I'm not doing too well on the old book reading front. I have five on the go. The ambitiously titled Truth by Simon Blackburn, a collection of Mark Twain, Ondaatje's English Patient, Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night and The Illuminatus trilogy.

This is mostly because I keep playing online scrabble.

The only thing I don't like about online scrabble is the opponents who are clearly using a word-generator. I mean, what's the point? You might win that way, but you haven't really won. Can it be a satisfying win when you know you cheated?

Although that said, I do admit I once used one against someone I have a grudge agin, and it was actually quite satisfying to kick their butt one way or another. Ha!
