Just a few chapters

Read chapter three a couple of days ago--all about Ishmael having to share the bed with Queequeg. It was there for a bit of humor and to introduce his friend, on whose coffin Ishmael floats to safety.

Chapter four was just about Queequeg waking up and getting ready for the day, his "toilet" as the book puts it. Woke up with his arm around Ishmael.

Chapter five, entitled "Breakfast," had the guys come downstairs.

Man, is this book slow.

I will get through it this summer. I vow.
