I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. Carol had gotten up this morning around 5 o'clock AM. I got up and sat in our dining room drinking cold water and letting the morning sweat dry on my old skin. My skin is old. I am an old man.
Carol wanted to go grocery shopping so I got dressed and we were out the door before 8 o'clock AM. We were home from grocery shopping around 9:10 AM.
I left to volunteer at the library used books store The Book Nook around 9:40 AM. The Book Nook today was slow so I read from a novel titled, 'The Red Lily' by Anatole France. I brought home these used books from the Book Nook to ADD to our library-
'The Dean's December' a novel by Saul Bellow
'More Die Of Heartbreak' a novel by Saul Bellow
'Classic Tales Of Espionage And Suspense' by Graham Greene
When I got home from the Book Nook it was 1:10 PM. Carol was not home, she had gone to visit her elderly friend Pam. I ate lunch and then wrote in my paper diary.
In the mail this afternoon I received a used book I had ordered titled, 'Stephen Spender: A Life In Modernism" biography by David Leeming. When Carol got home around 3:10 PM I was sitting in our dining room writing in my diary and reading 'Stephen Spender: A Life In Modernism'.
Last night I mainly read late into the night, Lolita' a novel by Vladimir Nabokov. This is a reread for me reading 'Lolita'.
Well I will close to drift in the death flow. Carol goes to Covenant PCA tonight and I will spend the evening reading from these books-
'Cold Warriors Writers Who Waged The Literary Cold War' by Duncan White
'Ducks, Newburyport' a novel by Lucy Ellmann
'Stephen Spender: Journals 1939-1983' Edited By John Goldsmith
I will now make my final bow.
