I only have time to read right before bed, and that allows for around 10 pages or so before I'm dozing off. Takes me forever to finish a fucking book.

its not my only time, but thats usually how i do it. and i'm usually reading multiple books.. but they are usually more of the informational, non-fiction type, so it works.

Is Lance Armstrong the multiwinner of tour de france?

I read an interview...dude is amazing.

I remember something:

 

"i wanna reach 100 years old, lie down in the french fields, filled with sunflowers...and die full of gratitude"

 

if you know his story that shit moves you.

Im looking forward to the new Palahniuk book, as well *edit-to come out on paperback that is, as the latest in the Dune series (sci-fi nerd style, I know) Ive only had the chance to read some computer books on software lately.

yup...he just joined the 5 Tour winner club....all of his in a row.

 

I recommend that book to everyone. He's had an amazing life and struggle with cancer. I especially recommend it if you are close to someone with cancer...it'll help you understand. If you don't like bikes...relax...because like the title says...its not about the bike.

 

"I want to die at a hundered years old, with an American flag on my back and the star of Texas on my helmet, after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour. I want to cross one last finish line as my stud wife and my ten children applaud, and then I want to lie down in a field of those famous French sunflowers and gracefully expire, the perfect contradiction to my once-anticipated poigant early demise."

I have really come to respect him as an athlete and as a person just after reading about some of his accounts, great story, and hes rocking the tour de france for sure, if you reccomend this book I might just have to pick it up.

I used to be able to read a book a day, back in my nerd heyday. Then drugs and alcohol reared their ugly heads, and I found myself with so little time.....
