Rather have the book... found it used in mint condition.

Found a copy of Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter.

Sounds a bit like a weird one, since the tagline is, "a metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the spirit of Lewis Carroll". 8O

Has anybody here read this? Loved it or hated it?

I read that over thirty years ago when it was first published. I highly recommend as it is a sort of mathematical-philosophical hybrid.

You know, I should re-read it, now that I have three more decades experience behind me and a LOT more knowledge and practical experience of Baroque music (which I actively sing, now). Great read.

CCF Colonialism in Northern Saskatchewan: Battling Parish Priests, Bootleggers, and Fur Sharks, by David Quiring - for academic and professional reasons. The Atlantis series by Bob Mayer for brain candy. Finished Saint Odd by Dean Koontz.....really disappointed in its ending. a REAL letdown.

Just finished re-reading Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay. Undoubtedly one of Canada's finest writers. Beautiful prose and intriguing plots and world building.

Re-reading "Lamb; the Gospel According To Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal" by Christopher Moore. Probably for about the 5th time.

Hilarious and insightful. Should be required reading for all religious people.

Right now it's The Martian by Andy Weir.
I'm just saying because it's really sciencey and some of you peeps might like it. :D

Got a stack of Yukoner Magazines from a friend who's uncle had been a subscriber and had passed away. Fascinating tales of Dawson City and the travails of life in the Yukon.

A friend of mine is the mayor of Dawson City, or more appropriately the younger brother of a friend. He just won re-election for a second term
