Yes! Yes indeedy. And it's the atmosphere that I really love. It sort of
surrounds me in a bubble when I'm reading those books, and the words are
all the right words to be in that bubble, and the plot is part of the
atmosphere, part of the scenery. It's like a physical path that you're
tracing, spread out before you, in the atmosphere.

morning to me, so my brain is kind of fuzzy.
