    Zinman. He had a wide-ranging interest in literature, philosophy, mathematics, history, art, and every other subject. I picked up Theory of the Leisure Class once but my 12-year-old mind couldn't cope, so I put it down again.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to just read all day--and then to go for walks to think about what we've read.
