A Tale of Two Cities

I just got A Tale of Two Cities on audible to listen to with Nicole. It's 14 hours long. I think it's a great book for our times. It is also one of the most important 100 books for high school kids in the US to read. We are slowly getting through the list. She still wants to go to College in America. I am going to miss her when she is gone!

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way"

Charles Dickens

It's funny nothing is new under the sun. It still is the best of times and worst of times.
