Reading a little something

This is the most fun I’ve had reading in weeks.

The book arrived, as ordered online, through the mail, and I managed to bring it from the mailbox to the back steps.
Then Chris got his bicycle from the garage to head off to class.

I sat down on the top step and wondered at how thin and small the book is.  I began reading, maybe just one chapter.  Homework and housework could wait just a few minutes.

Next thing I know, the complete book was done, and I closed it, with a sigh escaping my lips as I realized I had been holding my breath for the whole last page.

Chris came riding his bike back up the sidewalk.  I had read all of Lilies of the Field  by William E. Barrett in about an hour.

What a pleasant distraction!
