I will take that on board, although after being underwhelmed by The Great Gatsby, I'd say I'll take a while to get around to reading that - too many books on the waiting list at the moment!
So many books, so little time

And now that I've commented, I may as well add that I finished Dubliners , which had one of the most beautfiul quotes I've ever read in it. From the story "The Dead":
"His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.”
Sigh. Lovely.

And I've now moved onto A Clash of Kings
