In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned that I was in the middle of a move. That is now done. I’ve also had a rather nasty encounter with the health care system, so while my reading didn’t actually decrease in volume, I have been unable to blog. Now, as you can see, I am once more connected to the blogosphere, and in the next few posts will attempt to “catch up” somewhat. For a little while, my posts may be somewhat briefer than those to which you may have become accustomed. Such brevity is the result partly of my trying to catch up and partly because one of the “casualties” of the move is that most of my books are in store; I’ve become, therefore, almost totally dependent on my e-reader, and I’m still finding manoeuvring my way back and forth finding specific quotations and so forth rather time-consuming. Discovering how I’m going to manage without being surrounded by walls of books is going to be an interesting voyage of discovery.
