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.

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