Finished Charles D'Ambrosio's very strong collection of stories The Dead Fish Museum. My thoughts on the final story will have to wait for some time in the not-too-distant future. But see my thoughts on the others here, here, here, and here.

Hi - I've popped over from Dewey's blog. Interesting link in your last post about pain. As a chronic pain sufferer, I'm drawn to any new info I can lay my little paws on. I have experienced the referred pain thing, which was relieved by surgery. I was wondering if you were going to say the ability to approximate numbers had to do with referred pain...

Saw you over at C.B.'s and thought I'd pop by. Middlemarch, eh? Good luck with that! :)

Hi Julia, mutual Dewey fan. I've known some numbers to cause pain, usually in math class.

Trish - Middlemarch indeed. It's a tremendous read - want to join us?

I'm very sluggish with Middlemarch, but I manage to read a chapter. I found out I have to take up another course. I need to tune out of blogging and read more.
