48 Hour Book Challenge for me. I've had a good night's sleep and am ready to get started again. For the first half, I was able to read for 11 hours and 45 five minutes which was beyond my wildest expectations. I read
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
The Silent Boy by Lois Lowry
Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko
For cleanliness reasons, I listened to Guests of the Ayatallah by Mark Bowden while cleaning up, taking a shower, and blow-drying and straightening my hair. I may have damaged my ears some with the whole hair drying/listening bit, but it sure made it seem to go faster.
I also spent some of that time reading out loud to my 11-year-old a book we've been flying through this weak, Trading Faces by Julia DeVillers. I was scared I would be bored with this one when she picked it out, but it's quite entertaining. We're hoping to finish it today.
Today I will continue to read Countdown by Deborah Wiles, and then I don't know what. I do have a carnival to go to this morning and a fundraiser event tonight involving eating yummy food. And looking around there's a fair amount of housework to be done. I'm not as good at ignoring it as I once was.
