Oh La La Paris

While I'm staying in Paris for a trade fair...

... Toño finished Gustave Flaubert's masterpiece Madame Bovary. Toño practises the technique of slow book. He picks his reading very carefully and works on them at least for a year. Toño's previous book was Tolstoy's War and Peace in the restored original version (more about). Yesterday, he started his next project: El corazón de piedra verde by Salvador de Madariaga (read about).

Paris - how awful for you.

Like my sister, I usually have several books on the go at any one time. Dear Mum used to blame Dad's side of the family for it, until she learn't her very own Uncle Walter did the same!
