The Sunday Salon

I had another busy Sunday today that kept me from reading as much as I would have liked but I eventually got an hour here (while I was cooking dinner) and an hour there (once the kiddos went to bed) to devote to the relaxing pastime. And it was productive too. I finished Carry On, Mr. Bowditch by Jean Lee Latham. The review is forthcoming. I read 25 pages the first hour and 50 pages the second. That second hour is my normal reading speed, which is not to say that it's fast or something to be proud of but at least it wasn't the big disappointment that last week was.
Next week is not looking too promising for solid reading time either as I have a Pre-Thanksgiving Potluck with friends but I will see what I can do. Have a great coming week. I hope you get lots of time to read.

Rest assured that even at 25 pages an hour you're much faster than me, Petunia!

Thanks Clare. What's really sad about it is that this was kiddie lit I was reading, which usually goes much faster. Actually, my speed has improved with steady practice.

50 pages an hour is pretty quick!
