Change of format

Despite creating this blog for the specific quest of reading the Modern Library list in its entirety, I am slowly accepting that I will never be able to discipline myself enough to just follow the list.

So instead of letting this blog languish and die, I'm going to open it up to writing about any and all books I'm reading, meaning to read, attempting to read or swearing off reading.

Right now I'm reading John L. Hess' MY TIMES: A MEMOIR OF DISSENT. I love those Gray Lady books. I just finished Benjamin Kunkel's INDECISION, which is definitely one of my top books of 2005. I didn't even want to like it, but somewhere around page 175 I couldn't believe it's brilliance. Believe the hype! What are you reading?
