Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

I network, socially...

Find me on these networks, friend me, or don't.


Digg! DIGG

How are thangs out in reader-land? I'm exhausted after a day of erranding and struggling with a sexist pharmacist and fascist insurance company--but that's a post for another day. I'm hoping to go out and eat some delicious Korean food with the men in my life and then relax and watch the season finale of the horrid SNL in a pleasant stupor.

Now that I'm done with Sula, my next projects are Glenn Greenwald's book on the right wing and the media, a scandinavian novel which I must review for Publishers Weekly, and possibly Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict if I have time.
Then I have to pick a Big Reading Project (Moby Dick? War and Peace? Proust? Danielle Steele?) for my trip to France, and I still haven't tackled Unaccustomed Earth yet. Argh!

So much to read, never enough time to read it all.



  1. I'm re-reading Jane Eyre for the first time in probably five years (I read it once when I was pretty young and it went right over my head, have hated it since then) and I actually kind of... love it this time around. I have a brief blog post up detailing my first few thoughts. I'm about halfway through now. So good.

  2. Oh no! So the best thing about Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict is learning how Jane et al. dealt with being on the rag (I wish I could call in to work and say I'm "indisposed"). Otherwise, it's not too fab.

    My fave JA adaptation is A Visit to Highbury, by Joan Austen-Leigh, JA's great-great-grandniece (I think). It mimics Miss Austen's vocabulary and develops side characters, which is fun.

    Good luck with War and Peace...
