The act of reading ... begins on a flat surface, counter or page, and then gets stirred and chopped and blended until what we make, in the end, is a dish, or story, all our own.
— Adam Gopnik

Oh, Doctor Thorne!! Reading 6Barsets with you was such a wonderful reading experience! Did you ever watch the new(ish) miniseries? Can't remember if we already talked about that...

I did! I liked it, but they made his love interest (Miss Somebody, a great character whose name escapes me) an American for no apparent reason. :)
Very fond memories -- I still think this is my favorite Trollope (so far).

Thank you for visiting!
