Armchair reading you won't find in my house
I would really like to spend some time with Stravinsky and the Russian Traditions: A Biography of the Works Through Mavra (Hardcover) by Richard Taruskin. I was able to take a look at a copy in the local University library; unfortunately it's considered too valuable to check out. It's two big, beautiful volumes, and I have just the armchair I'd like to read then in. However, with a list price of USD195, it's just not going to happen.
