Stopping by coffee works after work because I needed to run some errands. Only have the ebook to read so that's what I'm doing. Looks like Italy is being difficult (to the Avignon pope)

"Goat-footed priests, monkeys, minstrels, flowers, birds, castles, lusting demons, and imaginary beasts twine through the pages in bizarre companionship with the sanctity of prayer." medieval marginalia is the best. Also, fashion chapter. Also, also, peach tart.

1. I'm back at A Distant Mirror. Approaching the halfway point. It's a long, dense book. Also Sakhalin Island, but it's longer, denser, and boring. I finished This Is How You Lose the Time War yesterday.
2. "When the château passed passed into the possession or Philip of Burgundy, the devices were kept in working order by a resident artist."
3. Oat caramel latte.

"Evidence /... / indicates that women‘s death rate was higher than men‘s between the ages of twenty and forty, presumably from childbearing and greater vulnerability to disease. After forty the death rate was reversed, and women, once widowed, were allowed to choose for themselves whether to remarry or not." this is true for most of post-antiquity European history; the best position a woman can find herself is as a window.

4.5⭐ the 2nd book, continues the story of the people of Develish and their struggle to survive the Black Dearh of the 14th century. The writer weaves a compelling tale of a Lady Anne and the serfs of this desmesne bold desire to live as free men and women.

Also thanks to @Caroline2 for sending me this book, as I would've struggled with today's prompt if I hadn't catalogued it on LibraryThing!

Texreader Such a good book 1w
