It's the Modern Revelation Book Club!

Remember on Reading Rainbow, when the kids would recommend books to you? Well if I were a charming 10 year old you could consider this mine. Only no pictures.

Just finished reading If on a Winters Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino and it is awesome in a way all good books, hell all good stories are. It wraps itself around yr head and keeps you from getting yr 8 hours. Multifaceted like a motherfucker. Multifaceted like a rappers grill.

Perfect combination of mystery, though not international intrigue, but you really want to know what’s going on, and romance. But it’s mostly about reading. How we read, why we read and our relationship with what we read or who wrote it.

I’ll spare you any dry literary analysis, but rest assured it’s not unworthy. I’ll also refrain from giving a cliff’s notes summary, cos that’s what wikipedia is for. Just go to the library or borrow it from me. But you should read it.
