While I didn't particularly enjoy this book the other times I've read it, I decided to try again.

... Especially since I just became eligible and received the BARD Reader from the Texas State Talking Book Program. http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/tbp/nlsbard.html

I'm still not enjoying the book, probably because I have a little bit of prudishness. Let me tell you, reading such casual use of "The N-Word" just doesn't sit right with me. *HEARING* it is making it incredibly hard for me to convince myself that it is worth slogging through the rest of the book. I will let you know what I have decided...
