I’m throwing in the towel on another one: Peter Filkins’ translation of H.G. Adler’s holocaust novel Panorama. I can already tell it’s beautiful. I think I’m just not in the mood, with the cold weather and stress of other things. And on Kobo I’ve been reading the Anne series one more time. So that’s a bit easier to pick up. Mostly looking forward to Anne’s House of Dreams. My print copy’s a lovely first edition, so it will be nice to be able to fall asleep reading it without being scared of hurting it.

I’m very much enjoying Philip Ball’s The Music Instinct: How Music Works and Why We Can’t Do Without It. Sufficiently technical, sufficiently readable. He has a knack for explaining difficult things.

I’ll go back to Adler in the spring, when I’m ready for another challenge.
