And we're reading...

I'm still working on The Arabian Nights.  Whoa Nelly, this is going to take a while.  So I decided to put it aside for a bit and read (at long last) Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe.  I've seen and read the play that was based on the book, so I figured I could knock out the book pretty quickly while I was out of town last week.

Nope.  This sucker, while not as long as The Arabian Nights, is still pretty damn long.  I'm only a little over a third of the way through the book.  Plus, Stowe had the unfortunately tendency to write in dialect.  Makes for a tough slog.

After I get through these two, I'm doing nothing but short stories for a while.  And maybe catch up with some magazines.
