Chronicles of Prydain, book 3, The Castle of Llyr; Visit with friends
I started book 3 of the series I'm reading by Lloyd Alexander. It's the "romantic" story, mentioned by the author in his notes. I have been rolling my eyes more at this book - the protagonist just doesn't understand why he feels so strange around the main female character! It's still well written, and I'm enjoying how the author explains in his note the difference in this book over the last two. This evening, I did some social distance visiting, on a friend's back porch. The storm that swept in the area cooled things down about 15 degrees and made it very pleasant to be outside. I visited for over three hours and two bottles of wine, enjoying varied conversation topics, like classic movies or the difference between intelligence and wisdom. I'm looking forward to visiting with them again!
