Virginia Bound

I'm off to Virginia this morning (see this post for more info on the trip), so I'll be flying from Boston to Philadelphia and then on to Charlottesville (hopefully dodging the thunderstorms). The books that are coming with me for these two weeks are:

Patrick O'Brian, The Fortune of War; Lynn Nicholas, The Rape of Europa; Peter Carey, Parrot & Olivier in America; Jack Lynch, The Lexicographer's Dilemma; Lev Grossman, The Magicians; and Michael Kranish, Flight from Monticello.

Realistically, I probably won't get through all those, but better too many than too few (a conclusion with which my shoulders will likely find much to disagree).

The usual weekend posts are set to run, and I hope to chime in as time permits with observations from the field.

Let me know your thoughts on 'Magicians.' Also curious what you think of 'Lexicographer's Dilemma'; I'm reading that one right now.

Hope RBS is fun and educational!
