    That was fascinating, and a bit of a challenge. I’m the worlds worst skim-reader and I’m well aware of it, and I sometimes wonder just how much I’m missing.

    I read Vikram Seth’s _Golden Gate_ a while ago and found it a fascinating process, despite not particularly liking the book. What was enjoyable was how the nature of the book – a novel in verse – forced me to read every single word, whether I chose to or not. To a degree I find the same when I clumsily attempt to translate something from French.
