I did NOT start reading Kerouac’s “The Subterraneans” like I mentioned earlier. While at the library this morning I first found an older copy of “The Stranger” by Albert Camus in the Adult fiction section then located a newer translation on the Young Adult shelves. Finished it by 4:30 this afternoon. Very interesting book. Made me stop and ponder a few things about myself. I’ve often said timing is everything and once again it seems relevant.
In today’s mail another out-of-print novel by Richard Brautigan arrived via paperbackswap.com. The weather is expected to worsen but I have plenty of firewood, homemade cinnamon rolls, iced mocha mix and reading material.
