Please continue volume three of In Search of Lost Time entitled The Guermantes Way. Due to members reading different translations, we will set our reading assignment end-points by synopsis descriptions e,g,: Read up to but not including: An Afternoon Reception at Mme. de Villaperisis's. (Read up to and including this sentence: "He would join me there, but preferred that we should not go in together, so that he might appear to have only just arrived in Paris instead of having spent half the day already with me." There is a double paragraph space at that point [in Kilmartin, Enright, not Treharne].

Kilmartin page: 187

Enright: 244

    Happy 142nd Birthday, M. Proust. From which volume is this quote: “The time which we have at our disposal every day is elastic; the passions that we feel expand it, those that we inspire contract it; and habit fills up what remains.”
