reading is fun-damental

Brief Proust update

I've made it to page 350 in The Guermantes Way. Collapse ) The book is just reading really smoothly these days and I'm only turning to my Harry Dresden when I'm too tired to process big sentences. Alan De Botton's How Proust Can Change Your Life is, as I expected, making it all richer, except when it occasionally slips a plot point. Don't want to be guilty of that myself!

The ballet was great, booklectic was great company, but I've REALLY got to get some sleep. I can't wait to see more! (bathtubgin, can we go see some other ballet later, maybe Carlos Acosta & Friends at Sadler's Wells?)
