i can read

i never used to have time to read. now i have the subway ride to and from work. it's a prison. i'm forced to read, and i love it. since moving to nyc in august, i've read these public domain books on my iphone:
  • the adventures of sherlock holmes; sir arthur conan doyle
  • the picture of dorian gray; oscar wilde
  • wuthering heights; emily bronte
  • the idiot; fyodor dostoevsky
  • to the lighthouse; virginia woolf
  • the adventures of tom sawyer; mark twain
  • heart of darkness; joseph conrad
  • the mysterious affair at styles; agatha christie
they were all fantastic, but "to the lighthouse" stands out as one of the best books i've ever read. i had never read woolf before. she expertly articulates the inarticulate, invisible, intangible urges that drive relationships.
