Sunday Salon - Second Post

I stopped to do a little housework, then came back and set a kitchen timer for thirty minutes' more reading. By page eighty-eight I was too enthralled to pay any attention to the timer, so I kept reading to page one hundred, forty-three. I wonder if 'old James', the driving force behind the family's emigration, was really the chronic malcontent he's portrayed to be. I have to remind myself that this is a story and not true history!

Glad you had such a good time with it!

I've been using a timer, too. I wonder if others are. I'm not counting down, though. I'm counting up. And I keep it right next to me because I have to turn it on and off constantly with all the interruptions. It's interesting, though, to see just how long it takes you to read just how much.
