It's been quite a week...so many great things happening and so I've been glad to spend a little time adding texture and colour to a canvas today:
The Professor and the Madman
by Simon Winchester
This book is actually non-fiction but is so fascinating, it actually reads more like a fiction novel. The story revolves around the making of the Oxford English Dictionary which began in 1857 and took seventy years to complete. The two characters, Professor James Murray and Dr. William Chester Minor, an American surgeon, became unlikely friends.
