Books to read…

The Complete Works of Shakespeare – in progress, with joy (Using a giant anthology as a reading copy is too unwieldy, so I am checking out annotated paperback editions of each play, and, once I finish the Henry VI trilogy (plus Richard III!), will read a history, a drama, a comedy, a sonnet–rinse and repeat.

Dracula by Bram Stoker – at last! (Up there with Frank Herbert’s Dune in why-haven’t-I-read-this-yet-ness.)
