Books I've Read

The reason I read is simply explained by looking down the banquet table to Tolstoy's German tutor who sat, "trying to remember all the dishes, wines, and kinds of dessert, in order to send a full description of the dinner to his people in Germany; and he felt greatly offended when the butler with a bottle wrapped in a napkin passed him by.  He frowned, trying to appear as if he did not want any of that wine, but was mortified because no one would understand that it was not to quench his thirst or from greediness that he wanted it, but simply from a conscientious desire for knowledge."  (War and Peace, Book 1, Chapter 18)
