The Theory of the Leisure Class, by Thorstein Veblen, which was very cranky and very good. The Wild Boys, William Burroughs, a re-read: I'd remembered there was a bunch of gay butt-sex in this book, but I forgot just how much. Most of The Essential Augustine, for class. It's interesting but the Jesusing is always tiresome. Epictetus, The Enchiridion, and something like The Essential Epicurus. Plato, The Euthyprho, The Apology of Socrates and The Crito. Most of Yusinari Kawabata's Palm-of-the-Hand Stories, which are quite nice--delicate, suspended. It doesn't seem like much for over a month, but I suppose I've been fairly busy.
