Nope, it's MrsDarwin, despite the attribution. All the computers in the house hate me, it seems. I won't bore you with my electronic woes, but suffice it to say that the nice fellow at the Apple store said that repairing the keyboard of my laptop would cost $750. Thanks, William!

There are plenty of memes that want to know all about your book history and your all-time greats and your grand ambitions, but let's focus on something more revealing: the books you're actually reading now, or just read, or are about to read. Let's call it The Immediate Book Meme.
1. What book are you reading now?
...and nothing else, because I'm not starting a new book until I've finished packing for vacation
2. What book did you just finish?
The Pauline Epistles in the new testament
Tristram Shandy! At last!
Winds of War, by Herman Wouk
3. What do you plan to read next?
I'm packing my bag, and I'm bringing:
War and Remembrance (both volumes), by Herman Wouk
The Marble Faun, by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Leisure: The Basis of Culture, by Josef Pieper
After vacation (because our library branch does not have these books in hardcopy, what gives?):
The Dubliners, by James Joyce
The novels of Flann O'Brien
Exodus, picking up with the law chapters where I left off to finish the New Testament.
Captains Courageous by Rudyard Kipling as our read-aloud.
4. What book do you keep meaning to finish?
I FINISHED TRISTRAM SHANDY, WHAT DO YOU WANT
5. What book do you keep meaning to start?
Nothing hangs over me just at the moment. I'm probably in denial.6. What is your current reading trend?
Let's be honest: Facebook. God help me, it's really hot in this house, and my brain has turned to mush.
