Just got done reading I Am Legend. If the movie is like the book, I'll pass. But then again, Hollywood changes books so much, it probably won't even be anything like the book. I'm still in the process of reading Anam Cara, A Book of Celtic Wisdom. And, after school gets back in session, my classes will be reading Esperanza Rising and To Kill A Mockingbird.

Is it just me, or does it seem that books written now are less challenging and thought provoking than those written 10-20+ years ago?

Yes it seems the farther back you go the more challenging they are to read. The Rosetta Stone was really tough trying to figure out the hieroglyphics and the pages were so thick ;)
