From Three Junes by Julia Glass, page 122 :
My flat, though clean, was furnished with carelessly mingled things I'd purchased mostly in charity shops (in Brooklyn, not Quezaltenango). Politely, Mal began his first visit perusing my bookshelves, Felicity touring along on his shoulder. I learned, with minimal gratification, that he was not well read and not at all sorry about it.
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
I'm dividing my time between New York, Dumfries, Scotland and Naxos, a Greek island. I'm also going back and forth through time, the 1980s and 1990s and a bit of post WWII.
