  1. Great review of the Williams book. Did you like The Marriage Plot?

    1. Actually...not that much. I kept feeling like I was waiting for something to happen. It was very anti-climactic.

  2. Hey! Where's your May memory and photo? Or wasn't there anything in May that's gonna be etched into your brain?

    1. Oops, Gal, you're right! I missed my self-imposed deadline. But it's up there now!
