I'm a big Jane Austen fan, and I'm in the middle of "Death at Pemberley", P.D. James' pastiche of P&P...several years after the events of P&P, Wickham is accused of murder.

Yeah I'd seen the exchange before, but it's nice to know the guy had a sense of humor about it.

Also, it's funny that the NFL used to be the kind of rinky dink operation that would have a 28 year old as general counsel of one of their teams.

Read that one last year as part of the 50-books-challenge and I really liked it. Have to admit I am a bit of a romantic. You too obviously.

Why? One of Conrad's best books.

Just arrived The Patriarch The Remarkable Life and Turbulent Times of Joseph P Kennedy by David Nasaw.

Listened to an hour long interview with the author last week and decided that it would be worth acquiring that and that fact that my ancestors belong to the Irish Catholic Diaspora.

Heart of dearkness is like a storm of dictionary pages smacking your head incessantly. But in a good way.

Just finished Norwegian Wood by Murakami. Such a beautiful, haunting story. Either rereading The Great Gatbsy or moving onto Dance Dance Dance next.

Just finished reading The World Lit Only by Fire by William Manchester. I thoroughly enjoyed it but was saddened to learn that despite being a bestseller (probably should've been a warning sign) it's not very respected for accuracy.

Moving on, I've just started Wild Muir

I'd vote for Nostromo. As for H of D, I always urge people reading it to follow it up with Chinua Achebe's scathing critique (in addition to, of course, Apocalypse Now).
