Sobriquet 42.18

The following post was originally published on 5/17/08. Yeah, so I'm still reading  Diary of a Bad Year  and I'm still really enjoying it. My plan to read "traditionally," however, may soon have to be scrapped. You see, whereas each sub-text fragment would end neatly with a period on each page of the first few chapters of the novel, the pattern does not continue into the middle of the book, almost forcing the reader to read each section before returning to another. I also wrote a few more pages on  The Master of Petersburg , which I had not expected to have gotten done. And I finished Matheson's  I Am Legend . And now I am going to bed. For tomorrow : Read and/or write.
