When I work in the kitchen alone, I listen to Vanity Fair through Librivox, free audiobooks from the public domain. If you love a deep, delicious English accent, take a moment, click on the link, and scroll down to chapter 8 to listen to Graham Williams read. There are many different volunteer readers, but he is hands-down the best. If I could afford it, I would hire Graham Williams to read every book in my library.
Today, as I prepare for some serious feasting tomorrow, I thought I’d share this thought from Thackeray:
Yes, let us eat our fill of the vain thing, and be thankful therefore.
