Books read during the Ireland trip:
The Madonnas of Leningrad. …Terrific. Perhaps our next trip will be to the Hermitage in St. Petersberg. …Book recommended by the sole survivor and art history major, Bryn Mawr class of 1934, soon to be 106.
Book of Evidence. …By Irish author who won Booker Prize (best fiction in English each year).
Great Expectations. …You can get great deals for your Kindle with authors whose copyrights have expired. Variously, I have all most all the works of Thoreau, Dickens, Hugo, others for 99 cents or free.
