Caught between introducing my son to The Wombles and finishing off anything half-read I have lying around, because The Asylum... is coming up and will be commanding my undivided attention.

A Swedish biography of William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army (Fanny Ekenstierna, William Booth, Frälsningsarméns skapare - en livsbild) that I picked off a table where people can exchange books for a friend who likes biographies but, as it turned out, doesn't read Swedish. It offers a glimpse into Victorian attitudes to religion and is interesting not least because most of the societal problems Booth was dealing with at the end of the 19th century are still with us today.

I am finally getting a chance to read some Ancient Greek comedy:  Frogs and other plays / Aristophanes ; translated with an introduction and notes by Stephen Halliwell.  Are other Ancient Greek comedy writers as vulgar as Aristophanes was?

Very little comedy has survived, but satire did become a lot tamer over time, as government became more conservative.

You might want to take a look at multiple translations. It's becoming fashionable for translators to put a very personal stamp on Greek plays. I'm not saying anything to condemn Halliwell. But someone like Lattimore has a better reputation for stolid accuracy.

The comedies could definitely be vulgar.

Indeed.  I thought Clouds was tolerable because the plot was funny. Women at the Thesmophoria had too much for me.  Frogs was not too bad, but I had trouble seeing as much humor in it as others would.

It's here, it's visually gorgeous, and it's absolutely loaded with puzzles that unlock hidden goodies. This is not going to be a quick or easy read, but I love it already.

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2), by George R.R. Martin

I wasn't going to continue reading this series, but here I am. I didn't hate the first book, it just seemed too long and uneventful, and the prospect of reading 29,403 more pages of the same didn't really have much appeal. But, as I re-watched the last season of GoT to prep for the upcoming season, and watched the recent Alt Shift X vids, I found myself wanting to give the books another shot.

You're assuming it's not an act. "Honesty" has become a synonym for offense, and the way it's done is very trendy and predictable.

Read the book. He's considerably well-mannered and one of the things he complains about people nowadays is lack of politeness.

Finished Book I : The Plague of Doves which was kind of surreal and difficult to follow.  The plague of doves was a device and a foil.  An actual plague and the Catholics go out to drive them off with prayers and Holy Water.  The doves are symbolic of the white skinned invaders as well.

Probably one that I can re read for better comprehension.

It may be that my reading for pleasure muscles are atrophied.

Reading The Roundhouse now.  Another old story of life on the Rez, about a Native woman who is brutally raped and nearly killed, her son telling the story as he is coming of age.  Love these coming of age stories when a writer can remember the freshness and raw detail of first impressions in life.   Many stories within stories, rich with Ojibwe lore and custom, mention of the old ways, the meaning of things.

Really enjoying this one.  The characters live and breathe through the young boy.

There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14.12
