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 15, "Chowder."

The first line is: "It was quite late in the evening when the little Moss came snugly to anchor, and Queequeg and I went ashore; so we could attend to no business that day, at least none but a supper and a bed." Read the chapter here, http://www.powermobydick.com/Moby015.html.
