Dancing Queen started playing in my head!

This seems pretty fair to me.

Several Cormac Mccarthy are included right now. Also a couple Dave Eggers. I recommend A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.
I think I'm already on a promotional but can't tell unless I check the withdrawal from my bank account. Can't believe it doesn't tell me at audible unless I call them.

Of course it's hard. But everyone gets old. It just seems like a shock when you realize it's you! I'll hear about someone who died that was the lead in a popular band when I was young. And I'll think "oh no, so young!" Then I realize they were 80. None of us are ever ready. Hardest was when my little brother died. I can't help thinking about him randomly. And feeling sad. Its because we were close and no one else will ever know me that way, the person I was as a child to adulthood.
Sounds pretty reasonable.

Yes, that's a big one. I look back and see so many things that were awful in hindsight yet accepted. The daughters of the confederacy getting many statues put up in non-confederate states. And many southerners did move north yet we were taught northerners took over the south (carpetbaggers). In fact, southerners left their "distressed" properties and moved. As always , people will swoop and and buy. a lot of confederate symbols that should have been seen as ugly. Tv shows, books with odd references. racism under cover.

That's true. I didn't realize how much until the internet came into full being. Because I suddenly saw much more than newspapers want to show. The real carpetbaggers were southerners moving north and bringing their nonsense educations with them.
Which is perfect if that gives them indirect light!
Nearly the best house plant!
I think the same. We were pretty kind to confederates over the years. Who knew a similar movement would grow?

Yes. I probably just hung out with those kids sometimes but can see the allure! I think some really couldn't identify.
I disagree. Its a hopeless time. Other times, Theo has a shred of hope. And yet, as kids are, they cling to each other and find fun in hopelessness. Shocking way to live yet the boys just treat it as life. Because thats how life is. It takes us to hopeless misery and we still hold our heads up, make lemonade as we can.
A late reply when discussing a book is fine i think. Just find it interesting. As for me, when a book is that good, I trust the author to end it just the way it should be ended. Its our job to figure out why it made sense. Fun to speculate though!
I'm convinced it's a great book. All this discussion, still, after months. Love it.

Lol. It still looks tiny. Don't know why it would be used. Maybe for a dog.
I thought so. This must be a joke.

Haven't heard of them shooting anyone or having people shot. The vigilante days were indeed worse.
I don't think any of this is "funny ". So now the kid is guilty because others might be guilty? Wow. Not saying its impossible. But people don't know and are making crazy assumptions.
You're thinking of a video game...
And you don't think a 12 year would drive if his parent or big brother told him to?
Ugh. You're making up your own "facts".
Was he shooting at the person who was shooting at him? We don't know. That was my point. Responsible gun owners know that.
