminds me of an interview Snoors once did.  It turned out the guest had known his aunt fairly well.  The guest pronounced her name Kara-goola, while Noory pronounced it Ka-rig-you-luh.

During the interview, they both pronounced her name their way several times each, but neither commented about the way the other was pronouncing it...

That is subtle talk-radio gold, and approaches platinum.

And the longer the standoff / impasse lasts, the more precious the metal becomes.

Trout Fishing In America by Richard Brautigan.

Richard was trying to thumb his way to a fishing spot but nobody would stop to give him a ride.  This went on for hours on end, under a hot broiling sun.

"The sun was like a huge fifty-cent piece that someone had
poured kerosene on and then had lit with a match and said,
"Here, hold this while I go get a newspaper, " and put the
coin in my hand, but never came back."

19) PILLARS OF THE EARTH (1989)

by Ken Follett

I picked this book to read because it was cited by @PolkaDot on page 1 / comment 14 of this topic.



My thoughts:

(Digression Alert)

This is a large idea book - in scope &  theme & page count.

Think DUNE epic minus the sandworms - plus waaaaay more attention to architecture. 

(I learned that little summation trick from my good friend Joe Bob Briggs.)

Pillars of the Earth is ~a tad~ heavy "for me wee Scottish brain," so I will pace myself accordingly, while concurrently reading other books at different speeds, which is typical; no matter how many times I attempt to go cryo-turkey & read but one tome start to finish at a time, I always end up reading a few at a time.

You say "one tome at a," I say "tomes  ought to."***

( *** I "boldly" and  preternaturally quote a posthumous Tom(e) Robbins novel before His demise & prior to the novel's publication! You read it here first.

My apologies & sincere regret, Mr. Robbins. Obviously, I can't be trusted, even on the astral plane. :(   

In my defense, "Tom" (cackling madly), it was just such Tomatoes of temptation that did hang humanity from their stations on that Tree of Knowledge.

How could I be so differently designed than Atom & Evil as to not succumb to such precariously hanging fruit as quoting your fabulous pun?)

Back to my reading habits of naked nuns:

(evil grin)

I prefer having something at claw to read no matter my mood, current attention span, or claw sharpness.

At 973 pages, PILLARS will last a while & will gradually assume the position of engine in the perpetual book train.

The last time I read Follet was in the early 80s! Eye of the Needle.

That retractable stiletto to the eye scene "still haunts-etto" me.

Now, back to Dick & Jane:

See Spot run.

(Things don't look so good for that infernal bouncing tomato red ball.)

It is "fortunate" that  the ball is a Calvinist & believes in Dog's mysterious ways!

(penetrating fang clamp)

I amuse myself here.

End of digression.
