Three times I threatened to get my sorry ass to the West Harrison library to check out a few of the books you all so kindly recommended. Three times I didn’t get there.
But I DID manage to get to the Bedford Free Library and left with a new digital library card and just down downloaded the Libby Library app on my iPad.
Bingo. Splendid and the Vile. I have seven days to finish it. Yikes. Thanks again for the suggestions and thanks too for the heads up about the Libby app. I must live under a rock that I didn’t know about Libby.
