Read-a-Thon Update Two
Is it the half-way point of this read-a-thon already? I guess it doesn't seem like it since I started late and yet it's still a bit hard to imagine that there are 12 hours left! We went out for lunch and I grabbed this little fella on the way home. Another comforting thing on a dreary day.

Now I'm heading for a nap (I am still sick after all) and taking The Boy with The Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu up with me. It's a very small book so it should be a breeze to get through but I'll probably end up sleeping for a couple of hours first.
