I finished reading "Travels With My Aunt" by Graham Greene and was delighted with it. It was an easy read for a stressful time, but more than that it was thoroughly enjoyable. I liked the story, the characters and the language.Since then I've been able to get back into the Einstein biography in a limited way. I read about 20 pages a days so it doesn't get too overwhelming, though it's less daunting now that I'm in the latter part of his life where there is more emphasis on his personal life than on the science.
I've begun reading "Bellman and Black" by Diane Setterfield for book club next week. I probably won't be able to go but I like to keep up on the reading if I can. So far I like the book, but I'm a little leery because it's been called a ghost story and I really don't like ghost stories. I did enjoy her first book "The Thirteenth Tale", and am hoping this will be as light on the ghost aspect as that was.
I'll leave you with this quotation that came in my email today. I thought you might like it:
"Laughter is wine for the soul - laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness - the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living."
Seán O'Casey (Irish playwright)
