64 x 9 (Recommended Reading)

I'm reading Rebecca Mead's My Life in Middlemarch and finding it—to use an old-fashioned word not meant to be dismissive or patronizing—charming. Mead has read and re-read Eliot throughout her life, and her book is part memoir, part literary criticism, part biography, part travelogue, and part personal reflection. All of it is thought-provoking, well-written, and surprisingly fun to read. Check it out.
