Have I really been doing nothing for almost two hours now? I found a good article (by AS Byatt, natch) on Harry Potter, in which she says "part of the reason I read Tolkien when I'm ill is that there is an almost total absence of sexuality in his world, which is restful." This got me to Google a referenced writer in the story, which led me to a fine listing of books from someone whose tastes are similar to mine, which should provide me with cherry picking for several weeks and solve my "lack of reading material" problem (of course, I could just pick up a book I have already started, but that would be too simple, wouldn't it? And of course I had my call from Q*** about not working. However, I must get off line now and go do something real, no matter how dull it is to not be on the computer reading the top 25 most emailed articles off of the New York Times -- like "Bush Claim on Iraq Had Flawed Origin, White House Says" (ooh, now there's a surprise) or "Opposites Attract? Not in Real Life." I'm addicted!
