Next up

I just started reading The Arabian Nights: The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night by Richard Burton. Good book so far, but my word, it is long.  I've been reading for days and have barely made a dent.

So far my takeaway is this: Wives are not to be trusted.  As soon as you leave them alone, they'll have an affair (usually with a black dude).  And if you want to distract someone, tell them a story, within a story, within a story, within a story...

Also, if you fall in love with someone who is more lovely and beautiful than anyone else you've ever seen, it's going to end badly.  Very, very badly.

I can't wait until I have time to read things again. Things besides Chinese Medicine texts.

I'm mostly reading on the train and at the gym.
