This blog started out as Michael Doherty's Personal Library, containing reviews of books that normally don't get reviewed: basically porn and cult books. It was all just a bit of fun, you understand. But when I embarked on a three-year Shakespeare study, Shakespeare basically took over, which is a good thing.

Ken and Barbie as Romeo and Juliet
I was going through some stuff at my parents' house, and found the fall 1998 FAO Schwarz catalogue (it was under some tissue paper in a box that once contained Star Wars figures). Page 30 shows a special Ken and Barbie set, in which the famous dolls are dressed as Romeo and Juliet. The collector gene is undeniably part of my genetic makeup, and I've switched from collecting Star Wars toys to collecting Shakespeare books and DVDs, and yet even I don't want these dolls. Still, I thought it worth noting here. Also, a hundred dollars? Are you kidding me?
