Right now I'm reading Pale Fire and enjoying it a great deal. It made me think about how every year through school there has always been some book that blew my dome off. This year I think it's The Rings of Saturn. But can you remember the one book you loved above all else for each year since you were a kid? I want to make a list but it will take me a while because some years are blank. In 8th grade I know I loved the short story Bartleby the Scribner (sp?) and in 9th grade I think it was Mann's Death in Venice.
