After lazing the morning away myself with reading and nodding off ("What!?" she appeals defensively), and after being reminded the other (re-organizing) day of such treasures on our shelves as Captains Courageous and King Solomon's Mines, I grabbed a few books and called Trev.
"What do you want to read next?" I asked.
I read him the descriptions on the back of each... he wasn't very enthusiastic with any of my offerings. Hmmmm...
"Hey! What about this!? Let's read this."
It was Because of Winn-Dixie.
The plan was to read at least a chapter a day-- if we don't read every day then we lose our interest in the story.
We read the whole book.
All 180 pages, I think it was.
A fine story, that Winn-Dixie.
And a great way to spend an afternoon.
During the very end of the story, Daddy came home and it was time for us to race off to our historic farm-- Mama had a photography class to attend offered by a Pro in our Urban Homesteaders group.
Again, not a bad way to pass the time.
What can I say?
Life is good.
