Is it possible that I went a month without making any headway in either Tristram Shandy or The Three Roosevelts? Why yes, it's perfectly possible. I last opened the biography to counter a social security chain email reeking of misinformation that my aunt sent me at the beginning of September and I'm not really sure where the Sterne is.
