I have had thus far a normal day. I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and a small bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer.
After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read my Reformation commentary on the Gospel of Luke. Carol got home from work around 8:50 AM and went to bed for the day. I left the house around 9:50 AM to visit thrift stores to search for used books to ADD to our library. I found these used books this morning-
"Deadeye Dick" a novel by Kurt Vonnegut
"Doom" a novel by William Gerhardie
"You Are Not a Stranger Here" Stories by Adam Haslett
"Two Sisters" a novel by Gore Vidal
"In The Bedroom" Seven Stories by Andre Dubus
"Diana: The Goddess Who Hunts Alone" a novel by Carlos Fuentes (Translated From The Spanish By Alfred Mac Adam)
"The Inheritance of Loss" a novel by Kiran Desai
"Highways To A War" a novel by Christopher J. Koch
"Land Of Desire: Merchants, Power, and the Rise of a New American Culture" by William Leach
"Long Time, No See" a novel by Dermot Healy
"Horse-Trading And Ecstasy" essays by Barbara Probst Solomon
"Queen of the Underworld" a novel by Gail Godwin
"Darwin and the Beagle" by Alan Moorehead
I could have visited more thrift stores but I was hungry so I drove home. I ate lunch and now I am writing in my blogs. I am recovering from going to Africa.
Last night I basically sat in the dining room and read the novel "Lovers At The Chameleon Club, Paris 1932" by Francine Prose till I got sleepy. Now it is 12:03 PM. I suppose I will close to go write in my paper diary and read my books. I read also this morning from a book of essays titled "Readings" by Sven Birkerts. I also read some poems by Philip Larkin this morning.
