With Scripsi camping and sunning himself all week, the rest of us are as busy as one-armed paperhangers for at least the first 20 or so minutes of the workday which is when we normally tend to our blogging which is why you have been starved for entries. Back to normal next Monday.
Does anyone want to submit something for the October issue of the Library newsletter? We could really use help.
Continuing the Botton binge we started in Chautauqua, we this week finished reading The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work. We liked it every bit as much as the first three, particularly the bit about following power lines to London from their source on the South coast. Brilliant. Now we must move on to How Proust Can Change Your Life, recommended to us years ago by a long vanished page-turned-assistant-librarian but avoided because we couldn’t believe we would want to read anything involving Proust. These days, as should be clear, we will read anything involving Botton, even if it does involve Proust.
