3-30-19 read-a-thon

Hey there fellow readers!  Here is how my recent read-a-thon went. 

Not being sure if I would get a nap, I didn't exactly stay up all night beginning at midnight.  This was more of a laid back weekend read-a-thon.  I started off Friday night and Saturday morning reading The Royal Rabbits of London.  My new furry friend Shylo always seems to save the day!
"By will and by luck, with a moist carrot, a wet nose, and a slice of mad courage."
I'm definitely a new fan of this children's series!

 (Clarice doesn't exactly have second child syndrome...I think I have more pictures of her than I ever did of!)

Next up on the agenda was waiting for noon to arrive so Clarice and I could go to the indoor pool.

And then later flying a kite...

And then I finally got around to reading The Ambrose Deception.
 This was a fun, twisty-mystery that kept me guessing!

On Sunday afternoon after church I read The Stranger.
I sort of have mixed feelings about this one.  It was a straight forward story that was easy to follow, but any stuffy literary person would encourage you to "look for the deeper meaning."
I sort of jokingly subtitled it...Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.

And of course we have to include a picture of Lance.
Three books...although I had already started two of them.  This weekend made me realize how much reading I can get done when I really make it a focus.  

Hope you all have a great week!
