For a while now I’ve talked about the book I started writing in 2003 as if it were some sort of a work in progress. Honestly, however, I didn’t touch it for about eight years. Meanwhile, kind friends and even strangers have encouraged me to get it done, so I’ve arranged my life in a way that I am sure to write a few hours every day. I don’t do very well about writing at home because I’m too often distracted. To counteract this I re-joined the Boston Athenaeum, the second-largest private library in the world and the largest in the United States. Fortunately for me, it’s about a ten minute walk from home and I really enjoy working there. As a result, I’m making daily headway on my book. In addition, I really enjoy being inside the beautiful building with its views over historic Boston.

We're not supposed to take pictures inside, but I took a couple of clandestine shots with my phone:
