“Turn off your radio. Put away your daily paper. Read one review of events a week and spend some time reading good books. They tell too of days of striving and of strife. They are of other centuries and also of our own. They make us realize that all times are perilous, that men live in a dangerous world, in peril constantly of losing or maiming soul and body. We get some sense of perspective reading such books. Renewed courage and faith and even joy to live.”

September 3rd: Latest Purchase
I’m super proud of this one. Less than a week ago I bought my most recent hard copy of a book, The Paris Wife. In Paris. At Shakespeare and Company Book Store. I really wish I had bought more books, but travelling with them is so hard, so I had to make a good choice. This book is about Earnest Hemingway’s wife and their relationship in Jazz Age Paris. Super excited to read this one.
