Post 1: Started the morning with coffee and "The Christmas Secret" by Donna VanLiere. This book is part of the Take-A-Chance Challenge we're doing at the library where I work. (www.takeachancechallenge.blogspot.com). Teenage daughter and her friend chatted to me so much that I didn't actually get much read this past hour - but lots of giggles. :)
Dave is reading "Blood Covenant" by Michael Franzese.
Post 2: Another hour gone and not much progress I'm afraid. Fortunately teenage daughter will be out of the house for the weekend shortly (Going to visit her brother at college - I may spend more time worrying than reading :) . Thanks for all of the "Reader of the Hour" love. Enjoyed all the encouragement.
Post 3: We spent the last hour-and-a-half reading our "joint" book - "Anatomy of a Murder" by Robert Travers. This is one of Dave's picks for the Take-A-Chance Challenge at our local library. A courtroom drama from 1958, it's full of interesting detail and we have a good time trying to predict where the case is headed. We'll be reviewing it here when we finish.
The K-State/Colorado game starts in 5 minutes, so Dave will be taking a short (3 hour??) reading break while he cheers for the Cats. I'll be supporting them from the couch with my books.
Post 4: Another hour gone and I'm not making much progress on my Christmas book. Too much time answering the phone, entering challenges and finding snacks??? Back to the book!
Post 5: Nearing the end of my first book. Having fun with the newest challenges. May have to break for some lunch - and maybe shower and get dressed at some point?
Post 6: (3:10 p.m.) Under 20 pages to go on "The Christmas Secret". Can't decide what to start next. Bacon cheeseburger refueled me, so back to the pages.
Post 7: (4:35 p.m.) Uh-oh. Took a little snooze there. Finished read the Christmas Secret and just couldn't hold me eyes open any longer. Time to hit the shower to refresh and pick out book #2.
