The first two times I read it for fun. Third and fourth have been project related, though I willingly do so.

I love this book.

Yes, yes, very snobby. But, are they annotated? I mean, if you're going to go book snob, you need to go all out.

Tristram Shandy.

Okay, I'm kidding, I couldn't get through to the end.  The over-bearingly smarmy text was just too much after the 300th page :)
