So - I promise myself to fix some of those things before next April.
1. What are you reading right now? I am really enjoying Sod and Stubble by John Ise. It is a pioneer story of the truest kind, in fact was more of actual diary notations than it was intended to be a book. The Ise family came from Germany and eventually came to "western" Kansas . . . Downs and Osborne Kansas to take hold of some free ground. Little did they know how much of Kansas was really Out West yet.
2. How many books have you read so far? None completely - but a chapter of Colossians, four chapters of The Winter Street and a couple of Sod and Stubble. Plus one chapter of In Pursuit of God.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? I'm going to go back and forth between Sod and Stubble and the Christmas book, Winter Street.
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Quite a few - self made - so who can I blame but myself. I really have vowed to be able to set aside EVERYTHING next time for 24 hours. That means hubs will not be getting any honey do jobs that he needs my help with, it means no guests, it means no phone calls, it also means no plans for Sunday so that I can sleep as needed. I love it that you can make the readathon your own, but just once I want to take in the full experience of being all alone with my books.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far - - - I'm always amazed at how many people join in. And especially happy to share one more picture from my granddaughter Rachel's first readathon at six months of age. Her big sister came home to visit today and so she got to read the 4th and final book with her tonight: Guess How Much I Love You.
