Not quite a "Table-Talk"
1. I keep thinking this movie I'm semi-watching is called Terror Twilight. No! It's Tropic Thunder!
2. A big part of what I have enjoyed about the growth over the past several years of the world of book blogs is the way they open literary conversation to include books that are not new, bringing in (depending on the blogger) everything from classics to ephemera. In an environment where, for obvious reasons, the official organs of book culture are forever preoccupied with the new, it's wonderful to see that a big swathe of people is perpetually reading from a wide range of eras and styles, that our shared frame of reference really is much larger than one might think at first blush. —Levi's comment on Confessions
