As I mentioned, I have quite a bit of time taking the BART (and waiting for it for astounding amounts of time). I recently finished reading the Count of Monte Cristo, which is among the longest book I have ever, though not a difficult one at all. Not the best choice to carry around perhaps, but fun to read.

The book is a strikingly violent revenge fantasy in which happiness and vengeance is available through the combined attainment of limitless wealth and harnessing of the power of an angry God. Or at least that is what I got out of it.

I was interested to find out that the Count himself rarely had to sleep because of a mixture of opium and hashish that he rolled into little balls and ate each day.
