Waiting for the bus and reading The Secret History, by Donna Tartt. It's about a group of kids who get together to read the classics but wind up committing a murder.

A book people should read, if they haven't already, is The Invisible Man, by Ralph Ellison. She's read it several times, the first time when she was in the eighth grade. It's an important book about race relations.

Recently she read Lady Chatterley's Lover, by D.H. Lawrence and Ulysses, by James Joyce.

Somehow I managed to get through Joyce's Ulysses. I'm, however, stuck in the first chapter of his next tome Finnegans Wake.

The Secret History is a fascinating novel. It revived my interest in classical literature again (thankfully, it didn't lead to murder).
