I'm so glad you enjoyed, everbody. I'm a little bit behind, but I'll be starting "The Sound And The Fury" this weekend.

And thanks all for reading Faulkner with me. Believe it or not, it was hard to find anyone in my realtime life to participate with me (we were all FORCED to read Faulkner (as well as Tennesse Williams) so there's some negative connotation for most of the folks around here.)

I'm convinced most kids aren't ready to appreciate the nuances of his work, anyhow. I know I wasn't.

and yawp...I'll be around.

I'm going to play catchup...a very kind Shenachie gifted me with her set just last night...and now I'm chomping at the bit.

Especially since I just gobbled down two of Rick Bragg's books..."All Over but the Shoutin'" and "Ava's Man".

After you're all done with Faulkner?

I think Bragg is a star on the Christmas tree! Of the gift in your stocking.

In the "April Seventh, 1928" section (Benjy's section), the small bright object is a condom box. During the 1920s one of the popular brands of condoms was "The Merry Widow," which came packaged in a round metal box of threes. The man in the red tie reads the label of the Merry Widow box when he says: "Agnes Mabel Becky" (p. 50). Those were the names on the top label of the metal boxes, "Three Merry Widows Agnes Mabel
Becky".

I found this hilarious! It is as much fun reading all the notes,.questions and answers as reading the book.I have not finished The Sound and The Fury as I neglected to take the book to Ct.I read two books while there but Summer reading type.Beach Girls and another by Luanne Rice.
Any one  finish yet?  They are starting the third book this week.

tsk...I'm behind m'self.

I got so caught up in As I Lay Dying, I read it three times. (I tend to read too fast, so I try to make up for it by re-reading.)

and Merry Widow, indeed.

I'd love to have a box of that, just as a conversation, um, piece....yanno?



Hugs all.

You think YOU'RE behind, Karen?...

I'm still not through "As I Lay Dying"...

With all the work we've been doin' around the house lately, seems I'm havin' trouble slowing down enough to do much reading...
but?.. I WILL finish it...and?... I WILL read the other two books too...

Um... soon... LOL

And Maree?...

In answer to your question... though I haven't finished it yet, I am LOVING it!

Was telling K, the other night... it's one of maybe 2 books that I've ever read that have made me wanna highlight parts of the book... it has grabbed me THAT much...

That doesn't happen to me... I'm the kind of reader that has to be grabbed in the first few pages, or I'll put the book down... and yep.. I know that's a bad practice.. but it's the honest truth...

This book, though?... no problem at all.. I was intrigued by the title alone...and then the style of writing?.. was just icing on the cake... I can't wait to read more!

And?...

I miss you too, my friend...

I knew I had to stay away from this thread until I'd have time for the F man. LOL
I read him before I was ready. It seems that after accumulating 59 years on planet X, I am finally ready to handle this guy.
SOOOOO, next week, I think it'll be time to tackle'em.
Better late than never, is that still a truth?

oh, and I think a tin can of Merry Widows might be
a most delicious...hmmmm, conversation piece?
