Great book lists!!!

You mentioned For Whom the Bell Tolls which is one of my favorites although I also am a big fan of A Farewell tO arms. So much so that if my unborn child was a boy, I wanted to name him Henry.

Man, this makes me want to go to southern spain, drink shitloads of absinthe and eat eggs with mustard on them.

Dean says he can always tell when I've been reading Hemmingway because I will start asking for cheese and booze....lol.
