Short Comments on Two Different Books

Finished some books recently. The Chekhov Letters book and Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me (basically a life etiquette book).

Just a few comments:

On Chekhov: I always enjoy reading artists/writers/poets letters and journals. I love the intimacy of it. I have to admit, I never did read any of Chekhov's work, but I enjoyed the letters. Enjoyed the language used.

On Things I Wish.....
I wish I didn't read it. It was a little ridiculous to me and I don't see how any of it would be pertinent to my life. But that's just me.


Am reading Allen Ginsberg's letters now and it is far more enjoyable than the etiquette book...
