Ulysses Wednesday #3
Welcome to Ulysses Wednesday, where I track my progress reading James Joyce's tale of a day in the life of Leopold Bloom.
Status: on page 162 of 783
Nothing of interest has happened since my last update. Bloom and his fellow pallbearers continue to the funeral and burial, socialize, and then Bloom goes to the newspaper office where he sells advertising -- in this chapter Joyce uses bold-print headlines to break up the action, even though (to me) the headlines don't relate to what is happening.
I probably should look for a good reader's guide to help me through; I'm hoping that this is just a dull section because I didn't get anything out of it.
