February 4, 2015, Wednesday morning -- Reading William Somerset Maugham

In the Mission District, enjoying a cup of coffee on a break from work
He is reading The Moon and Sixpence, by William Somerset Maugham.  It's based on the life of the painter, Gauguin.

Four months ago he read Maugham's Of Human Bondage, which is a semi-autobiographical account of the author's life, and has been on a Maugham kick ever since. He's read about 40 of his books so far.
The minute I walk away from a reader, I always have at least another 5 questions, in this case, where did you find this beautiful, old edition of the book? at 40 books, is this one of the last ones left to read? what will you read when you finish Maugham? what other authors do you like?  have you binge-read other authors?
