Reading progress update: I've read 310 out of 475 pages.

The Feast of the Goat - Mario Vargas Llosa, Edith Grossman

This quote seems apt considering it's Burns day tomorrow:


Is it worth living if you have to deprive yourself of the good things? Great whiskey is one of those things.


Anyone else celebrating it? I'm going for a Burns event at lunchtime where a bagpiper will play, there'll be haggis, neeps and tatties and a reading of some of his work.
