>How many do YOU bring?

>I will be out of the office the rest of this week, giving a speech in Vermont and then taking a few days to enjoy the Green Mountain State ( a visit to Beau Ties, I hope, and any recommendations for food and ice cream would be much appreciated). And I’m bringing a prodigious number of books whose pages I cannot hope to get through and whose ISBNs I reproduce below in the spirit of reckless theft of intellectual property:

978-0385516297
978-0399154300
978-0670038664
978-0061231728
978-0871139603
978-0452288522
978-1400043958

Richard, on the other hand, is only bringing 978-0385721790 and 978-1400032914, which is far more sensible (and they’re both excellent) but I always worry that if I bring only two, it will be the wrong two. And then where are you?

Miss Pod is coming with us too, and she’s fully loaded with Susan Cooper’s Dark is Rising series, which I’m rereading-hearing in preparation for our chat in November. It’s always good to have a book along you already know you love.

  1. >You and Richard would have a delicious lunch in a beautiful spot were you to bop on down to Simon Pearce restaurant (and glassblowing and weaving shop) in Quechee, a hop and a skip from Lake Morey.

    >Thanks! I’ve just gotten back from a run around Lake Morey–about five miles. Halfway through I thought, hmmm, it’s kind of hot; maybe I should turn around. Then I reflected on the fact that my math skills need some work.

  3. >If you find yourself in Montpelier, Morse Farm has something called a maple cremee– soft-serve ice cream made with their own maple syrup.

    >翻译联盟和中国翻译协会深圳翻译公司|联合主办,主题“翻译与多元文化”。这是国际翻译同声传译在亚洲举行的第一次盛会,是促进亚洲翻译界与国际翻译界交流与合作的大好时机。
    广州翻译公司今年广交会不允许外商自带翻译入场,但还是有很多翻译公司|已有生意合作意向的外商,在全国翻译公司中找外语导游当翻译,进行“场外商贸洽谈”。
    同声传译现在上海翻译公司英语、日语、法语等语种导游储备充足,深圳翻译公司|也是随着参加广交会的巴西、西班牙等西班牙语系以及阿拉伯语国家的客商提供深圳翻译大幅增多,使小语种导游产生巨大缺口,其中来自巴西的外商比去年多了一倍翻译公司
