Frankie (thefranklynn) I read through this today and found it highly entertaining, so I thought I would share! Some of these critiques raised my opinion of the critic and others banished them from my good graces forever.

Quote of the day is: "[Ulysses is] the work of a queasy undergraduate scratching his pimples" - Virginia Woolf on James Joyce

I'm curious if any of these stir up passionate agreement or dissent. I must confess that I tend to agree with Virginia on James, but I suspect I'm not in the majority on that score.

"Just the omission of Jane Austen's books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadn't a book in it."
Mark Twain

Such a snarky group of people!
