i've managed to mostly be a waste of protoplasm today. we were up way later than normal (i'm usually in bed by 11, no later than 12, even on the weekends, but didn't crash last night til after 1, and Jeff was up way past that) so we slept really late and i've been feeling even lazier than normal today. we made it out to the grocery store and the library, and i finished Rosemary's Baby, and that's about it. i keep picking up and putting down homework, which probably means i should just give up on it for a bit.

i finally checked Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell; i hadn't been brave enough to tackle its 800 pages until now. maybe if i can get through it, i'll be brave enough to try to tackle Cryptonomicon again.

JS&MN is a much easier read than Cryptonomicon. But for sheer volume, I guess it is good practice. :)

oh, good. i tend to automatically think that anything of that sheer size is going to be a difficult read.

Nope. The only "difficult" part about JS&MN is that in some places, it gets slooooow. The rest of the book is highly entertaining, though.

By your definition I'm a waste of protoplasm *every* day!

I read Cryptonomicon last year and absolutely loved it. Of his books that I've read, it's my favourite. I haven't gotten into his current trilogy, though, so I can't say that it's absolutely the best.

i keep hearing that it's really, really good, so it's definitely on the list. it just didn't take very well the last time i picked it up.
