Do you read?

Speaker 1:
Do you read?
Speaker 2:
Not very much no. No. I don’t have the patience to read.
Speaker 1:
See, I do that to make myself go to sleep at night.
Speaker 2:
Yeah. Oh my mom and dad read all the time.
Speaker 1:
You saw ‘Field Of the Dreams’ right? A long time ago.
Speaker 2:
Yeah sure did.
Speaker 1:
So I was reading the book and it’s called Shoeless Joe.
Speaker 2:
Oh really.
Speaker 1:
It was so wonderful and then I was, um, I decided well I like this author, so I got a, uh book of his; short stories and that’s been real good.
Speaker 2:
Who’s the…who’s the author?
Speaker 1:
Don’t, don’t ask me. ‘The Ghost of Shoeless Joe’ was the name of the book.
Speaker 2:
Oh. Shoeless Joe, was it like the movie?
Speaker 1:
Yes quite a, quite a bit but you know in the movie the guy was black.
Speaker 2:
Okay right.
Speaker 1:
He wasn’t in the book. That’s one difference. There really wasn’t a lot of difference.
Speaker 2:
I didn’t uh see, I never even heard that there was a book tied in with that movie.
