This morning I started over with "The Rest is Noise" by Alex Ross.

I'm taking notes as I go along, and note-taking is not a very strong skill for me, so it took me 45 minutes to get through four pages. The writing itself is enjoyable, which helps a lot; I'm reading this book because the other book I could easily get about the bit of music history I need to learn was rather dense and a bit too much of a slog. I'm hoping that this will be a good warm-up for that book, as well as a good way to hone my note-taking skills.

Other reading this week? Not much, I'm afraid. I've still not started the Lent book that an online group are working through. I was teaching all weekend which didn't lend itself to a lot of reading. I have, as usual, been reading various feeds online, but much of it is incidental rather than directed. So, I don't have much to report.

-reading and note-taking, as detailed above
-checked abdn e-mail, replied to a thing
-wrangling of ULCC dates
-wrangling of Aberdeen dates
-booked next trip to Aberdeen

And then I need to figure out when I might go up in April and May. May is going to be particularly difficult. April has Easter in it. I should figure out when term dates are, and stuff.
