What does re-opening look like?

How was Pillars of the Earth? I want to read that one.
It's wonderful - Ken Follett's masterpiece - with an engaging and dramatic story built around the building of a great cathedral. And well-drawn, intriguing characters, particularly two who are villian/hero to put it simply.

I've read is several times and feel ready to read it again.

And it's been expanded into a series of three, the other two being 'World Without End' and 'Column of Fire'. I enjoyed those as well, but it was 'Pillars' that is most memorable.

This is my third time reading Pillars of the Earth - got about 150 pages into it. Also currently reading Sin Eater and the second Veronica Speedwell mystery.

Massachusetts goes to Phase 3 on Monday with gyms, museums, casinos and movie theaters allowed to open with capacity limits and strict public health monitoring. Despite the monitoring, this won’t end well, especially if we have a heat wave. We have a long tradition of rushing to air conditioned spaces if it’s hot for a few days in a row. Central air is still a rarity in most homes.

Yeah, I am not sure this is the best move right now. Our numbers have improved so much ... I'd like to see them stay there, and go even lower. The only thing I'm tempted by are museums, as it would be a welcome distraction for the kids. Plus, they're usually so big and quiet and crowd-free. But, still, I'll probably hold off for a while.
