A Book in Time Saves Mind

     If you click on the title of this posting it will zap you to the website where you can read George Orwell's "1984".  I am probably one of a few priviledged people on the planet who actually read "1984" in the year 1984.  This is a book that is huge fun to read and to then compare to our present times and possible futures.  But what great book to talk about.  I hope our students are still reading such material.  Similarly is a book called "Fahrenheit 451".  I can't recall whether I read this or not and will have to look into it.  This title too comes up in discussions of modern politics.  Comments I have heard cannot decide what the present age most similarly matches to which book.  Anyone have any comments out there?
