So after I finish re-reading Gatsby…

re-read Jane Eyre [which has just arrived today, YAY] or take up Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead, which is bound to make me sad?

"I don’t have any regrets, really, except that one. I wanted to write about you, about us, really. Do you know what I mean? I wanted to write about everything, the life we’re having and the lives we might have had. I wanted to write about all the ways we might have died."

Don’t feel bad for me, Tumblr

I’m spending NYE quite productively, at home, alone, making charts of my 2012 reading.

Pie charts are more fun than alcohol. Zeg dat ik het gezegd heb.

Goodreads really needs a “Currently Re-reading” option.

The lack of re-read friendly features is why I deleted my Goodreads. Shelfari is much much better for that, even though, sadly, little interaction is possible there.

Words are wind, they say in Westeros, in Essos, in Sothoros. George R. R. Martin seemed to etch these words in my brain, over and over again. Words are wind. But he’s wrong. Words are not wind, at least not his.
