Yes, the shame of not having read anything lately is causing me to leave town. No, I'm running away from home. Going far away, taking only The Once and Future King and one backpack with me. It's a good book, but hard to get through, and being stuck on an airplane for 10 hours with nothing else but the emergency evacuation instructions to read is a good way to get through something like that. When I read The Three Musketeers and Mutiny on the Bounty, it was on a trip to visit family in Iowa.
I will be back and resume posting about July 27.
