Well, I'm at 98% on my Kindle, so pretty close. I've only read Ulysses by Joyce so far, and it was just "okay." Yeah, my semester is about to start, but I've managed to read quite a lot this summer. During school I still manage to read, just not as much. Are you an English major?

Thank you very much.
Not really a guitarplayer, no. I know a bit, but I would by no means call myself a guitarplayer.
I'm pretty good at the piano and violin, but guitar I just know enough to get by.
I love your avatar picture. Groucho was incredible.
