For Whom the Bell Tolls

I drove close to 800 miles on a couple back to back road trips the weekend before last. I staved off boredom with finishing For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway and Kokoro by Natsume Sōseki, my first two audiobooks on my Audible subscription.

Souls-Mates: The City of the Gods

The saga of my Dark Souls co-op adventure with the girlfriend continues. I’m wishing I’d started this whole series earlier in our game. So, here is a little recap. A bit drab, but nice for context.
