I read compulsively, eclectically and fannishly.

Currently reading

Quand un roi perd la France (Les rois maudits, #7)
Maurice Druon
George Steiner
The Captive & The Fugitive
Marcel Proust, D.J. Enright, Terence Kilmartin, C.K. Scott Moncrieff
The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye - A.S. Byatt The stories in this collection are wonderful, even if this edition is unnecessarily typeset with wide margins and overgenerous linespacing to make the book look longer than it is, and reprinting the two stories from [b:Possession|41219|Possession|A.S. Byatt|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1311978255s/41219.jpg|2246190] is cheating (and they were better where they were originally, in context). "The Story of the Eldest Princess" is a perfect fairy story, especially if you have ever been a bookish eldest daughter, and the titular novella is superb.
