Currently Reading:

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Over the past several weeks I've been looking at lists of novels - the Reader's Choice 100 best novels, the NYT 100 best novels, the 100 Most Influential Novels, etc. 1984 appears prominently on all, and as I have not yet read it, I figured it was high time that I do so. Thus far it seems to be a more detailed version of Animal Farm, except with people instead of pigs. I'm hoping to do much reading this summer.

Last week's Comment article on summer reading was really good: http://www.wrf.ca/comment/article.cfm?ID=249

Mm, that's actually one of the things that got me looking at those lists!
