I’m done with The Tale of Genji.
I’m sure it’s a fine novel, especially for being 1,000 years old. But October is my favorite month. And Something Wicked This Way Comes is my favorite read during my favorite month.
So, even though Ray Bradbury’s incomparable book was written in 1962, and the next book (Pride and Prejudice) on my Year Two reading list was written in 1813, and my plan was to read books in chronological order, I don’t think anyone is going to complain that I changed my own rules at the outset.
