I loved Chimera So Much when I devoured it uncritically in middle school. But it was a bit icky the last time I tried to reread it. Is this a spontaneous first read for you, or a book club or reread?

Holy shit that's a lot of reading! What 's the start date on the list?

Are you just now switching to a Mac? I've been using Macs since 1984 and would be happy to answer questions and make complicated analogies (in hopes of making things clearer).
