I decided to read Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. I really need to learn not to start these epic length books, since I rarely like them. This one isn't bad so far, but it's definitely on the slow side. I'm around 350 pages in, and that's just barely over 1/3 of the book. I'm going to spend 3 times the time I normally would on a book on this one. I sure hope the pay-off is worth it.
