We had a quake out here in California, mostly in Napa, so I read from Mark Twain, "Quake."  Then went on to "Reading in the Digs," and Chap. 1 of  "Huck Finn."  It makes for a nice comparison of writing from late in Twain's life and much earlier when he was newly married in a "love match" that brought much joy and his best writing.
