My Victorian Year #29

I've read two chapters in Anthony Trollope's The Small House at Allington. But Trollope has barely even started character descriptions at this point--not a bit of plot. It is a reread so I vaguely remember that it is a romance focusing on two sisters and their suitors....but not much of anything to share this week.

I am reading Alexandre Dumas' Three Musketeers. It is SO enjoyable, so delightful, so fun.

"Whoever says Richelieu says Satan." "Be quiet, Madame, be quiet, you might be heard!" "Yes, you're right, and I'd be ashamed for you in your cowardice." (191)
"We've sworn blind trust and unfailing devotion to each other once and for all." (203)
