Although I have to admit I've tried to read Joyce and crashed and burned...

Leslie | 777 comments I didn't even like the movie I saw based on one of his books, don't even remember which one. Ulysess is always number one on the lists of great novels, but I'd like to know how many people have really read it? And how many started it and didn't finish it? And how many knew what the heck he was talking about? And most importantly, how many people started it, read it, finished it, understood it and enjoyed it? That's what I'd like to know!

Usako (bbmeltdown) I'm actually joining an online Ulysess reading group - read so much over a period of a year. Reminds me to go log into it tonight!

Richard | 347 comments You need to get out more, Matt-matician. Go swim those laps. And I mean that literally, not figuratively.


message 7: by Matthieu (new)

Matthieu | 1009 comments Haha, will do, Richard. Though you'd never realize it by my interests, I actually HAVE a social life.


message 8: by Richard (new)

Richard | 347 comments Glad to hear it, Matt. This is it for me, I'm afraid.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I will be watching Love and Other Drugs in honor of Bloomsday. I might take my kids to the supermarket, too.

No, you're watching that to see Anne Hathaway.

Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Isn't TODAY Bloomsday? And isn't today THURSDAY?

I haven't read much Joyce, and I don't really plan to any time soon.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Oh! That explains it, Misha.

And here I thought it was just RA being all spacey from his insomnia.
