"Memo: Today is July 7, 1977."

I found this in a used copy of LITTLE WOMEN: "Memo: Today is July 7, 1977. You can also write that 7/7/77. No one will be able to write that again for 100 years. I am 13 years old. Maybe I'll live for another century. Goodbye 7/7/77."


  1. a voice from the past, a message in a bottle. like someone else's marginalia in second-hand books: the best reason to buy them.

  2. Steel is classified as iron that has .2 to 2.1% carbon by weight. Cast Iron is classified as iron that has 2.1% to ~4% carbon by weight.

  3. Off topic, but I'm enjoying "The Secret History," which I hear you read 15 TIMES. Michelle recommended. Masterful storytelling so far (bout halfway through). Real distinctive voice, smart, eloquent.
