Just finished Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - I just started reading Joyce last year after a visit to Dublin where I picked up an Everyman’s Library copy of The Dubliners which I enjoyed immensely. I struggled a bit with Portrait but it may be that I wasn’t giving it the attention it deserved (I usually have 2-3 books going at the same time, reading 30-40 pages and then picking up the next one). It may do me some good to read a bit background about the book and then come back to it to appreciate it further. Meanwhile, my Everyman’s copy of Ulysses is sitting on the bookshelf in my bedroom looking daunting and daring me to pick it up and begin. 

Just started One Hundred Years of Solitude

Just added to my books Fever Pitch
