Catching up... Wednesday 30 July, 2008
At least I had something cool to play with when I got back to work... a huge collection of letters from Charles Darwin.

OMG! How fantastic!! Last year I read the autobiography of his wife, Emma. So fascinating. Is there any mention of her in his letters?

Helen said...

Edit: It was the biography, not the autobiography. Duh.

I don't really get paid to read the letters unfortunately - I wish! I do sometimes skim over them as I'm working, though. But alas, I find his writing kind of hard to decipher, so I don't read his letters much. I would love to learn more about him, though... Channel 4 is showing a documentary about him on Monday at 8pm!
