Quote of the day

In the cold, nearly colorless light of a New England winter, two men on horseback traveled the coast road below Boston, heading north.

The opening sentence of David McCullough's John Adams, a book refreshingly free of pictures. I started it yesterday after a reviving draught of murder in Emma Lathen's first John Putnam Thatcher mystery, Banking on Death. More on my reading proclivities and feebleness below.
