MATT: Well folks, I do hope that your time with "House of Spirits" has been both rewarding and (shall we say) haunting (seriously ... whew).
But even as we embark on a discussion of that fantastic tale, the time has come, my well-read friends, to talk of other things ... of shoes and ships and sealing-wax of cabbages and kings ...
And of what lovely literature the month of love shall bring ...
So, then, the question is, what should we read?
I would suggest, as possible candidates, "Essays" (by Michel de Montaigne) or "Blindness" (by Jose Saramago). Send along any other ideas and we can have a poll up by Friday, Feb. 5.
