Finished Daudet's "Windmill"; Have Started Re-reading Beckett's Trilogy

I enjoyed Daudet much more than I thought I would. His forays into Algeria--and away from his windmill--even got me thinking about Morocco, Bowles, and The Sheltering Sky. Though I read his "Windmill" with "uneven interest," as a whole I found the text simple (in a good way) and simply wonderful.

Still working on Herbert's collected prose.

With some intrepidation (what can I say: Beckett is intense and demands your complete attention) I started re-reading Beckett's trilogy (via Kindle): Molloy, Mallone Dies, and The Unnamable.
