24 Hour Read-a-thon: Hour 4 and Mini Challenge

Moving into Hour 4 of the Read-a-thon, I must say I'm quite impressed with my kids. I figured by now my son would be back at our house playing video games! Emma has finished her first book which she started a few days ago and Ryan is close to finishing his. Here are our page counts so far:

Emma: 81 pages
Ryan: 64 pages
Me: 75 pages

Not real high counts, but of course I took a little time out for blogging and the kids have dipped into the snacks! This hour's Mini Challenge from Bart is to turn to your bookshelf and construct a sentence from book titles. Because I am at my parents' house, I am limited to our TBR stacks, which made it a little challenging! But here you go:

The outsiders breathe precious knots and crosses.

Makes a whole lot of sense, huh? Hey, I'm just doing what I'm told!

Happy reading everyone! I'm about to finish my book, so I must run...

There's a certain poetry to it, Sandy. Like it.

Way to go to those great kids of yours! And you too of course. Go Nawrot family!!

I have been thinking about trying Ian Rankin - I look forward to finding out if you think he is any good.
