So, /lit/, do any of you memorize passages from novels, plays, or poems that you enjoy?
I can recite the inscription on the gate to Hell from Dante's Inferno, Puck's final speech from Midsummer's Night Dream, and most of Prince Hal speaking over Falstaff's (apparently) dead body from Henry IV, Part I. I used to have some other passages memorized, but now they've degraded into random lines here and there. Am I just weird or do any of you do the same?
I've read The Pale King 3 times. Ask me anything.

But not really, because we don't 'do' that here. Very good book though. Seemed painfully average the first time, half good chapters and half bad, now I consider it a very good read. So many well-written sections. Wallace through and through. Interesting ideas, well thought out characters, and non-linear and disparate. I know most of /lit/ has read this, but why don't more people enjoy it? Do you have to read it at least twice to enjoy it a lot?
