alice593 - Anything to help my Tuesdays!!!

artistforexploit - Oh, that is one of the reasons I have started locking my bedroom when I am gone -- things keep disappearing - makeup, my t.p. when she has a case of it under her bathroom counter, books, papers, an Arizona Watermelon Tea that I might have just bought, perfumes, etc. Now, she is being more blatant about it... while I am in the room (whether I am awake or sleeping)!!!

I know the feeling, my oldest daughter borrowed my vintage '1984' by Orwell, that was three months ago...

Well, she should know that after all the knowledge you get from it, she will be welcome to read it. It will help your keen mind get even keener. Maybe even improve your tuesdays. lol

Brave New World was a book when I was reading Lady Chatterly's Lover and Lolita.. or Erica Jong's, Fear of Flying.

I dont understand it as class reading material.. perhaps you can explain this to me.

Also, good luck to your daughter as a HISTORY major.. heheh JK

I don't know if this will help but I just googled this:

synopsis brave new world

and came up with a stack of ideas on the book, soooo, if you can't get to the original then at least you can get to substitute of sorts, with maybe some analysis.

Hope that helps.
