June Reading Update

End of another month. Only got in three books this time:

1. Early Autumn by Louis Bromfield. Good story set in New England about an old established family (a self important, self proclaimed American aristocracy) and the invasion of the Irish. Ended rather unhappily really.

2. Science and Thought in the Fifteenth Century by Lynn Thorndike. Read like a doctoral dissertation to show how well the author can research. But the thread was bare. It's not a good sign when you have to read the author's introduction after reading the book to find out why she wrote the thing in the first place. Tough one.

3. The Black Dwarf by Sir Walter Scott. Good Scottish romance with all the requisite characters - dashing hero, beautiful maiden, misshapen misanthropist, evil relatives, and secretive confidantes. Always enjoyable.


45 minute recovery run today in dense fog. Felt good.
