quid pro quo

I was out yesterday afternoon at the funeral of Frankie's 93 year old mother. Just as I feared (Icons passim) the video of my dancing with her turned up as part of the proceedings and this time I finally had to watch it. Uptown Funk was the guilty tune.

Talking to Steve at the reception I learned that he is reading Tom Holland now after learning the same thing from Sean last weekend. My plugging must have been a lot more breathless that I remember.

Steve reciprocated by saying that The Human Stain, by Philip Roth is the best novel he has ever read. That is on my Amazon wish list now. I finally managed how to add it via the Kindle app on my phone. I still can't work out how to read the wish list on Android though. I would have imagined that would be a basic requirement given that whenever a finish a book I need to buy a new one.
