Interesting words

"The dread of loneliness is greater than the fear of bondage. The fear of loneliness springs from weakness; human beings are intended to be free and to be free is to be lonely."
Cyril Connolly

70 - summer reading

I just transferred into my permanent record book the titles from this year's cabin vacation. I read exactly fifteen books and a good variety in the process. Now I am settling into The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, so that will slow me up for a bit. It seems like every reader I know has already read the Larsson trilogy. I bought this third volume and left it on the living room table for the right time to start.
