I started reading Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh today. I'm finding it harder to understand than A Clockwork Orange (language-wise). Weird, because it's basically English and ACO was Russian-based... I think I like it, though.

The Linen Queen - Patricia Falvey

Nothing like a good old historical fiction with a lot of romance thrown in. :D

Finished Trainspotting. Wow- really heavy, dark book. Now I have nothing else to read...

Oh wow, I wish you luck with that! :) I've never been able to stick with that book, even though I've made at least two attempts. Got something of a block on it. But I love Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

It's not too bad so far :) Ulysses seems like it would be a struggle though
