Still no actual update, too distracted by more online enabled reading.
Book Mooch Thanks to A's new keeper of a boyfriend! Now all those books I compulsively rescue from the recycling at work can make someone's day AND get me books I actually want. Love.
Daily Lit Thanks Inder, for yet another way to maximize my reading. Now my compulsive checking of my google reader will uncover daily helpings of classic lit. Democracy in America (Perhaps the most quotable work in American history, but who wants to read the whole thing? A page a day of De Toucqueville is PLEnty. He may have fit two whole sentences into the first installment. Which means there's about 408 to go.) and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (I'm finally over the childhood teasing enough to pick this one up. It's delightful so far. I'll check in again in 88 days.)
Since my phone died I've been leaving my computer on nights as an alarm, and I figured I'd put it to good use downloading. Looking for torrents to add to the queue I found I can easily (cough, totally legally, cough) download both the print version and UNABRIDGED AUDIO of the Economist every week! You know how I like my audiobooks with an accent. Here's to hearing Brits read snotty letters to the editor and snide comments about America and popular trends.
