Christian Reading His Book— one of William Blake’s illustrations for Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress

For the last week, I’ve been mostly reading and exploring. It’s amazing the number of things there are to see/do here in the Twin Cities. I like it. However, once I laid down my burden, what surprised me most was the desire I had to read—and not just anything, but something hard.

I’ve been reading The Confidence Man: His Masquerade by Melville. I’m starting my second pass through it now, and it is a truly rich book. I suppose that’s what I miss most about being a literature geek—the fun of unpacking really dense things and examining them closely.
