[Comments] (1) Reading: I finished Gould's I Have Landed. I love to read Gould, and it makes me sad to know there will be no more of his brilliant books. I took a little detour and read Snow White and the Seven Samuri by Tom Holt. It's funny. (funny ha ha and a little bit funny peculiar.) It's all the fairy stories, Star Trek, LOTR, Narnia, Harry Potter, and who knows what else mixed together.

Now I'm working on an advance copy of Frances Mayes, A Year In The World. It's a rather nice travelogue, but somehow I think I'd rather go to the places myself than read about them in someone else's travelogue. Because I'm reading an uncorrected proof, I'm also bugged by the typos I find. I wonder if I could get a job doing that--reading books and finding the errors. So far I've only found one error of fact, but what do I know?

Next I need to be starting on the Borges biography. I don't think the travelogue will take me very many days.

Some BYU alumni wrote a film called Snow White and the Seven Shoalin and the last I heard, Yuen Woo Ping had picked up it, but changed the title and probably a lot of the script. I'm still looking forward to it though.
