It's great to hear from you again. Sorry for the delay in responding.

I wish I could have seen Derrida in person. I'm not an acolyte, but it's great to have that personal experience when you can. I also like his book Archive Fever a good deal.

They aren't that well dusted, actually. It's just that there's a bit of an overhand above, with stuff stacked on top of them, to collect the dust instead!

I guess those are pretty weighty shelves, density-wise, by most standards. The funny thing is that I often find myself feeling less burdened reading that sort of thing than fiction, where my failure to get absorbed in plot -- a common problem -- piles on the guilt.
