I did not cross anything off my to-do list today. Is that why it was a perfect day?
Since it was gorgeous, I rode my bike and then sat in in an urban park. I attempted to read a library book, a light comic novel by Elizabeth Cadell, which turned out, alas, not to be my thing. And I was distracted by the leaves falling. Eventually I just watched the leaves.
SIGHT OF THE DAY: the toppled No Smoking sign in the park. Was it deliberately toppled? “Power to the people–smash the state!” A motley crowd of people hang out here, from Kum and Go corporate executives to secretaries on breaks to the homeless. So, yes, there are smokers in the park. I hate the smell of cigarette smoke but honestly–are smokers criminals? Where are they supposed to smoke?
Now how am I going to wait til April for Book 2? Should I just learn French?
More on this remarkable book later!
CURRENTLY WONDERING: how the organizers of Victober, a charming event that entails reading Victorian novels in October, can keep up with their busy schedules. They are devoted to reading multiple Victorian book, have group reads, buddy reads, a Goodreads group, and cross off the number of pages read per day on spreadsheets. It’s a lot of work. I do think private schools would happily recruit them to teach English.
CROSSED OFF ON MY TBR TODAY: cooking dinner!

Sorry, my previous comment somehow was published in the middle of my writing it.

I am glad to hear that you are having good days. It is fall here but the weather has been very nice. Winters Promise sounds very good. I tend to really like fantasy when it is imaginative and differect. I might read this book.
No problem! I just deleted the first one.
Fall is my favorite season. Thank God for some nice days, because it rained for two weeks! A Winter’s Promise is very intriguing and imaginative. I like Europa books, and my expectations are more than met with this one. It’s so much fun!
