Well, I just unexpectedly took an hour long nap. Stupid cold meds. At least I wasn't bored by my current book, The Awakening. Turns out the actual story is preceded by a rather dense academic essay. I had no idea that this book was written right before the turn of the twentieth century. The essay put the author and her story in context with the literature and social movements of the day. Said essay also gave away the ending. Boo. Hiss. That's not going to stop me from finishing this book, but I was a bit bummed to learn how things would turn out.
