    An interesting article about how most people forget most of what they ever read. I appreciate this as I can't remember much at all about most of the novels I've ever read, only that I've read them.

    I read 'Death in Venice' last year while in Rome and then read it again, immediately afterwards. I remember thinking this was the way one should read novels (easier to do in this case as it's pretty short). Of course I never did it again afterwards.

    So spake the false dissembler unperceivd;
    For neither Man nor Angel can discern
    Hypocrisie, the onely evil that walks
    Invisible, except to God alone,
    By his permissive will, through Heav'n and Earth: [ 685 ]
    And oft though wisdom wake, suspicion sleeps
    At wisdoms Gate, and to simplicitie
    Resigns her charge, while goodness thinks no ill
    Where no ill seems:
