What ho, intrepid readers! Jessica and I took some time to eat lunch (while still reading, of course), and then spent a perfectly reasonable 45 minutes putting together a sentence for Kate at Midnight Book Girl’s spooky-themed book sentence challenge.
Invisible monsters fake all things bright and beautiful–calling you, tender morsels, if you come softly.
We’ve done a good deal of reading, too. Jessica finished M.T. Anderson’s Thrilling Tales: Whales on Stilts!, read through The Rough-Face Girl, and has read some of Leviathan and Tending the Wild, and I read Volume 1 of Sweet Tooth and bits of The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume One: The Pox Party and Vineland. I hope everyone else’s reading is going well and that you’re not too tired! It’s 2pm here in California, so we still have plenty of daylight to go.
