Uncommon Reader

The above by Alan Bennett was delight and I thoroughly enjoyed spending Friday with it and relished such from cover to cover.

We are in Chicago and I went to the Powell's in Hyde Park this evening. I only found two of the four volumes of Orwell's collected nonfiction but also found a number of novels. It has been a challenging reading week with the Olympics hovering overhead.

We shall see.

I, too, was thoroughly charmed by The Uncommon Reader. It's so frothily wonderful, yet at the same time full of amusing jabs at (and appreciations of) a wide range of writers. It seems like a book that must have been much fun to write as it was to read.

I hope you enjoyed our fair city. Powell's is a treasure, but, as you discovered, a dangerous one.
