    So, how's the reading going? Do you like it? I had also decided to just go ahead and read 'Anne' once I'm done with my current read.

    Only just started it. Currently reading The Deerslayer by J Fenimore Cooper. Want to finish that too. I like Hesse's style though. I enjoyed Steppenwolf, and the discussion we had afterwards was very enjoyable and illuminating.

    Well, I've started On The Road. Has anyone else?

    'bout halfway through. I figured it was time for a re-read of this - been a few years.
    I wrote a poem on a leaf and it blew away...
