On our walk from the station to the store we discovered Burlington House, home to five learned societies including the Geological Society, the Royal Astronomical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry. But it is more well known as the venue for the Royal Academy's temporary art exhibitions, one of which we saw in the courtyard.
Inside, it is only remarkable in the way all bookstores are remarkable. They suck me in and I feel like I'll never read all that I want to read.
We left the store, walked through the rain back to the station and had a quiet ride home, in time to pick up the big kids from school.
**The book I bought was Man's Search for Meaning. Richard and I are going to Krakow and Auschwitz in a couple weeks, and I think I need some emotional prophylactics, if there are such a thing.
