Update for the 48 Hour Reading Challenge hosted by Mother Reader:
I have read 4 and 1/2 books so far:
The Abbey Girls on Trial, by Elsie Oxenham. Not my favorite of her Abbey series. To much introspective trauma, done heavy handedly. 314p
Emma-Jean Lazarus fell out of a tree. This was a peach of a book. (gah. I don't have it with me here at the library. I'm pretty sure it's 199p.)
Follow the Footsteps, by William Mayne. A slightly pedestrian treasure hunt story, a genre I don't like, but the book is not without charm. Again, pagination doubts. 207? or perhaps I am confusing this one and Emma-Jean.
The slightly true story of Cedar B. Hartley by Martine Murray. (Australian book, 2004). I really liked this one! I look books about people learning to do things (in this case, acrobatics). But the title is pathetic. 240 pages.
I will try to get more posted, but am not sure I will be able to until Monday. It depends on whether I can persuade someone to copy an email and put it on here...why does our Mac hate blogger so?
It is very nice that a. it is raining b. I cleaned the house yesterday.
This means I feel less guilt about reading.
