I’m rereading Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night Half way through Proust’s second book in In search of lost time, which is a bit of a slog I’ll not lie. And almost done with part 2 of a Picasso biography The Picasso biography is great. Tender is better than I remember. I almost read Gatsby again but I have that one practically memorized, glad I grabbed the other.

"How Bizarre" by Simon Grigg. Tells the story of OMC and their hit single from the perspective of a record label rep that set the whole thing up. Makes you realize how many hoops one has to jump through to get a bloody record out, and sheds some light on the frontman Pauly Fuemana. If you think Gallagher brothers are the epitome of being a vagina then read this book.

I also read The Hobbit recently, and am onto Two Towers after finishing The Fellowship of the Ring the other day. I've never made it all the way through a Tolkien book before, despite trying on numerous occasions. But I've turned a corner with it, and consider myself a bit of a fan now.
I doubt whether I would have been converted without the aid of the films though. I don't know how original readers ever managed to keep on top of all those characters without the films as visual aids.
I should like to save the Shire, if I could -- though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them. But I don't feel like that now. I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.
