1984 was one of the most powerful books I've ever read, or reread, or rereread.

I just ordered a childhood favorite of mine from Amazon "Sideways Arithmetic From Wayside School" by Louis Sachar.

Any other fans out there?

Just arrived! Let the fun begin!

Fun fact #347: This is one sentence that when translated to Hebrew, not only doesn't it lose any of it's meaning, it comes out better: "כל בעלי-החיים שווים, אך ישנם בעלי-חיים השווים יותר".
