What a delightful morning of reading and listening! And now, after a break for lunch (homemade split pea soup with homemade bread), and a short walk because the sun finally came out after our rainy morning, I’m back for an afternoon of reading and listening. This is turning out to be a wonderful, calm, comforting read-a-thon for me.
I hope you are all enjoying your reading for this springtime read-a-thon, too!
1:00 pm, Pacific Daylight Time:
This afternoon, I am in the middle of reading The White Robin, by Miss Read. I’ve been slowly reading and savoring over the last few years, the Fairacre series, reading the books in order and not wanting it to ever end. When I do finish with Fairacre, I will move on to her Thrush Green series, but I mourn the day I finish all of her books. Of course, I can always start again and re-read them all!
UPDATE: 4:15 pm, Pacific Daylight Time
This afternoon, I am still reading (and enjoying) The White Robin, by Miss Read. The morning rain finally stopped and the sun came out, so I just had to spend a little time outside. I took some flower photos from around the yard to share with you. And then it’s back to my book, to finish before dinnertime!
UPDATE: 7:00 pm, Pacific Daylight Time
I finished reading The White Robin, and loved it as much as Miss Read’s other books in the Fairacre series. Dinner and getting settled into the evening have taken up some of my reading time, but I’ve started my next book: No One is Too Small to Make a Difference, by Greta Thunberg. This is a library book that I checked out just before the quarantine started. I saved it to read for today’s read-a-thon!
UPDATE: 9:15 pm, Pacific Daylight Time
I am just finishing the book by Greta Thunberg, my last book for this April read-a-thon. I’m so impressed with Greta! Friends, we need to listen to her! Right now!
It sounds like you’re having a lovely day devoted to reading! I sat in a comfy chair and read some of my book club’s book (Sapiens), but then had to get up and move so I went for a walk in the sunshine. It turned out to be a gorgeous day!
Love that painting by Gina Brown. I may have to borrow it sometime for a blog post!

Les, it really is a lovely day for a read-a-thon! I loved my morning inside just reading. We had quite heavy rain for awhile, and it was very gray outside, so it was nice to just be inside with books! And then this afternoon has been sunny and warm, so I had to get outside for some vitamin D! And I do love that painting by Gina Brown, too. Of course, you may use it any time!
