Readathon, Day 3

Today I got to read quite a bit:

Pamela--my usual 50 or so pages.  I think this whole volume is going to be about Pamela settling into married life and getting used to being rich, plus a whole lot of reminders about the action of volume 1.  Practically nothing happens, but every once in a while something does.

In the First Circle, by Solzhenitsyn--I got to read, oh, 60 or 70 pages.  It's a truly great novel, but I'm having to take it slowly.  It is not to be rushed.

Another Nibley essay from Approaching Zion.

Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh, by R. L. LaFevers--I read pretty much the whole thing (I started last night).  That was a fun break from all the serious reading I've been doing lately.  It's the 4th book in the series and takes the action to a new level; I thought it was well-done.  Today's music selection belongs to Theodosia, and of course it's the Bangles' Walk Like an Egyptian.  What else could it be if you grew up in the 80s?  Look out for Lady Di and Ghaddafi doing the Egyptian dance:

Wow, good work. It took me all summer to finish that, I think.

Oh, I didn't start it recently--I've been working on it for a few weeks now...
