Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon--I'm in! (also wolf skins, library books, and Miss Suzy had a baby)

It's supposed to be a rainy day here in Rhode Island tomorrow, which means the pressing things that need to get done outside won't get done....so, since I'll probably be inside reading anyway, I decided to jump on board Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon! (I'm number 344--yoikes!)

I won't be reading for the full 24 hours--my husband is off teaching at a gathering of Irish pipers in the Catskills (I got to go to Kidlitcon last week, so it evens out), which means I will have my Darling Boys with me all day. And we have a Halloween party to go to, which means that I have to make a Berserker costume tonight, and sadly, we have no wolf skins kicking around the house...any one in Rhode Island have any spare pelts I can borrow?

Anyway. I sure have lots of books to read...and they are mostly library books that have multiple holds on them, so I feel guilty as heck about keeping them piled up here. My goal is to read at least five books tomorrow. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, as they say at my children's school. (We never said the lemon part when I was young, although I was at a British school in Portugal at their age, so what do I know. Veering further off topic, I find it interesting that in the Bahamas, where we lived next, "Miss Suzy" was popular, and almost identical to the US version).
