Well I guess I have some reading to do. I have the book 1984 here. I will admit to finding it boring. I know that isn't very literate of me. But this book is hard for me to read somehow. Now its not as bad as the Russian novels, they are really tough for me. I put in italics the ones where I have seen the movie. Some of which I do not plan to read.
