  •  no Willie the Shake quote here..... (6+ / 0-)

    Mozart book completed, and left at book swap locale # 2.  More slow burn reading is a volume of John Julius Norwich's Byzantium 3-part history, but very slow burn reading.  There's definitely other books on the shelf that I could read faster and get on the to-be-traded pile, but I just need to pick one.

      The word itself has a ring to it.  Best wishes with the book.  Do you have all three parts or are you just doing one?

      My daughter and 4 grandbabies will be here Sat. so I have no idea if I will make it to your diary.

      Sometimes, if I am waiting for a grandbaby to go to sleep, I will use the computer.

        No worries about SNLC; since it's a holiday weekend, it'll be a low traffic night.  However, I actually found a reasonably 'populist' topic, FWIW :) .  But back to books:  the Byzantium volume will definitely be a long slog.
