Book I of Montaigne's 'Essais', for my comparative literature seminar.
And I'm simultaneously rereading Jeffrey Eugenides' 'The Virgin Suicides', to counteract the Montaigne...

rereading Jeffrey Eugenides' 'The Virgin Suicides
Did anyone else feel like they could feel the use of the theasurs when they were reading that? There would be a few lines in the novel with about five words you'd usually find under the same entry.

/strangeness.

It's late, I'm tired, I might be talking crap.

I just finished 'The Age of Innocence' (Wharton) and 'Murder on the Orient Express' (Christie) which, by the way, has a superb ending. I just started to read 'Until I Find You' by John Irving, and it's already got me hooked on it. Irving's just such a good strory teller.

I don't believe it! I've just launched into a new Stephen King and found that I've read it before. (Still read half of it at a sitting though.)

Yeah, that's what I thought about it too. I really enjoyed it in a very uncomfortable way...which was probably what Nabokov intended.

Is it all about Latin then? Twould be good to read if it is

'Boy: Tales of Childhood', R. Dahl. Tis a good read. I could probably recite it to you, as well.
T'is indeed about Latin, a light hearted approach to learning it. Nice mixture of grammar history and culture, really enjoyed it!

I just finished 'The Righteous Men' by Sam Bourne... apparently a well-written DaVinci Code... but that's not my opinion as I haven't read that. Anyways, it's a nice read, gripping and has an interesting plotline, just to get me back into reading again I recommend it...

Just started reading 'Cymbeline' by Shakespeare at the same time as reading 'A Tale of Two Cities' by Dickens. Both are great so far!
