my little book club is reading bruce johnson's "firmament" now. i read it on a my kobo a few weeks ago and couldn't grasp hold of what i was reading (one of the problems with an e-reader is that it's hard to page back to refresh your memory or reread a favourite passage). and i read it quickly and with lots of company around. not the way to read this book.
so this week i got hold of a hard (soft) copy and took it down to the cabin and read each evening by lamplight. the only sound was the waves. this is the way to read this book. it's delicious words.
