Sundry Literary Web Snippets

March 16, 2010 · No Comments

…break week web surfing (who still says web surfing other than me?) lead to two interesting and eclectic literary posts. First, Flavorwire their 30 Favorite Opening Lines in Literature, and it’s a good list…my only Flavorwire excluded inclusion might be Byron’s I want a hero, an uncommon want from Book One of Don Juan. Also, writing for the Guardian’s Book Blog Toby Lichtig detailed how he has to finish any book he starts, quitting on them is not in his make up.  A fine chronicle of one man’s confessions of themselves as reader, compulsive habits and all.  Pondering who one is as a reader is never a waste of time, web-read or otherwise!
