Sweet Jane

Is it wrong to reread a book when there are so so many books I haven't read yet? Lately I have been in the mood for some Jane but have been resisting, telling myself that there are only so many reading hours in my life so I should be spending them on something new to me. But, what the hell? Maybe I should be spending them based on current whim, regardless of whether it is new or old. Actually, I feel no qualms about rereading if I am doing it aloud to someone else, but that doesn't come up much these days, sadly.

I started thinking about this again today since, during the free association that goes on during my lengthy drive in to work, I drew a blank on the title of Emma (and the name of the title character, too, obviously ;-) ), which bugged me. Of course, I was coming at it from a strange direction (Kate Beckinsdale), but still.

I had read about Vinge's Singularitry before (and agreed that IA seems a lot more likely than AI), but hadn't seen that attempt to predict it. I'll have to bookmark that for after-work perusal.
