  1. Welcome back to the Book Dialogue! I am very happy to see its return. I enjoyed this discussion of The Weight of Ink. The book sounds like one I would enjoy.

      I think that you would be very interested in this book. I had read that Spinoza (yes – he is in the book too) was an outlier, but this book brought that time alive for me. If you have time, I think that you would enjoy this read on JSTOR but it is a long, long read: https://daily.jstor.org/summoning-17th-century-scholars-researching-the-weight-of-ink/

      I understand it took her 10 years to write The Weight of Ink. My gratitude to writer and poets!! Their long hours with pen and paper or typewriter or computer, is a gift to readers.

      1. I think War and Peace is about the only long, long read I’m up for right now! However, your comment did jog my memory that I need to work on JSTOR research in the near future for my novel-in-progress.

        Oh no – I meant the article. LOL The Weight of Ink is not War and Peace. Promise!!! JSTOR is an amazing resource isn’t it!!

      3. Oops! 😀 Yes, I’m looking forward to delving into JSTOR. (I’m still on a bit of a Library of Congress high!)

    Love this but the best part is two sisters in the same room! You can’t imagine how good that image is.
