Reading Wednesday Returns After a Short Hiatus

Les Miserables progress:

270 / 755 (35.76%)

Last week, I was a little preoccupied. This week I have had some time to get back to reading. Basically, I read the whole of the convent digression -- not a particularly famous one, but it was entertaining to me to watch Hugo's piety versus his "modern" ideals play out. Monasteries! Terrible! Prayer! Good! How do we resolve this? It'll take a couple thousand words. Oh, you're wondering what's going to happen to our principle characters, are you? You can wait a few more pages while I tell you the layout of the convent gardens and a funny little anecdote about a secular sister who lived there for a while.
