Got a Modern Library copy of "Ulysses" by James Joyce at the town
library book sale today.
Nothing special about it, just that I wanted to add the title to my
personal library.
In good condition complete with DJ for a buck!

That's a good price, Bob. You saved around 8 bucks.

The down side is that now you have to read it.

It IS rather slow going. You'd think a story that takes place in one day
would be a whole lot shorter.

IMO, it reads like the John Galt speech from Atlas Shrugged, expanded to 400
pages. And it set the tone for A Confederacy of Dunces. Pretty damning... 8

Ah, that's quite a compliment, coming from an illiterate hiding behind the
