I've tried, really hard, but I just couldn't get into two books, Second Nature, by Michael Pollan, and How Fiction Works, by James Wood. Each writes earnestly about their topics, and well. It's just that for the moment, I wasn't sufficiently interested, though I'd thought I would be. It's all me, not the authors. (Probably, when I dump a book, that's usually true, come to think of it.)

We went to services last night, but since I seem to have been having a minor fever, probably brought on by the flu shot I'd gotten a couple of days previously, I just was going through the motions. I've hardly eaten since Wednesday, actually, but I'm definitely better today.
