Proust, one page at a time (update)

proustrecherche1nrf.jpg
In an earlier entry I mentioned Véronique Aubouy’s project of having 3000 people each read one page of Proust’s Recherche du temps perdu. As of 11:21 on 3 Oct 2008,
  • 325 pages have been read, which is
  • 9.49% of the Recherche, for a total of
  • 16 hours, 36 minutes, and 2 seconds.
The comments of the readers are worth reading themselves. So many reasons to read Proust!

Another Cat From Across The Street. I wonder what percentage of residential windows in Saint Louis have cats in them.
