Reading and enjoying (yes, they are simultaneous)

The Princess Bride, the abridged version by William Goldman. Surprisingly enough, his long drawn-out intro was sort of worth the read. Although it could have been conveniently summed up into "I took out the parts that weren't worth reading if you want an action-packed novel", instead of telling us his somewhat but mostly not relevant life story.

** UPDATE: I was just informed that there really is no such place as Florin or Guilder, and that Goldman really did write The Princess Bride instead of just abridging it. Why not just give me a paper cut in the eye and pour lemon juice on it?
