Ok, you’re in for a group update.  Here’s the skinny:

Anna from Diary of an Eccentric, after 12 hours, is still reading The Return by Victoria Hislop and she is not halfway through it.  She says, “I’m lazy and don’t want to post.  Please forgive me.”  Anna has yet to finish 1 book yet.  As for interruptions, “We’re reading with a 9-year-old, what do you think?” she says.  LOL  Anna is tired and is looking forward to finishing The Return.  She is slowing down, though, or so she tells me.

The Girl is still reading Bone, but its the second book of Bone she’s read today.  This one is called Bone:  Out From Boneville.  She says, “I’ve been switching between Bone and R.L. Stine.”  She even had the privilege of using her mom’s Book Buddy, and she likes adjusting the ribbons, so much so she was distracted for a bit.  Girl says that there have been interruptions for her too, like movies and playing with the dog.  She is far from tired and very energetic. [It must be the candy.]  She is looking forward to finishing Bone.  Mom says, “For a 9-year-old, she’s doing well.”

As for me, I have three books going right now:  More of Me Disappears by John Amen (poetry), Night of Flames by Douglas Jacobson, and Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris.  I’m looking forward to having one of these three read in the next hour, which will likely be the poetry book at this point.  Then I will concentrate on the other two.  I’ve only read one book so far, but should have a second book done soon.  There have been interruptions from good movies to The Girl (though not so bad) and time spent cooking to taking the dog out, which were all perfectly fine distractions for me.  I’m not tired yet, and can’t wait to see how long I stay up actually reading, though there is that early yard sale in the morning…

We had some pork loin and corn for dinner and some guac and chips for dessert–not to mention the Halloween candy we’ve been snacking on.
