This is getting ridiculous.

Is this the record for most books checked out of the library at once?
But wait, there's more...
I may share the paper on Richard Wright's Native Son I am currently working on. So far I have done probably 15 hours of research and I am nowhere close to even starting it yet. But who cares... there's something exhilirating about sitting in the library for hours, reading obscure sources, which in turn lead to more sources and ideas. My favorite so far was the Soviet literature journal International Literature, for which there is not even an index in the library. So I went through the table of contents for each edition from 1932-1940, seeking out any reference to Dostoevsky. There's some really cool stuff in there. If you have the time, check it out.
