Busy busy! But look what I found in the meantime.
Charlotte Bronte's traveling writing desk, on display at the NY Public Library.
Eighteen beautiful miles of books at Strand.
And a perfect reading perch in the Shenandoah's.
Next trip - up to Albany with a pilgrimage to Edith Wharton's home, "The Mount." (And if I'm lucky, maybe a side trip to check out some charming used bookstores.) So I'm reading House of Mirth and (time permitting) Age of Innocence to prepare myself. Turn-of-the-century gentility, here I come!
