Okay, I swear to god that I'm not going to be totally lame and post nothing but pictures all the time. My reading is galloping along at a respectable pace, and I'm working on a couple of posts with actual words in them. But in the meantime, I couldn't not tell you about this awesome print that arrived in the mail from my wonderful friend Shona:
And a close-up:
This print is, of course, part of Shona's ongoing campaign to get me to read her favourite novel, Moby Dick. And get this, she sent it to me before she even knew that I'd (a) revived this site, and (b) pledged to read "new books that I secretly believe I'll hate, despite the fact that lots of people say they're good".
What do you think? Is this a sign? Should 2013 be the year of the official Moby Dick Throwdown? If I do it, will you join me?
(Print available here, if you're interested.)
