Quick Trip

I'm off to alma mater this morning to give an afternoon talk on Union's first library collection (which was the subject of the thesis I finished last winter). Back tonight, and will resume regular posting then or tomorrow.

Bus reading: Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild (not yet started), John P. Marquand's The Late George Apley (in process, but better read while sitting in the Public Garden), and a pile of articles from recent New Yorker and Smithsonian issues. [Update: Oh, and at least one of the five back issues of American Historical Review that are cluttering up my 'to read' shelf].
