    Don’t Let’s Go… was FABULOUS. Paris, 1919; Margaret McMillan sounds interesting–I took a course on the history of Paris & Berlin in the 20s years ago, so I’ll likely look for this book.

      I brought home “Passionate Minds” and “Wild Swans”. I finished PM in 3 days. Now I need to read the book our homeschooling book club is doing for next week, but then I will dip into Wild Swans.
