Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Tuesday Update

Yes, I have a confession to make: Day 2 of the Read-a-Thon was not too successful for me…but wait! I do have a valid excuse! It was my daughter’s third birthday and though we didn’t have a formal party (since her actual party will be in a few weeks), her grandparents and her grand-aunt and godmother came to bear a cake and some presents!

Which cut into real time for me to dig in deep and read to my “heart’s content.” So please forgive me. My stats for yesterday are not too impressive, but I’ll be the first to admit it! Besides…how can you stay angry when you look at this face?

My daughter, Mercedes, who turned three yesterday!
