Moby Dick is one of a very small handful of books that I started and couldn't finish. It seems to be that way with a lot of people.

Just finished The Robots of Dawn, my first Asimov, after being told he was dense and too dry for pure entertainment reading I am thoroughly pleased to announce that I loved it, a great bloody book and I'll definitely continue to read more.

I ROBOT ...really really liked it and flowed so nice been reading too many books lately that are a chore
