Tuesday of the new year
The freethinking of one age is the common sense of the next. -- Matthew Arnold, 'God and the Bible,' 1875 (Read "Dover Beach")

On the book stand
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I'm not sure yet how much I like it; I rather feel as if I'm watching one of Star Trek: Next Generation's episodes of time warps and loops. It's kind of sad, too.
A Series of Unfortunate Events--I'm re-reading these and finding them just as hilarious as the first time. The vocabulary alone is enough to recommend them.
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King: Marveling at how hard it is to take a good book and make a good how helpful it is to have read the book(s) to see the movie...and at how much more layered the book is, than the movie. The appendices along are amazing.
I also must being the book Possession, which our book club is reading this month.
