  1. A thought to mull over: “The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.” -- John Greenleaf Whittier

    Enjoy your reading!

  2. I just finished Lament too. I was engrossed! Hope you enjoyed it too.
