    Heart of Darkness is quite depressing, I cannot tolerate reading it. Conrad is great literature but he's a take or leave
    author I chose to leave and let others sort it all out.
     
    Fading Fast and dubpynchon like this.

    The only book / story I've reread lately is Mark Twain's The Innocents Abroad. I was lucky enough to buy both those Running Press editions in about 1981, the two huge paperbacks, still have them.

    I have to 2nd (3rd) ;-) L.F. Celine. Have not read anything of his recently; and as mentioned I also have to be in the right mood. But that guy is hilariously funny. That Gallic sense of humor reminds me of my grandmother, (born in Paris).

    I've noticed I'm doing a lot less reading than I used to do when I was younger. It seems like such a hassle now, my eyes get too tired etc. Need to get LASIK done. Reading helps me keep perspective on the insanity out there, it's a quality of life issue for me.

    Tally ho! Ferguson!
