    Don't do George's Marvellous Medicine - your son might get ideas

    There is a disclaimer at the beginning, though, just in case: "Warning to Readers: Do not try to make George's Marvellous Medicine yourselves at home. It could be dangerous."


    Rick Mayall's reading in the old Jackanory series is great, by the way

    Oh I'm sure I'd give my son ideas all by myself anyway

    Continuing the Complete Chronicles of Conan, I finished "The God in the Bowl" yesterday and today started with "The Black Stranger", the last of REH's "longer" (more than 30 pages) Conan stories.

    Oh my god...this is a real book. I eagerly await its arrival in the mail.

    The Whale: A Love Story by Mark Beauregard

    In the summer of 1850, Herman Melville finds himself hounded by creditors and afraid his writing career might be coming to an end—his last three novels have been commercial failures and the critics have turned against him. In despair, Melville takes his family for a vacation to his cousin’s farm in the Berkshires, where he meets Nathaniel Hawthorne at a picnic—and his life turns upside down.
    Edit: The internet lied to me. Behold the real Hawthorne and Melville.

    Hawthorne(L) and a beardless Melville(R)
    Is that a new photo made up to look like an old one? I only ask because those two are not Hawthorne and Melville.

    I had the same thought, but I can only find the photo in these two articles about Melville and Hawthorne:

    http://www.awb.com/dailydose/?p=2184

    The guy on the right does look like a beardless, short-haired Melville. I don't know! I'm not a detective!

    The guy is also balding, which wasn't the case with Melville. He had a thick mane of hair all of his life. I suspect the photo was created to appear to have been made during the mid-19th-century. Not that it really matters either way.

    I don't know how some of you are able to read so much. If I finish two books in a month I am proud of myself. haha

    Heh. It helps that 1) I can read fast (yet still absorb what I'm reading) and 2) I'm my own boss.
