  1. I got serious with Great Expectations yesterday and am currently midbook. Easter dinner calls me, however; I will have to spend several hours with a bowl of yeasty dough. Nothing like yeast rolls.

  2. Yikes! Buddenbrooks and Ulysses at the same time?
    What did you think of "A Mad Desire to Dance?"
    I'm begging my library to buy copies of Blue Fox, otherwise I have to try and mooch it or find a used copy. Have a great week!
