The Impossible Dream

We have finished reading the Decameron at the rate of one story a day during lock-down.

I never imagined in my wildest dreams that house arrest could go on so long.

When I say "reading" above, I really mean listening as I ingested via audible. I am now very much taken with having a story playing as I go about my morning business so I intend to continue with Don Quixote for the simple reason that the chapters seem to average out around fifteen minutes. There was talk of Sherlock Holmes but his stories seem to range  from around 45 minutes to an hour and I don't have that much time between getting up and then getting down to the day's business.
