Re: What are you reading now?
I'm reading Will in the World by Stephen Greenblatt. So much of what we know of Shakespeare's life is speculative, and Greenblatt does a great job of trying to cull together a picture of his life from his work, not his limited biographical resources. He constantly sets it off with reminders that it's still a lot of guesswork, but it's fascinating and a great exercise in critical analysis. And more entertaining than I'm making it sound.
Side note, this is the first book I've ever picked up and read that I honestly can't remember whether i've read it before. I should have treated my brain better when I was younger.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
