I don't think I was really reading it properly, just turning the pages if you know what I mean
whats happened is that i have, for a short time only, been granted an ability to interface with aspects of the text which i am usually blocked from.
the continual opening up and shutting down of these opportunities to interface with different aspects of the Face of God is very interesting to me but have nothing to do with tangents.
Absolutely- it’s why I have so many on the go and recognising what’s going to fit. I totally get that ‘just turning the pages’ idea especially when reading stuff in the past. I now think I’m more honest about it because, after all, no one gives a shit about whether you’ve read Proust or not, except possibly yourself.Being honest with yourself. This isn't working. I'm not really reading this. And putting it down and picking up something you can read. Trying again a year down the line or whatever.
I’ve taken to having a Wikipedia page for Little Dorrit for those times when I can’t quite remember how a minor character came into the story. Just so I can retrace and pick up their thread.There's also the question of what's good enough for instance the newspaper office, for me, too many names, can't handle it, have to get a piece of paper, draw on it, circle for bloom, one for Steve, one for JJ, who are these people? Look it up.
