Why I haven't started reading yet

I’m waiting on Amazon, who is delivering ULYSSES unto me. I doubt there’s a single copy available anywhere in Bali to buy, borrow, or steal.

Amazon’s cheapest shipping fee was as much as the book. Since I’m still a pre-famous and pre-rich author,* the total is a big chunk of money to me. This is proof of my seriousness. I’m not spending that sort of money on a whim.

* Ancient Balinese curse: May your fame and fortune be postmortem.
