"This waspishness was new. I had always been aware of a frame of malevolence under his urbanity, now it protruded like his own sharp bones through the sunken skin." -- Brideshead Revisted, Evelyn Waugh

I got such a gorgeous, shivery visual from that sentence.

I like Jo Walton's post on Tor.com re: addictive reading habits. It definitely rings true to me, especially how she manages to slip reading into the interstitial moments of her days.

Man, what I wouldn't give for a train commute. (And by that I mean one in which I can actually sit and read. I had a summer job that involved Metro commuting and although it is theoretically possible to prop up a book in the five inches between your face and the body of the person crammed into the train next to you, it's not really practical.)
