I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.

Currently reading

Three Sisters, Three Queens (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels)
Philippa Gregory
A Book of Luminous Things: An International Anthology of Poetry
Czesław Miłosz
The Gay Science: with a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs
Walter Kaufmann, Friedrich Nietzsche
A Kierkegaard Anthology
Robert W. Bretall
The Guns of August
Barbara W. Tuchman

Arrrrgh

Maps and Legends - Michael Chabon

Can't decide if the book designer of this edition was a little bit crazy, a sadist, or just really bad at his or her job.

 

What's the problem? The headers at the top of each page with the author's name and book title and - more importantly - the page numbers at the bottom of the page are in the smallest type I've ever seen. What is that? Four point font? 

 

I know I'm on the verge of middle-aged eyesight, but this is ridiculous.
