What book are you reading right now? 

“My wife and I are slowly making our way through ‘Mid­dle­march’ by George Eliot. Eliot has a gift for cre­ating believable char­acters and for describing their everyday inter­ac­tions in a way that makes you think you’ve met someone very like them before. Her wry sense of humor results in numerous quotable zingers, but also in quieter reflec­tions that are equally winsome. The novel addresses issues including the con­di­tions of the working class, the place of women in society, and assorted reli­gious themes, but mostly it describes humans acting like humans.”
