Todays book was Shroud of the Gnome (James Tate). His schtick is hard to take in such large doses. I did smile more than once, though I wish he'd vary his tone once in a while. I remember once when he used one of those adverb/adjective set phrases (you know, like "woefully inadequate") I was caught up short. I can't find it now and don't remember which one it is. I'm sure it's meant ironically, but still...
