New Post!

It's been forever, hasn't it? I've been re-reading John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany, and it's almost as much fun as the first time. I'm noticing more of the foreshadowing this time around, since I've already read to the end. The unfortunate thing is that I saw a movie based upon the book (loosely...it's called Simon Birch) about five years ago, so even on the first reading I knew how the book was, on a basic level, going to end. I won't spoil that here. I'd recommend this book...I could probably even lend it to someone, once I'm done with this read-through.

I also have read the first few pages of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but have to pick it up again, probably next week sometime, and finish it. Owen Meany distracted me.
