Book Review: Mr. Bun Bun Goes to the Circus

Good book. Pretty pictures.

This review is in honor of Michael Gorman, the head of the ALA who believes that "blog people" are not in "the habit of sustained reading of complex texts". Of course, one of the authors thats very popular with bloggers (not blog people, Mr. Research) is Neal Stephenson. His book "Cryptonomicon" comes to 1168 pages, and is loaded with math, cryptography, and World War II history. There are three more books in the series, each of which is a similar length, but much more complex.

Is that a ":-0" of laughter, a ":-0" of annoyance, or a ":-0" of shock?
My :-0 are always laughter ... I never thought of them being shock or annoyance. I'll translate:
Thanks for adding me to your blogroll, Mike!
He said that? God love him. I'll match number of pages read in a week with him any time he'd like.
