I am very glad you are liking it. Enjoy... Do you have any recommendations?
I saw that documentary about a year ago! I think Johnny Depp was going to be in the movie? It did look like it was going to be a great movie. Anyway, just about every major author I have read (that came after Cervantes) has praised "Don Quixote"; that is really why I want to read it.

I haven't read many current authors, but one that I have discovered recently that I would highly recommend to you is Nick Tosches. His book "In the Hand of Dante" is mind-blowing, as is "The Last Opium Den". The former is an amazing work of fiction that also contains the most vehement indictment that I have every read on today's editors and publishing world. The latter is a small book of non-fiction that really took me by surprise. Tosches is one of the few major literary figures of today.
I have not yet read "Streets That Smell of Dying Roses". I bought a used copy off the internet specifically because of what I had read about it, but it is still in my "to read" category. I love Dostoevsky. He is one of my favorite authors and he also wrote my favorite novel of all time "The Brothers Karamazov". "Notes from the Underground" is a close 2nd. I was wondering if you have read "Don Quixote" yet. I have it on my list to read but I know that it will take a while so I am hesitant on beginning...
I love your library. Very interesting...
