reading: the thousand autumns of jacob de zoet by david mitchell. this is a reading group selection that i confess i was not entirely sure i'd love, but it's so involving and so very well written that i was won over completely by page three!!!
planning: not one but two VERY last-minute trips, to florida (this friday) and california (mid-april)... both are short-notice and long stories, but in excellent, happy ways! so please forgive me if i am even worse than usual in terms of email & comments!
