    I feel illiterate. And it feels fine!

    Good lord! And you were traveling. I envy people who can read that much that quickly… but then, I have had a crazily busy month. Still, for me it’s like 3 books at most so far this year.

    Methinks I should put a hard limit on my internet time-wasting, though. Because when I was traveling and ill, I found I was suddenly reading like back before 1994–a lot more and quicker. Hm.

    As I am currently liquidating my own holdings (I mean, sorting through books to keep, books to sell off, etc.) I’m feeling the weight of those books not-yet-read… Oh, and I have some to give back to you, and some to throw in. Will you be visiting Seoul anytime in February?

    • Justin says :

      Not sure about February. We’re going to Jin’s folks for the holiday, and moving at some point, so my one free weekend is tomorrow and Sunday. Are you still around in March?

      • gordsellar says :

        Argh! We’re planning to fly out on standby, but I’m not sure when we’ll be in Korea in March, and definitely the books will be dealt with and sorted out by then. I can post ’em down to you if you email me your address… and we should be able to meet up in March at some point, though I cannot be 100% sure when. (But I’ll be sort of around, waiting for my teacher’s pension money and severance pay to come through, and so on.)

      • Justin says :

        Well, I’ll be around and I’ll email you my address.
