I was wondering. 795 is a local exchange in my town... quite different area code, ha.

Well, call nostalgia or trying to get back to roots or what you like, but I'm rereading - The Hobbit. Great book. It'd be thrown out of any self-respecting literature class.

I'm not so sure about that. It might get tossed out of a self-righteous postmodern literature class, but Tolkien was a good writer. He helped on one particular translation of the Bible with the poetic parts (Psalms plus some other parts, I think). Can't remember offhand which one, though. IIRC, it's been approved by the Catholic Church for individual members to use in Bible study, but not for use in Mass. Anybody know?

That sounds like the Revised Standard Version, or maybe the Knox.

The web is a wonderful thing. It was the Jerusalem Bible (which is approved for use in the US, from what I've been told). See:

Approved for use? You get thrown out of church if you show up with a renegade bible?

That's the trouble with self-respecting literature classes. It was a great book.

Approved for use == allowed to be used as the lectionary (readings for Mass).
That's not the same thing as being allowed to read privately, you can read pretty much any version of the Bible you want for that.

I finished ANGELA'S ASHES: wonderful and fascinating. Classic Irish storytelling style. While there is plenty of hardship, bigotry and small-mindedness to portray (the world's cursed with it, after all), I note that McCourt never says ill of the Catholic Faith himself. There are examples from his life (it's the all-true memoir of growing up in Limerick poor and sick) of abuse by members of the faith, members of the church, and the like, but never the faith itself. The same goes for the Irish, and Ireland, and its history.
Most of the rancor and venom is from the mouths of the ignorant and bitter, though the opinion of the Christian Brothers' School as a stuck-up place where the priests get their exercise beating up the children is pretty general.
FYI, friends of mine from Ireland told me their mothers were stricken with the sad choice of sending their sons to a place reknowned for abuse - even today, fifty years later - or fearing they'd lose their religion. And two Christian Brothers schools in atlantic Canada were closed after dozens of lawsuits and criminal convictions for beatings and sexual abuse about a decade ago; the lawsuits still threaten to bankrupt other church properties to this day. I will mention that neither McCourt nor my friends made any mention of sexual abuse in the Dublin or Limerick CB schools.
I go into this detail because I questioned, in a post in Movies), whether the book would be considered anti-catholic or anti-Irish; After finishing it, I do not think so. It is a tale of tested faith and human survival, a sad indictment of The Curse of the Drink, The Curse of the Uselessness, and The Curse of More Children than Brains.

Finally went to the new Atlantic Book Warehouse in the Ellisburg Shopping Center. Pretty good. It seems to have a little less of the remaindered books, and more "regular" books. They do have good discounts on all, though.

Has anyone here looked through a complete 13 volume set of Frazer's _Golden Bough_? My library has several different versions of the abridged single volume version (both early and late 20th century illustrated versions); but I've yet to see any of the 1930's era 'finished' work IRL.

Comparisons?

Still reading Demian -- taking much too long, it's a short book. Too many other things to do, I'm afraid -- and reading gets the cut. Not fair or, in the long run, wise...
