Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Image: Connor and BooksIt is going to be a quiet day in the Shannon household. We are all participating in 2011 Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon, and I didn’t have to twist their arms. I mention a day of reading, and the kids immediately started gathering books. I think they are a bit ambitious, but who am I to complain?

The adults in the family are a might more realistic in what we hope to accomplish today. Jim just wants to finish his book, The Reservoir by John Milliken Thompson, and I’m just trying to get through as much as possible. I am in the middle of three different books and would like to finish one more review book this weekend. Either way, we are going to keep it low-key this time. No time goals or dropping everything to read. We are playing it by ear, enjoying the weather and the family time and one of our favorite pastimes.
