    Marcia and I have started Huckleberry Finn as our next reading-aloud project. I've put a hold on the local library's copy of Knausgaard's My Struggle, Book 4, which isn't yet available in US trade paperback form.

    I've always believed that Poe was a greatly under-rated American writer, perhaps because he had been type-cast by "The Raven" and by his so-called "detective" stories genre and unusual themes (e.g. "Fall of House of Usher") that his sheer brilliance with language (I considered him a musician with words) is overlooked.

    There is a word (in poetry?) where the words are used as sounds; Poe used his poetic gifts that way in prose so be on the especial lookout for his use of the sounds of words; his prose I believe can be read aloud for effect.

    Feel free to write your impressions and reactions on the "Sunday Morning in New York" thread in TechIMO Community.

    We finished Great Expectations. Tonight we start on The Maltese Falcon. I also finally finished Dairmaid MacCulloch's Thomas Cranmer. I'm also reading Paul McAuley's Fairyland.

    Yesterday, I was at SPX 2015. It's been here for years and years, but this was the first time I've gone. I bought and read Bill Griffith's Invisible Ink, and I'm reading Derf Backderf's My Friend Dahmer. Also bought Jon Rosenberg's Scenes from a Multiverse Book 2: Business Animals, Keith Knight's They Shoot Black People, Don't They?, and Matt Bors's Life Begins at Incorporation, all five autographed.

    Just finished reading Blue-Collar Journal, by John R. Coleman. Fascinating.

    Reading The Phoenix Guards, Steven Brust's fantasy on a theme from Dumas père.

    Marcia and I are reading aloud to each other from Great Expectations, two chapters or so a night.
