Daily Dose

From The Dream King: Ludwig II of Bavaria, by Wilfred Blunt


"Many, too, were the books that the King gave to his friends; for he himself was a voracious reader and would often read through the night until dawn. 'Reading is my greatest pleasure,' he told Wagner, '-- one in which I really indulge to excess; for even when I am driving through the loveliest mountain valleys I cannot do without it,'"

From the chapter, King of the Alps


  1. Hi,

    Kevin, here. I was your asst. mgr. @ Stacey's on Sacramento St. I've been googling people from my past and found your blog (yes, I'm bored, lol). Glad to see you & Allen are still together and that you're still in the book biz. I'm a library technician at Univ of Nevada, Reno. Say "Hi" sometime, if you wish. Take care.

    P.S. - I heard about the Market St. store. :(

  2. Marvelous to hear from you, Kevin! Hello, indeed. Find me on Facebook, if you do that sort of thing. I'd love to be in touch with you again. (And congratulations on escaping retail!)

  3. Well, I came to comment on how much Ludwig looks like Michael Chabon in this picture and find Kevin here. Not looking for me, of course, but it's good to know you're well.

  4. Hi Richard! I do remember you. (I think, lol.)

    Brad: I do not have a Facebook account at the moment, but I was planning on creating an account, anyway. Give me a week or two, and I'll contact you there. (I'll post here again if I have trouble finding you on FB) Yes, I'd love to keep in touch w/ you; I've let far too many people from my past drift away w/ the sands of time.
