Obviously, Ninja Skills operate at a higher rate if one is not tired and reading 8 point font off a Nook! I also had slightly longer books today; it was good to start with shorter ones yesterday.
Starting at 6:00 a.m., I read:
Ruby, Lois. Rebel Spirits. Swoony, historical ghost romance.
Massey, David. Torn. Awesome story of a medic in Afghanistan.
Cervantes, Angela. Gaby, Lost and Found. Good middle grade realistic fiction combining pets and a mother who is deported back to Honduras.
Korman, Gordon. The Hypnotists: Book One. Is there ANYTHING this man can't write. Great stuff.
Spent a fair amount of time reading, but did not finish, the following:
Fisher, Sam. Scare Scape. Took forever to load thirty odd pages of descriptions of monsters, and once I got to the actual story I realized it was a bit young for my students.
Smith, Alexander Gordon. The Fury. Love the Lockdown series, and this started off well, but there were way too many characters and almost 700 pages. The readers who like Lockdown may not committ to 700 pages. I will check this out in print and see if I make better headway.
Voigt, Cynthia. Mister Max: The Book of Lost Things. Voigt's prose is beautiful, but after getting 100+ pages in, I realized that I couldn't think of a single student to recommend this to (oddly historical mystery), and that Voigt's books have all been gathering dust on the shelf, even Bad Girls.
That makes 21 hours and 24 books so far. Glad to see we had more people join last night!
