Fine. Enjoying the last few weeks before school starts up again. (Still need to watch some of the documentaries I've picked for my anthro class.) How are you?
Thank you.
Hi Cassandra - I only just bought "The Sense of Sight" on Friday and haven't had the chance to read it; but I was browsing it at the store and picked it up because I found many of the (mostly personal) observations on paintings quite interesting. Berger is a very famous art critic and essayist, so if you are interested in art history/criticism, you might like the book.
You're welcome, Cassandra!

I'm reading Georgette Heyer's "The Corinthian": bored Regency aristocrat being harangued into marriage by his family assists a young thing who, dressed as a boy, is running away from a marriage she herself is being forced into. Sixty pages in, meh. It's early Heyer (so not as funny or gracefully written as most), I'm tired of runaway heroines, and of her various types of heroines I don't like the childlike ingenues with the sparkling blue eyes. The saving grace so far is the bored hero, who nicely sardonic.

Georgette Heyer's books (Regency romances with a strong comedy-of-manners element) are coming back into print and I'm re-reading them as they do. There are a couple of more in my to-read stacks. The non-fiction options at the moment are Carl Stephenson's "Mediaeval Feudalism" and Umberto Eco's "History of Beauty."

I just bought some bargain books: "Hindi English Visual Dictionary" (I have a thing about Bollywood), "What Southern Women Know About Flirting" (I loathe this writer's work, but I collect portrayals of Southernness), "The Ghost Map" (a book about the 1850s cholera epidemic), "Black Talk" (a c.2000 dictionary of African American speech), and "The Hound of Rowan" (a kid's fantasy set in modern times but linked to medieval Irish myth).
The honor is mine, madame - my amity yields easily to anyone with the DSM-IV seated at her right hand.
