Since I'm a soy-boy nigger faggot, I'm reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.

Her heroine, Catherine Moreland, is young and socially awkward. She goes to Bath, pump rooms, balls, theater, and has difficulty making friends, knowing what to say, fitting in, etc.

Austen catches the agony of social awkwardness perfectly. It reminded me of 40 years ago, when I went to University and, err, how can I put this,..., was not a social success. So several times I've had to put the book down because I was cringing so hard. Catherine, I know just how you feel, I can still remember after all these years :-(

Just a couple of chapters to go, something might actually happen, though probably not.
