The Burden of Knowledge…

Packing up for holiday travel. I figured my 11-hour train ride would be the perfect time to finish Julie Kavanagh’s Nureyev bio, but it’s so blasted heavy; it’s taking up about 70% of my bag. Behind her is Jonathan Ames, whose novel, The Extra Man I just finished and before that a hilarious book of his essays. He’s my new best friend 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. I really wanted to buy that book but since I didn’t have enough money on my gift card it’s going on my wishlist 🙂

  2. Have a safe trip!

  3. 11 hour train ride… sounds like fun.. Reallly.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I think I’m getting that book for Xmas… or I’m telling people that ask me what I want about it. But yes, when i looked at it at Barnes and Noble, it seemed very large and hard to carry.

  5. Thanks you guys. Good to hear from you again Konagod 🙂 I LOVE trains! The Nureyev is a really good book, just extremely comprehensive, and therefore heavy and expensive. Hopefully it’ll come out in paperback at some point and be less of both! Anyway, happy holidays everyone!

  6. ^I agree with you now. That thing weighs 10 pounds. The first 15 pages were akin to Robinson Crusoe’s first chapter for me, but once I pushed through those, I was definitely glad I did.
