I have finished my first book of 2005. I started Don Quixote by Cervantes on January 1st. I completed it today. 940 pages. This was the translation by Edith Grossman. I will have more to say on this book in the coming week. For now, I am celebrating the University of Kansas' victory over the University of Kentucky.
Next up: The Book of the Dun Cow by Walter Wangerin. A book that I consider, with the exception of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, to be the great work of fantasy in the past half century.
