Plenty of Reading Materials

An indoor, white-on-white sort of day. Rain and snow all night and day, and everything is ice and snow-covered now. A good day for reading and writing and pouring over maps.
I made soup and steamed up the windows. I’m reading a textbook on paleosols at the moment, aka “paleopedology.” Obscure, yes. Amusingly, the author introduces the book by referencing “the opening page of Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita, where paleopedology is listed as a scientific interest of Humbert’s.” Wow. A guaranteed pot-boiler!
