Imnotdutcheither, thanks for the complement. Yes, I read alot. I learned to speedread when I was 11, because the book I was reading was too long, and I didn't think I would ever finish until, until I noticed that you do not have to read left to right in order to understand what was written on a page. You can just scan top to bottom much faster.
Some people actually still do read books you know...
Its a lost art. But I love talking to cultured people, makes for far better verbal exchanges.
Know that you´re on the subject(hehe...) read "The Metamorphosis" by Kafka in French and "Candide" by Voltaire in French as well, and then combine that crazy one-two punch with a nice, complex to the core existentialist book like "The Outsider", by Camus.
Now thats literature for you..... Can you telll I´m slightly tipsy????
