I hope Thunderstruck is better. Devil in the White City was not a book for me. By the time I got 2/3 of the way through I was dying of boredom. I don't have a better suggestion, maybe bring knitting.
Thank you for the get-betters this past week; I'm behind, trying to catch up, but I wanted you to know it was appreciated. I hope you enjoy the book; while I was in the hospital, a friend FedExed me "Winterdance," an Itarod memoir, and of course I had to thank him by reading it before I got out (meaning, I had to put down my knitting.) Quite enjoyed it and was glad I did. I would never have known about buffalo deliberately iceskating if I hadn't.
