On books

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed on and digested.

--Francis Bacon

I'm currently reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck. I can't remember the last book that I enjoyed reading this much. For the past few years, I have been reading mostly new and young authors, no literary classic such as Steinbeck and boy, what a difference it makes. I had forgotten what a pleasure it is to read a great book by a great author. I certainly am enjoying chewing on and digesting this one.
