U today...

Hi again:

I am going to Eugene today.

The book I am reading is very good. I am almost finished with it and I have no idea how it will end.

Yesterday I worked from 7:30 am to 5:15 pm. with no lunch.

After dinner I read my book a few hours before going to bed.

By the way the book is The Lost and Forgotten Languages of Shanghai. It is novel that has a very interesting premise. A financial officer is in a restaurant when there is an explosion next door. A big piece of glass hits head. He woke up later and could no longer speak or understand Chinese. He could only speak English. He grew up in America for 10 years and that old language came up. The hospital brings in a specialist from the U.S. She is a red-headed and very beautiful. With the guy only able to speak English and his wife and child only able to speak Mandarin. As you might expect the wife becomes upset with her injured husband as he spends so much time with the U.S. specialist.

My next book is The Devil and Sherlock Holmes, a series of columns by an author who writes for The New Yorker.

Hope your week is going well.
