February 24, 2014, Monday night -- Reading Christopher Isherwood

At the Revolution Cafe during an intermission of Classical Revolution (great classical music that happens every Monday night)
Reading Goodbye to Berlin, by Christopher Isherwood, which she had just picked up at nearby Dogeared Books on Valencia Street.  She was saying that she likes that it's open late, which reminded her of another bookstore, in Seattle, which is also open late, called Twice Told Tales, that has lots of cats that can wander all over the store overhead on interconnected bookshelves.
Her favorite book of all time is The Passion, by Jeanette Winterson, which she loves for the language.  When she was 13, her first favorite book was Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë

She said she reads all the time.

Her mention of The Passion has me remembering a reading at the Emerald Tablet by Jenny Bitner where she reads from another Jeanette Winterson book: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9gIjpwmbmo
