I think that gentleman reads the Cliff Notes every single month instead of reading the books. And yet, he obviously likes talking about the plots! I thought it was a good discussion regardless. And I do look forward to some day revisiting Bleak House.

And good luck on the James Joyce! I do think a trip to Dublin will be required when you finish :)


Kidneys, eh? Well that's a bit scary but the other part I would love. I did receive your parcel and thank you!! Such lovely souvenirs of Dublin and Mr. Joyce. I really hope someday I'll get there. Sigh.


Great reading selections Lisa... hoping the Ulysses assistance parcel I sent has arrived! And you HAVE to go to Dublin for Bloomsday when you have finished the book, it's tradition ... breakfast at the Gresham Hotel for kidneys and the readings, brilliant . I went last year and had the best time.
