Well, turns out I cannot read this moth's book as I lent my 505 to my mother-in-law while her 500 is away on upgrade. Might have it back on Monday. But if not, I'll ask my wife if I can borrow her 505 after I finish the book on Monty Python's Life of Brian. Yes, it's a hardcover.

Of the nine nominees, I'd already read six.

Not the winner, though - no such luck.

Only 20% of the votes went for The Trial, that's less than half-way to a majority.

Or almost no one, anyway.
I'm reading it - just not finished yet, I started late. I'm treating much like a puzzle. The events in the book can so obviously be read as symbolic of something else, so I'm noting all those things that could be the key to understanding what Kafka may have meant. It gets really interesting that way.
