Reading in the Dark


“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” — Groucho Marx

This quotation is printed on the back of a t-shirt from my favorite bookstore, Joseph-Beth's in Lexington, KY.  I thought of it last night as I sat on my bed, reading Revolutionary Road in the dark with a little flashlight.  My apartment hasn't had power in over 24 hours.  Here's hoping that it's back on when I get home from school this evening.  

There were crazy high winds Monday morning that uprooted a giant tree near my complex that toppled over some power lines.  It also fell clear across the road making it still impossible to turn right out of my apartment building.  Power may not come back until tomorrow.

I had big plans for posts the past few days, but I was thwarted by the lack of electricity and internet.  Perhaps my brilliant blogging schedule will begin next week...

Good luck with your lack of power. I hope it returns asap!

How do you like revolutionary road? Is it worth picking up?

I like it so far. I'm only about half way through. It's pretty depressing, but definitely interesting.
