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!
