really liked it

I've been slowly making my way through this book. So far it's been a great read. My favorite so far is from the journal of a tenth century Japanese court woman entitled "Hateful Things" where she lists all things hateful to her - witty and insightful! But don't get bogged down with Montaigne....you can skip him :)I'll list other good ones as I keep reading.
