Binary out of the ordinary


Thomas Jefferson on the two dollar bill.

Fanny Osborne and Robert Louis Stevenson in Nancy Horan's novel, Under the Wide and Starry Sky.

Listening to the audiobook on commutes,
and then wishing I could drive more,
 like maybe to San Antonio or Lincoln or Albuquerque...

Nonfiction books of interest

Being special is a burden. Being not special is freeing.
This book is on my bedside table right now.
Here is the video that started it all.

Intriguing review in Kirkus 6/15/14 issue.

Lot of interesting book learnin' goin' on there, Nancy. I was particularly fascinated by the Stevenson one.

I still don't understand the plight of the two dollar bill, anymore than I understood why when I used to cashier, we were always running out of ones, fives and twenties, but hardly ever tens.

I am impressed by the audiobook, Seana, with so many different accents.
