So where has everyone got to with this one? I don't want to accidentally gallop off and realize I'm out in front all on my lonesome.
I should say I do have form for doing this. All of my school assignments were to read the first two chapters of whatever had been assigned, and I invariably would think bollocks to that, and read the entire thing. This included The Mayor of Casterbridge, and The Pearl (my school liked to give the kids upbeat reading material).
And look at this! Does anyone else semi-yearn for the days before libraries went electronic?
