Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

I finished reading Jude the Obscure several weeks ago, and I found it a much better read than when I was forced to read Hardy's Return of the Native as a sophomore in college. After finishing the book I rented Jude,the movie, which was not near as good as the book. I also checked out from the Austin library a BBC play adaptation of the book. Although better than the movie, it too was not as good as the book. Enjoy your reading. J.
