Call Me Melville is Berkshire County's summer-long online community reading of Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick," which he wrote in Pittsfield. Read along -- a chapter a day for 135 days -- with your friends and neighbors through this epic at http://www.powermobydick.com, the annotated novel online.

Today, the Call Me Melville reading is Chapter 10, "A Bosom Friend." The first line is: "Returning to the Spouter-Inn from the Chapel, I found Queequeg there quite alone; he having left the Chapel before the benediction some time."
