so I forget the number but one of my goals was to read 10 books recommended by 10 friends. Just finished “The Hourglass Door.” It was really fun. I love time travel stories and having an Italian foreign exchange student who’s a protegee of Leonardo daVinci was great. Not a deeply intellectual book by any means but really it was a lot of fun without having to navigate a lot of socio-politcal mine fields. By the end of the day when I crawl into bed and read, I just don’t want to go there. I am going to read the sequel.
