  1. Oh, the difficulty of old, favorite books. I just recently — as in, two nights ago — started up a podcast that is me reading books to the audience in installments (like an audiobook, but less formal and more bedtime-story-ish). By legal necessity, the books I’m reading have to be in the public domain, which generally means pre-1920. There are a lot of books I want to read that have problematic aspects, and I’m really trying to determine whether it’ll be worth doing them or not. Like, Huck Finn is a great book, and was incredibly anti-racist for its time, but in 2013 I’m not sure a white guy can really read Jim’s part without it being kind of awful.
