My "reading at the beach" -book currently is the once-scandalous-to-the-point-of-being-banned Ulysses, by James Joyce.
Aside from now having a tendency to speak & think in oft-disjointed interior monologue --with a charming Irish brogue-- I'm musing in amazement that this novel was once (gasp!) such a focus of obscenity-law outrage.
Jeez-- I've read far more salacious stuff on the covers of the various "ladies' magazines" while in the check-out lane at the local supermarket.
Heck, I've read "worse" on the can-label of the "grillin' beans" I was buying at the time...
