His letters are hilarious and he wrote the most striking short description of the aftermath of an ice storm that I have ever read. I'm looking forward to reading the autobiography that just came out. I also am a HUGE Jane Austen fan - her perception about human behavior is still spot on after 200+ years.
i don't remember not knowing how to read also. i read most any thing. used to have a rule "if started a book had to be read to the end" i no longer do that, decided it was a waste of time on some books. reading is my teacher, my friend and my entertainment. good for you, sounds like you are the same.
